Ridley-Lowell Offers Affordable Massage Clinic

Need a reasonably priced massage? Ridley-Lowell Business and Technical Institute’s Danbury campus is launching a student massage therapy clinic in December, providing a valuable learning opportunity for second semester students to practice relaxation techniques and third semester students to practice therapeutic work. Massage therapy sessions will be available to the public, by appointment, for greatly reduced fees. The student massage therapy clinic is designed to provide students with the opportunity to run their own clinical business, with RL faculty staff supervising. Students serve as both office managers and therapists in order to prepare themselves to enter their profession after passing the national certification exam and obtaining a State of Connecticut license. The goals of the clinic are to prepare students to pass certifications and licensure; to make massage affordable and accessible to the community; to offer a comfortable and safe environment in order to meet client needs; to support local spas and professional LMTs by promoting the benefits of massage, and to create a student scholarship fund to allow disadvantaged students to attend Ridley-Lowell’s massage program.

Massage therapy appointments will be available to the public for a $30 donation, with currently enrolled Ridley-Lowell students receiving a suggested discount rate of $15. Student practitioners may not receive tips. All sessions will be held by appointment on campus at 24 Shelter Rock Road, at South Street in Danbury. For more information about the massage therapy program, call 203.797.0551. Appointments may be booked online at Ridley.edu.
