The Body Stress Release Academy was established in 1987 and is situated in the rural area of Rondevlei between Wilderness and Sedgefield. Knysna and George are the largest towns nearby. The whole area is known as the Garden Route. The faculty members are the founders, Ewald and Gail Meggersee.

The Academy conducts the practitioner training course over 5 months (usually May to September), which includes an apprenticeship program. Currently 26 students are selected from all over the world. Classes take place during the morning, Monday to Friday, and some afternoons with the rest of the day available for studying, extra practise and leisure pursuits.

The syllabus covers anatomy, BSR philosophy and principles, technique theory and practise, communication, office procedures, client management, case studies and a study of the BSR Constitution. Instruction is in the form of lecturing/teaching, demonstration and practical experience. On successfully passing the four final examinations and completing the apprenticeship program, the student receives the BSR Practitioner Certificate.
