A Note from Our Director

I am the founder and Director of Windemere and am most happy that you have chosen to visit our site and learn about the many opportunities Windemere has to offer. 

As a student in one of our diploma programs, you have a unique opportunity to learn and experience a variety of healing arts traditions and techniques.

 Our curriculum covers everything from Lomi Lomi massage to Ayurvedic herbs and essential oils. And we teach you how to use these tools (and many more) through clinical application.

Graduates of our program find that this broad range of skills make them a valuable asset to a variety of organizations, including spas and chiropractic offices.

 I want you to be happy and whole and possess the tools that will enable you to pass the art of healing to others through your service.

 With Warm Regards,
 Barbara Neebel Meier


Peace Be With You,
