Community 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.
