Apollo College Helps Holiday Shoppers Give a Gift That’s “Kneaded”

TUCSON, Ariz. – December 12, 2007 - Shoppers looking for a truly personal gift to give this holiday season will find one that makes their recipients want to unwrap – the gift of massage! Apollo College’s Massage Therapy Clinic makes it easy and affordable with Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage gift certificates available at deeply discounted prices.

Through Dec. 20, Apollo’s Tucson Massage Clinic will have a “buy one massage-get one free” holiday special. Gift certificates are also available for a 50-minute Swedish massage ($25).

“Massage helps reduce muscle tension and stress, and soothes the nervous system – symptoms we see a lot this time of year,” says Richard Benedetto, Dean of Education. “As a preventive approach to health, massage can keep the body, mind and spirit in balance.”

The Apollo College Massage Therapy Clinic offers many massage modalities at deeply discounted prices.  Students who have completed eight months of instruction perform all massages and treatments. The Tucson clinic offers four private massage rooms in a relaxing spa-like atmosphere.

Apollo College’s Massage Therapy Clinic is open Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m., to 9:00 p.m. To book an appointment or purchase gift certificates, call (520) 888-5885.

Every year, Massage Therapy attracts more and more attention for the many potential health benefits it offers. As the popularity of massage treatment increases, so does the demand for qualified Massage Therapists. The Bureau of Labor Statistics states that employment of Massage Therapists is expected to grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2012, as the health services industry continues to expand and diversify.

Apollo College helps prepare fully trained therapists to take advantage of the growing career opportunities available to graduates. The mission of the program is to prepare serious bodywork practitioners who offer a safe, positive, healing touch. Graduates of the Apollo program may practice their profession in a wide variety of settings – from medical clinics and hospitals to resorts, spas and cruise ships.
