Annual Massage Therapy Program Clinic Opens

Piedmont Technical College's massage therapy program will be offering its annual massage clinic as part of the training for its students beginning Jan. 23. The clinic, located at the PTC annex building on North Emerald Road, will be open to the public as follows:

  • Tuesdays from 12:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m., with appointment times at 12:45 p.m. and 2 p.m.
  • Wednesdays 11 a.m.-3:30 p.m., with appointment times at 11:15 a.m., 12:45 p.m., and 2 p.m.
  • Thursdays from 1 p.m.-3 p.m. with appointment times at 1 p.m. and 2:00 p.m.

A one-hour Swedish, deep tissue, neuromuscular or prenatal massage will be $20 for the general public.

Massage therapy is one of the fastest growing professions in the health care field. There is an ever increasing acceptance of massage as a holistic approach to health care and health maintenance. Many integrate into chiropractic offices, physical therapy clinics, medical practice settings, hospitals, and rehabilitation facilities; in addition to other professional environments, due to its extreme flexible portability.

One of the requirements of the massage therapy program at Piedmont Technical College is that students must complete 40 hours of class and lab time in areas of study that include a comprehensive education in anatomy and physiology, pathology, basic pharmacology, kinesiology, exercise physiology and rehabilitation. Students are also required to perform an additional 50 hours of real-world experience on their own. To this end, the massage therapy program provides a massage clinic beginning in January each year.

During the summer clinic, reflexology is also performed. Doctor’s notes are required for questionable chronic medical conditions based on medical history. This is necessary because client safety is primary in effective therapeutic service delivery. 

Gift certificates are also available for purchase at the clinic. To schedule an appointment, call (864) 941-8785. For more information on the massage therapy program, visit www.ptc.edu/massage.
