Massage therapy certification program re-opens

Submitted By Robin Buckwalter

Fremont Adult School massage students will reopen the only student run massage clinic in Fremont. Interns will provide free massages to disabled veterans in the community including free home visits for profoundly challenged clients who cannot travel to the school clinic.

Remaining clinic hours will be available to the community. A donation of $10 is requested to cover some costs due budget reductions.

"This is a wonderful program for our students looking to gain experience with a wide variety of clients," said Dr. Robin Buckwalter, Director of the Massage Program at the Fremont Adult School. "With community outreach our interns will become exposed to many aspects of their new profession. Our goal is to graduate qualified massage therapists ready to create their livelihood throughout the diverse field of clinical massage."

The Clinical Massage Therapy Certification Course has decided to focus on the clinical aspects of massage, a certification program designed to place graduates in medical settings, large companies, and private or group practices. The cost of the course is $2,700, which is considerable lower than private school courses that run from $7,000 to $16,000.

For more information on the Clinical Massage Therapy Certification Course or Nonprofit Internship opportunities, please contact program director Dr. Robin Buckwalter, D.C. At (510) 656-1192 or email at
