Weekly massage therapy sessions help relieve stress-related pain.
Edmonton, AB (Vocus/PRWEB ) September 3, 2009 -- Massage therapy is known for its ability to heal, but it can often be a costly expense that many cannot justify. Now, residents in both Edmonton and Calgary can look to CDI College, leaders in health care career training, for the care they need.
Students of the Massage Therapy programs in Edmonton North and Calgary North run free massage therapy clinics that are open to the public. Each free session is an hour-long, and the clinic is open several days during the week.
"We can hold up to 28 people per evening, but clients need to book their appointment in advance," says Edmonton North Campus Director, Herb Foster. "While the clinics are free, clients are welcome to make a donation, which all go to Stollery Children's Hospital."
Massage therapy is used to treat a variety of ailments including tight necks, bad shoulders, hips, back and chronic conditions. Students of the CDI Massage Therapy programs learn techniques like hydrotherapy, Swedish massage and injury prevention which help them to treat each new clinic patient effectively. Massage therapy treatments are currently not covered by public health care in Canada, so the Alberta campuses expect a healthy reception to their initiative.
To participate in the free massage clinics at CDI College, call 780.478.7900 in Edmonton or 403.266.0830 in Calgary.
