Intro Weekend Workshop Oct 18-20, 2014. Photo taken by Tia Ramos.

This photo was taken on the last day of the weekend workshop. Can you tell these students had a great time?  They absolutely did!

These students were such an enthusiastic group of learners.  Not only did they succeed in learning about relaxation massage, they also made new friends in the workshop and created a sense of community in class. They got a chance to visit a live Manual Skills 100 class in action (Thank you Full Time Class Lokahi for showing them how Tapotement is done ).   By watching other students in the program, this group mastered the technique – Tapotement, which is a rhythmic percussive technique.  The sound of their drumming and chopping was like a harmonious drumming session.  This group learned about the general principles of massage and how to use essential communication when giving a massage.  Each and every one of them also experienced receiving a massage all weekend!   They were also happy to discover the many job opportunities available for VCMT graduates.  You will be seeing these friendly faces this coming January 2015 for the full time and part time programs. Please make sure to say hi!

A special thanks to Cosmina Irimie, Taylor Odobas, and recent VCMT graduate, from Ohana class,  Grant Smith for assisting and sharing their journey in the program.  Their stories were insightful and heartwarming.  A special thanks to our guest speaker/and VCMT owner Levi Giesbrecht who shared his mandate and vision for the school with the learners.
