  1. I’m a 3rd term (in the 6 term plan) massage student at Lane. How can I volunteer?

  2. It’s nice to see the volunteer hours and agencies listed here! It kind of brings it all full circle as to why we are getting this training. Very nice.

  3. Hi Rachel :)
    These students all volunteered through our Community Student Clinic class, which is required late in the program. After you’ve completed Massage 3, Laws & Ethics, Communication from the Heart, and basic sciences, and you are in one of your final terms, you will have this same opportunity! It’s a wonderfully fulfilling way to connect with the community and provide touch to many that very much need it!

  4. Thanks for your comments, Therese! I agree that it’s a nice idea to start posting these – we’re working on ways to make this site more dynamic. :)

  5. Recently, my classmate Karl and I went to Greenhill Humane Society and gave chair massage to 16 of their staff. It was a great morning for all! Those folks work so hard everyday to find homes for and care for all the wonderful animals!
    Thanks Karl, it was nice working with you. Therese
