Son, Kyungsu

Father Kyungsu Son, M.M., is the project advisor in which young blind adults of the House of Bartimaeus, the only school/center that teaches massage therapy affordably to the blind in Southern Lima, learn massage therapy techniques and reflexology and Shiatsu. Your gift will enable Father Son to purchase equipment, supplies and two one-month practicums in three prisons for a total of six campaignes.

The training workshop for the blind in massage therapy that began in 2013 has increasingly grown over the past five years and it is hopeful that by 2020, the project will be assumed by the Diocese of Lurin. Father Son provides pastoral counseling for the blind students and their families.

The students learn from licensed blind professors the application of theoretical and practical concepts of body therapies, the anatomy of human bone structure and muscle systems, and the functional physiology of the organs and joints.
