Pueblo, Colorado – IntelliTec College’s Massage Therapy program will host the 2nd annual “Massage in the Park” event on Thursday, July 17th. IntelliTec invites the Pueblo community to come out and reap the various benefits of massage therapy while helping to celebrate National “EveryBody Deserves a Massage” Week.
According to IntelliTec’s Massage Therapy Program Supervisor Kristina Arellano, “Massage in The Park is an event that is designed to give everyone the opportunity to experience massage therapy, learn the benefits of receiving massage and (is) a way to give back to our wonderful community.”
This Thursday, from 9:00am to 2:00pm, approximately 15-20 massage therapists will be in Pueblo’s City Park offering a combination of tables and chairs for 10 to 15 minute massage treatments, free of charge. This will be a drop-in event where anyone from the public can come and receive a massage. The Massage Therapy students participating in the event are fully trained on the types of massages they will be performing and are excited to share with the community what they have learned.
There will also be activities set up for kids to participate in while their parents are receiving massages. They can enjoy stretching demonstrations, playing anatomical Simon Says, putting together a skeleton puzzle, coloring activities and more. Prizes, including IntelliTec swag and gift certificates for the IntelliTec massage clinic will also be awarded and water and product samples will be available for all participants.
Every year massage therapists across the nation lend their services to raise awareness of the benefits of massage therapies. Arellano explains what Massage week means to her, saying, “Massage week is an opportunity to get involved in the community and really educate them on the benefits of massage therapy, answer any questions they may have regarding massage therapy and also share my passion for what I do. It is a great way to also thank those who support massage therapy from clients to businesses, by offering special services or discounts.”
In honor of “Everybody Deserves a Massage” Week, the student massage clinic is running a special for the entire month of July. If a client purchases a treatment, they can receive a voucher for a free add-on service. The IntelliTec College Massage Clinic is open Monday-Thursday from 10:00-6:00 and Friday from 12:00-6:00. Arellano exclaims, “if they can’t make it down to the park on the 17th they can still get a massage for a great price!!”
