Eye on Alumni: Spencer
For Spencer, taking the the Advanced Clinical Massage Therapy program at MaKami College was a natural fit.
“I chose massage therapy because I was always in sports and the whole aspect of treating athletes brought my attention to massage therapy,” says Spencer. “I knew how important getting my 2,200 hours was. Plus I wanted to keep going right after first year to second year to stay fresh and on top of my game.”
And Spencer did just that. After graduating this spring he got a job with Active Life Centre in St. Albert in August. Active Life Centre focuses on physiotherapy and sports massage.
“I love my job! I couldn’t ask for a better place to work and people to work for. I might be going to Brazil for the Canadian women’s soccer team and to Sochi, Russia for the Olympics to help with the Canadian woman’s hockey team!”
He says he loves the atmosphere of working in a massage therapy clinic. “I like helping others feel better and help them achieve goals they have set and you also set as a therapist. Trust me, when you see the smile or the get the feeling that you made a client feel better of just help them out a little bit in a treatment, that’s what it’s all about!”
