Let Rend Lake College’s Massage Therapy students break up the stress of a hectic day with a relaxing massage at the Therapeutic Massage Clinic at the RLC MarketPlace in Mt. Vernon.
Enjoy a half hour of relaxing massage for $15, or knead away your tensions for a full hour for $20. The clinic will be open from 2 to 6 p.m. on Mondays and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesdays and Fridays. The clinic begins Monday, March 13, and runs through Friday, May 5. The clinic will be closed for Good Friday on April 14.
Associate Therapeutic Massage Professor Michael Adamson said the students will be performing Swedish relaxation massages as well as connective tissue / deep tissue massages. Response to previous clinics has been great, he said. During those clinics, the students performed dozens of massages each week for the public.
He said the students participating in the clinic will gain experience they otherwise would not receive by working on other students.
Rend Lake College’s Therapeutic Massage program prepares students for careers in massage and bodywork. Practitioners use their hands to apply various scientific principles to the muscles and soft tissue. Therapeutic massage is used to facilitate relaxation, health improvement and pain relief.
The clinic will be open to the public. Call (618) 242-8459 for an appointment. Walk-ins will be welcome when space is available. Add an hour of “me time” to your busy schedule and let our Therapeutic Massage students take away your worries.
