Canadian Massage Therapy School Moves to New Facility

The students at a massage therapy school will soon move their studies to a brand new state-of-the-art clinic built by the school.

The new Centre for Health and Wellness is the latest addition at the Barrie Campus of the Georgian College in Ontario. The clinic, which will house massage therapy as well as other health or wellness programs, is 172,000 square feet and marks the massage therapy schools biggest building at the school to date.

A room for massage specific activities will be accessible to only the massage therapy students and their clients, according to a school publication.

Brian Dormer, Program Co-Coordinator at the massage therapy school program told the publication, “All students in the Massage Therapy program get hands-on experience in the clinic. This really prepares them for the field, as they will already have experience working with clients when they complete the program.”

The new facility comes complete with a new electronic client system and transfer capabilities between the departments connected to the massage therapy school. This technology can also apply to outside medical facilities that also participate in a patient’s care network.

If a person is treated at the new massage therapy school, the Georgian’s nursing program, or optical program, the patient information will be entered into a database accessible by other medical professionals who also treat the patient.

The new system is just as much about the student’s quality of education as patient care. While the intent of the new technology is to target the best outcome in patient care, it also provides a way for the students in any of the health programs to learn real-world skills in technology.

The massage therapy school is already networked with area medical facilities that treat special conditions and critical injuries. The electronic network allows the massage therapy school to implement streamlined communication with their partner organizations as well.
