VCMT Students will go out into the surrounding community to different organizations where they will build their practical skills through outreach experiences

Weekly Student Massage

The basics:

VCMT will send 4-6 student massage interns and 1 Registered Massage Therapist supervisor

Outreach shifts run between 1:00pm-6:00pm on weekdays

Treatment times and durations can vary. Three, 60-minute treatments are most common (1:30pm-2:30pm, 2:45pm-3:45pm, 4:00pm-5:00pm) – VCMT semesters run January-April, May-August, and September-December

What’s needed:

VCMT is located in downtown Vancouver, outreach hosts will have to be in close enough proximity to be reached by public transit within 45 minutes

Outreach hosts will need to provide private rooms or one space (like a boardroom) large enough for 4-6 massage tables  *if a private space is not available, treatments can be modified accordingly, ex: clothing-on treatment

Outreach hosts have a space to store packed massage tables between weekly treatment days

Outreach hosts have a minimum of 12 people interested and available to receive weekly massage treatments (friends and family are welcome)
