Feeling a bit tense but don’t have enough cash burning a hole in your pocket to splurge for a long and relaxing massage?
First College in downtown Kelowna might be able to help you with your problem.
The school is offering massages from its students at a large discount on Tuesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Clients will receive a 75-minute relaxation massage for $30.
First College students are also conducting relaxation massages with three other types of treatment for $35: infrared sauna, paraffin hand treatment and paraffin foot treatment.
Student massage therapy treatments are a learning and practice opportunity for students to hone their skills and professional development in a clinical setting. Students start in the clinic in their third term of the program, and continue through until their sixth and final term.
A registered massage therapist works along side the students to share their knowledge and understanding of human anatomy and being in practice.
