AFFIRMATION FOR SEPTEMBER

Our Father who art in heaven, may Thy kingdom come in the earth through thy presence in me, that the light of Thy word may shine unto those that I meet day by day. May Thy presence in my brother/[sister] be such that I may glorify Thee. May I so conduct my own life that others may know Thy presence abides with me, and thus glorify Thee. 

-- Edgar Cayce reading 262-30

The Cayce/Reilly School of massage is now accepting applications for October enrollment. Using both online and in classroom instruction, the staff and faculty are dedicated to providing a holistic educational environment, preparing students for a rewarding career in the health care industry. As the use of massage grows, so do the reasons for people seeking massage therapy. More and more people are recognizing massage as an important element in overall health and wellness and an effective way to relieve stress, manage pain, and treat injuries. The Cayce/Reilly Massage blends three different techniques: Swedish, Osteopathic, and Neuropathic. Contact the school for more information about the October semester.
