In an effort to promote National Massage Therapy Awareness Week (October 19- 25), students in the Swedish Massage class at Minnesota School of Business-Blaine (MSB) explored the benefits of massage therapy and shared the information with the campus community. Massage therapy program students, Kim Christopherson, Kristine Moore, Moriah Prange, Lynelle White and Ashli Weller, created a poster and flyers to help educate our community on how massage therapy can positively impact their health and wellness.
“Students in Swedish Massage provided students and faculty information regarding the benefits of massage therapy. They also provided chair massage in an effort to help others experience massage,” Jennifer Youngs, massage therapy program chair at MSB-Blaine, said. “This was exciting for the students as it was their first time providing massage outside of the classroom since entering the massage program. They really enjoyed helping others learn the positive effects of massage and gaining experience in both skill and client communication.”
According to the American Massage Therapy Association, National Massage Therapy Awareness Week is part of “ongoing consumer outreach,” as well as “an opportunity for members to talk to their communities about the health benefits of massage and to promote their practice.”
MSB-Blaine is proud to celebrate National Massage Therapy Awareness Week. We look forward to more great things coming from our massage therapy program as the quarter progresses.
