Philosophy and Vision

The philosophy of the Valerie Demery is based on the guiding principle of "wholeness" and the "inner healer." Valerie Demery believes that every physical imbalance is the result of lack of wholeness on one or more levels; body, mind, emotions or spirit and that each individual has an innate connection to their inner healer that can guide their healing process.


Massage and bodywork are powerful vehicles for healing, awareness and engaging the whole person through a synthesis of structure, function, energy and emotion. All the classes emphasize "whole-body learning" in a learning environment that is relaxing, dynamic and highly experiential.


In addition to outstanding professional skills, equal emphasis is placed on the personal development and growth of the students as the basis for facilitating others.


The vision of Valerie Demery is to bring the profession of natural therapy and bodywork to the level of fully integrated healing arts. Complementary healing modalities that reduce pain, promote wellness and address all levels of the whole person, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
