Thank you for considering the profession of massage therapy and, specifically, The Massage Therapy College of Manitoba. By visiting this website you have taken the first step towards a life altering career choice, one that I have found both personally fascinating and professionally fulfilling for over 20 years. There are other choices in the city, Wellington Massage College and now Robertson College now offers a massage program as well. There are numerous choices so look around the site and then call us at 204-772-8999 for a tour and give us the opportunity to show you how we can best prepare you for your exciting career in massage therapy.
In 1986, I was living in New York City and pursuing a career in dance and theatre when I suffered a severe back injury; until then I had never experienced the benefits of massage therapy nor had I considered it more than a relaxing luxury. That was before I went for my first treatment. Not only did therapeutic massage help me fully recover, but it opened my eyes to the power of touch and the importance of balance, both mentally and physically, in one’s life. Needless to say, that first massage altered my career path, and sent me on a journey that has provided far more than an occupation.
I have always been thankful for the varying paths that life has sent me on, perhaps never more so than when the opportunity arose to purchase the college from our founder, Ruth Campbell. Ruth laid a strong foundation based on the pursuit of excellence and compassion for others. This philosophy continues to guide all our decisions today.
There are few things that matter more to me than this Winnipeg massage therapy college, its reputation and all our students, who have been its heart.
As you continue to read, you will learn more about what makes our college unique, however, while words can be a powerful influence, I feel our best qualities should only be experienced first hand. With this in mind, I warmly invite you to visit us for a tour, and perhaps the start of your own life altering journey.
Yours in health,
