San Francisco Students Provide Therapeutic Massage for Seniors
Here in San Francisco students brought health and relaxation to the senior community. As part of our Community Services program, students provided chair massage for residents and staff of Martin Luther Tower, a residence facility that provides affordable, independent living for seniors in the heart of San Francisco.
After a warm welcome from the residents, our NHI students set up shop and worked nonstop! We were amazed at the positive response. Highlights of the event were chatting with the residents, giving information about NHI, and providing massage for Martin Luther Tower’s oldest resident who is 102 years old.
The event was extremely well-received; One of the residents even happened to be an NHI grad from 1990! We were impressed that every client was able to use the massage chair and welcomed the experience. This was a great way for students to gain experience working with an older population.
Our students look forward to more opportunities like this to give back to the community while honing their massage therapy techniques and broadening their experience. If you have an idea for a special event you would like our students to take part in, feel free to get in touch with us at http://www.nhi.edu/employers/special_events/
