Dianna’s creative abilities, entrepreneurship and experience as manager, business owner, therapist and instructor, together with her care for people, make a fantastic background for her teachings at Body Wisdom, where she teaches a number of our Wellness- and reflexology electives. She is a natural at teaching and considers it her greatest passion. Many of our students refer to valuable lessons with her, that have transformed not just their education, but also their personal lives.
Dianna has successfully pioneered a program for corporations in an effort to reduce workman’s compensation cases and “recordable incidents” with an eye to decreasing their workman’s compensation rates and maintaining or improving their ISO ratings, while improving employee moral. In addition, she put together and implemented massage and chair massage programs for some of the biggest corporations in America.
