Each year, there are a number of community organizations looking for RMT's to help them provide massage therapy for wellness days, post-event massage for sporting events, walks, runs, and a host of other great opportunities.

Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community, earn education credits, reach potential new clients and for that great feeling you get when you give back! Check back often to see who needs your help...


WHERE: Health Sciences Centre 820 Sherbrook St, Winnipeg
WHEN: Wednesdays (Ongoing)

Our friends at the Health Sciences Centre Neonatal Intensive Care Unit are currently looking for a volunteer massage therapist to do 20-minute head and shoulder massages for parents experiencing the stress of having a baby in NICU.

A volunteer is needed for 3 hours on Wednesday afternoons, once a month. HSC will cover the cost of parking during volunteer sessions. The volunteer would be responsible for a Criminal Record Check (you will be reimbursed after 60 hrs of volunteer time). The volunteer will also need to bring a massage chair or table (MTAM has some available for members to borrow if needed). Please contact Karen Netzel directly at knetzel@hsc.mb.ca if you have any questions.
