Massage Students Out and About in the Community

Spring has come to the Ashland Institute of Massage and it is time to emerge! Throughout the fall and winter months our massage students have been studying hard, learning a multitude of hands-on skills, developing increased awareness and sensitivity, and practicing, practicing, practicing… Now it is time to blossom! Springtime finds the AIM massage students and staff putting all-hands-on-backs in the community!

Are you planning to do the Pear Blossom Run this year? Look for the massage tents above the finish line and come soothe your tired muscles with a free post-race massage!

Are you an SOU student? Look for our students offering stress relief during Love Your Body week and at the end-of-term Relaxation Extravaganza.

Ashland High School seniors: find us at the AHS Senior All Night Party in May as we help you celebrate the Class of 2014.

At Ashland’s favorite community event, First Fridays, you will find AIM students and graduates set up in front of Koko’s Bento/Ashland Hardware on “A” Street. Who can pass up a free chair massage to accompany art, music and wine tasting?!

This year once again finds us bringing our talented students to offer stress relief to the staff at the Behavioral Health Unit at RVMC and this year to the employees of Pepsi Co. for Health Day.

Ashland Institute of Massage Student Clinic is our largest community outreach event of the season, this year spanning 20 days and including 520 massages. Due to extreme popularity, we are already fully booked for this year but please call if you would like to be added to our mailing list for the next round of student clinics: 541-482-5134.

If all this talk of massage has succeeded in enticing your sensory receptors, consider visiting AIM’s Chrysalis Massage Clinic. Our professional massage therapists, all “homegrown” and trained at AIM, offer high quality therapeutic or relaxation sessions year-round. One or (better yet!) one-and-a-half hour sessions are available seven days a week. We offer community-friendly prices including senior and package discounts. Call 541-482-5134 for an appointment or book online at chrysalismassageclinic.com.

One last note: we are continuing to accept nominations for our monthly free massage give-away: Massage in Need. If you know someone in need of quality bodywork but unable to afford it, please call 541-482-5134 to nominate them for our monthly drawing.

We hope to meet you Out and About this spring. If you spy the yellow and red Massage Team shirts, come say hello and offer your back. I guarantee that you will be happy you did!
