RCC Now Accepting Massage Therapy Appointments
Now is the time to get a therapeutic massage at Robeson Community College. The Massage Therapy Department at RCC is now accepting appointments for 1-hour sessions. Sessions are available on Mondays and Thursdays and cost $20 per 1-hour session. Individuals can also book an hour session on Saturday, May 22 or Saturday, June 12.
There are several reasons to get a massage, including many health benefits such as:
- Reduces stress and increases relaxation
- Reduces pain, muscle soreness, and tension
- Improves circulation, energy, and alertness
- Lowers heart rate and blood pressure
- Improved immune function
Massage Therapy has also proven beneficial for helping with the long-term effects of those who have recovered from COVID-19, according to a study by John Hopkins University. It is also beneficial for those who suffer from other chronic illnesses such as cancer, high blood pressure, lower back pain, insomnia, carpel tunnel, arthritis, depression, and more.
Massages are performed by RCC students and count towards their requirements for completion of the massage therapy program. The massage labs are located at the ComTech Campus, 124 Livermore Drive in Pembroke, NC. To book an appointment, patrons can visit this link: https://tinyurl.com/RCC-Massage-Appt.
