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 full hour of relaxing massage for $20. The clinic begins Wednesday, March 16, and continues through Wednesday, May 11. Hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.. Wednesdays and 9:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Fridays.
Associate Therapeutic Massage Professor Michael Adamson said the students will be performing Swedish relaxation massages as well as connective tissue/deep tissue massages. This is the second time the clinic has been offered, and the response to last year’s clinic was amazing, Adamson said. During that clinic, 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.
