Father Kyungsu Son, M.M. is coordinating workshops to train blind people in massage therapy techniques, Shiatsu and reflexology. With this 12-month training, young blind adults are able to become productive members within society while providing income for their families.


Project Updates:

  • More than 30 students enrolled in the program
  • 19 blind students and four professors participated in a month-long "practicum" in massage therapy at the maximum security women’s prison which holds 300 prisoners
  • An additional 80 staff members of the prison received massage therapy
  • 19 blind students will graduate in March, 2017


Your gift will enable blind students to 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.
