Hello to everyone!

I recently get back to Mexico in df and I would love to take a massage course,maybe 2 or 3 months but i'm finding quite difficult to get the right couse and school
I'm wondering if someone know a good place for that ?!
I'm also interested in what is the alternative medicine field...which is kind of big field so I thought a massage course would be ideal to start...am i right?

would love some advices !
thanks Silvia

Hey Silvia,
My boyfriend is a traditional medicine man here in Mexico. He goes the La Feria de las Plantas every year in July in Nayarit. It is all in Spanish, so you'd have to speak the language. He says there are courses on nearly everything and it's super cheap and FANTASTIC. You'd meet a lot of traditional healers. Let me know if you want more info. Or try to google it.

Good luck!

Hola! That's great! My Spanish is not so good, unfortunately. :)
I don't know what there is for massage beforehand, but there are multiple ways of working in exchange for room and board. I'd recommend workaway.info - you can search the site for free, but have to pay (25 euros?) to join and contact the people. There's also helpexchange or helpex....i forget the name. If you go to my website (www.alchemyoftravel.com) and subscribe to the newsletter you'll automatically receive a newsletter with a list of 40+ helpful budget travel websites. I can't find the website now, but I'll ask my boyfriend what it is.

Best of luck!
