Massage Therapy Students complete Specialty Clinic aimed at mental illness recovery


Student therapists form Sutherland & Chan, School of Massage Therapy  compiled a report after the completion of a Specialty Clinic, they offered to residents of George Herman House. 


Throughout the internship, emphasis during each treatment was dedicated to each patient’s mental & emotional well being, as apposed to just the Women's musculoskeletal impairments.





Following the program, students concluded that they not only gained massage experience but also gained a deeper understanding and respect for individuals who are working through mental and emotional turmoil.


A lesson learned,  is that although mental health struggles can be hidden, emotional trauma,  often manifests as pain. 




“even the softest touch can make a big difference to a patient who is emotionally hurt.”
