Invitation to SunWest Teachers' Convention August 25, 2014
For a second year MTAS members have been invited to present to the Sun West Teachers' Association convention in Rosetown. Last year four local massage therapists did a presentation to over 30 teachers in two one-hour sessions. After introductions and a brief discussion about the benefits of massage therapy each participant received a 10 minute mini-massage.
This year rather than try to give each participant a taste of massage, the therapists will each discuss and demonstrate a particular massage modality such as stretching & self care, trigger point therapy, myofascial therapy, etc.
Also this year we are extending the invitation to MTAS members throughout the SunWest School division. The division includes schools in Davidson, Kenaston, Loreburn, Outlook, Lucky Lake, Dinsmore, Beechy, Kyle, Elrose, Harris, Rosetown, Kindersley, Eston, Plenty, Coleville & Marengo. If you are interested in participating contact Stan Hingston at 306-882-2220 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Saskatchewan teachers' benefit package includes $500 for massage therapy for themselves and each family member. (Hopefully that won't get changed in the current employment negotiations!) Teaching can be very stressful work and massage therapy could benefit them in so many ways. This is a great opportunity to connect the dots.
