Therapeutic Massage Information Sessions

A massage therapy information session will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 21 in Room CTC124 at Illinois Valley Community College and from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 28 at Ottawa Center, 321 W. Main St.

Representatives from the counseling center, admissions and records, the massage therapy program and recent graduates will be available to discuss what it is like to be a massage therapist, what a massage therapist does and the job market. The session will also cover admission requirements and courses students should take before applying to the program.

Instructor Cherie Monterastelli said, “If someone is seeking a personally satisfying career that creates close professional relationships, offers a flexible schedule and the ability to work independently, massage therapy might be for them.

“If anyone is interested in finding out more about massage therapy in general, we encourage them to attend one of the sessions, ask lots of questions and enjoy refreshments.”

Due to space limitations, prospective students are encouraged to RSVP with Monterastelli at (815) 224-0507 or cherie_monterastelli@ivcc.edu.
