About Bonnie Thompson:

As a respected author, professor, and licensed massage therapist for more than 30 years, Bonnie has devoted her life to exploration and teaching the intricacies of the human body. A graduate of the Colorado Institute of Massage Therapy, Bonnie first opened her Neuromuscular Massage practice in 1987. 


Treating many patients with chronic pain, Bonnie immediately recognized the need to better understand and advance her knowledge of human anatomy and its functions. In 1994, Bonnie began her studies in dissection with world renowned anatomist Gil Hedley and later was an invited author by the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies. 


Her vision intensified while working on various projects throughout her career. In addition, she taught for schools both nationally and internationally where she has consistently inspired a community of practitioners. Bonnie’s diversity and practical experience in the fields of anatomy and neuromuscular therapy, combined with her knowledge and passion has grown into this viable dream of creating a non-profit organization that is dedicated to anatomical education and research.
