Massage college seeks volunteers

The Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy is looking for volunteers

The Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy is on the search for substitutes for some of their outreach programs.

Volunteer participants will receive massage treatments by a senior-level student in the two-year massage diploma program at the downtown Vernon campus.

“We currently need substitutes for our neurologic, systemic, cancer, scar, maternity and pediatric outreaches,” said Carissa Kendal, outreach co-ordinator.

The students work in small groups with a supervisor to give them hands-on learning from professionals.

OVCMT have worked with the Vernon and Kelowna communities at addiction rehabilitation sites, the Okanagan Indian Band and retirement facilities.
