Inspiration and Dedication

I wanted to share an older article from Massage Therapy Canada, Summer 2013. This article is written by Ute Gavel, RMT and shares the story of a remarkable RMT named Marion Lemmon whose dedication and passion to her clients and the profession are inspirational. It’s the time of the year when many students are looking to return to their studies or entering into a new program which can sometimes prove to be a bit overwhelming. It is important to remember that dedication and passion are the first steps to success.

The following is an exert from Gavel’s article entitled Accessing the Possibilites: The Story of Marion Lemmon, RMT:

 

“Quite simply, I am […]

Community Outreach

CoOutreach 1mmunity outreach is a supervised practical program for the benefit of our students to reinforce and acquire further experience in the development of their skills and knowledge in massage therapy. Students must complete 100 hours of outreach before graduating from our Massage Therapy Program.

 

Outreach is both an enjoyable and educational experience for our students. They occur in a variety of settings including work environments, festivals, community athletic events and at the school. This provides our students the opportunity to practice their skills in different environments. Outreach events also benefit our community by having the students provide massage to the participants.

Considering training to become an equine massage therapist? If so it is important to understand the role of the International Federation of Registered Equine Massage Therapists and the ways in which they help to promote the highest standards in equine massage.

What is the Registered Massage Therapist’s Association of Ontario, or RMTAO?

What is the RMTAO?


For individuals considering a career as a Registered Massage Therapist, this is an important question that you should be asking. It is also important to distinguish the RMTAO from the CMTO (our profession’s regulatory body) as their mandates and responsibilities are different.

The Registered Massage Therapist’s Association of Ontario is a not-for-profit establishment that was created in 1936 for the purposes of advancing the profession of Massage Therapy in the province of Ontario. The RMTAO is a member driven organization which functions as the only recognized voice for Registered Massage Therapists in our province. The primary purpose of the RMTAO is […]

D’Arcy Lane Alumni – Success Story

darcy-lane-institute-logo-2xD’Arcy Lane Institute recently received a letter from an individual with regards to a graduate of D’Arcy Lane, Stephanie Grant. Both Stephanie and her client have requested that this story be shared. They would like to share her client’s story to recognize Stephanie and as an example of the ability of massage therapy to facilitate healing in the body and improve the overall well-being of an individual’s life.

Infant Massage!

infant massage 6Infant Massage!

On April 23rd the second year D’Arcy Lane students had the opportunity to learn about infant massage. Massage for your little ones can help to improve circulation, relieve discomfort from gas and constipation, stimulate the neurological system, increase alertness and reduce stress. Infant massage also fosters the special bond between parent and child.

A special thank you to all of the parents who brought their little ones into the school!
