The Certified Pediatric Massage Therapist Course (CPMT) is coming to Des Moines, Iowa.
This Accredited 2-day professional training, taught by Master Teacher Tina Allen, will be held at Iowa’s longest running massage school, Deb Elliott’s prestigious College of Massage and The Healing Arts Center.
Imagine a place where “Welcome" is the word on the mat at the door and the pervasive feeling throughout.
Massage and healing techniques are taught as ways to "ripple-out" and change the world. Learning, acceptance, compassion, and service are the basis of professional theory and a way of life.
Deb Elliott imagined such a place and created the College of Massage and The Healing Arts Center.
Can you imagine, learning to help others while helping yourself? Imagine changing your career, changing your life and being a part of this place!
As Iowa's capital city, Des Moines is a hub of government action, business activity, arts and cultural affairs.
Nestled in the heart of downtown's Gateway Park, Ritual Cafe is a cultural hub for the City of Des Moines attracting artists of all walks.
While one wall is anchored with a permanent display of a local artist, other local artists rotate monthly on the walls surrounding the live performance area. Their stage hosts not only local, but nationally and internationally touring musicians and acts, too.
Although Ritual Cafe is identified first and foremost as a coffee house, they do offer delicious vegetarian food and made-from-scratch treats from some of the best local bakers.
Another one of our favorite spots is Mars Cafe, a locally-owned and operated, artisan coffee shop near Drake Univeristy! They serve coffee, espresso, tea, wine, beer, fresh locally baked goods, fresh sandwiches and paninis, and delicious desserts. The coffee at Mars Cafe comes from Kickapoo Coffee; a Fair Trade artisan roaster from Wisconsin.
Can you tell that we Loooove our coffee?!?

Finally, an accredited pediatric massage certification program for healthcare professionals who wish to expand their practice by providing massage therapy and nurturing touch for pediatric clients. The Liddle Kidz Foundation Certification course is an intense, fun and effective way to master the core skills of pediatric massage.
Founded by master teacher and philanthropist Tina Allen, the Liddle Kidz Foundation offers a new, comprehensive, research based training course and teaches students what they really need to know to provide pediatric massage.
Any experienced professional will tell you that there is a world of difference between learning how to massage a child from a book or DVD, and knowing how to provide the best care to meet a child’s needs, however, there are few opportunities to learn the skills they really need from a working healthcare professional who has provided pediatric massage education throughout the world.
As a CPMT, you have the special opportunity to provide specialized care through touch therapy to children who need it most.
