OURIMBAH, Australia - May 28, 2014 - PRLog -- The College has met all the requirements of the Massage Association of Australia and the Australian Regional Health Group (ARHG), to enable their qualified students to register as Health Fund Service Providers for Massage.

There are stringent rules put in place by the ARHG, and only certain learning institutions are accepted as having met all the criteria, which include the hours spent in clinical training.

For students Simone Bollen and Violeta Lucas this was very important when it came to choosing where to study their Diploma of Remedial Massage.

“I had been a VET Nurse for 6 years and felt the time was right for a change in career.  I’ll finish my Diploma in November and am very happy to know that I’ll be able to register as a Health Fund Service Provider.

“Learning massage makes you feel good.  The student clinic days allow us to access different ailments and people from all walks of life …. We learn to treat each person individually” Ms Bollen said.

For Violeta Lucas, the course has proven to be challenging, but also very rewarding.  Violeta, who is vision impaired, has gained extra support from the College whilst studying, and Vision Australia has also stepped in and provided her with an electronic magnifier, so she can read notes from class.

“I have such a passion for massage.  I love that I can help make people feel better and recover from the pain they have.

“The support from the College has been great and the staff and tutors are amazing.  To be studying such a thorough course in massage will certainly help my career as a massage therapist” Violeta said.

Student Massage clinics are being held on Tuesdays and Fridays throughout May and June.  Hour treatments are only $20 and are fully supervised.  To book a massage, call the College on 0410 067 703.
