Livelihood and Cooperative Development Office (LCDO) head Aileen Sanchez proudly presented the first batch of graduates of the Basic Massage Therapy Course to Mayor James ‘Bong’ Gordon Jr. on October 20, 2008. The graduates finished a five-day training program held on October 13 to 17 at the Olongapo City Convention Center (OCCC).

Twenty one (21) men and fifty eight (58) women who graduated, totaling to seventy nine (79), comprised the first batch of graduates.

“We were overwhelmed by the response, ang daming gustong mag-train sa course na ito at hindi namin inaasahan na marami pala ang gustong mag-training ng basic massage therapy,” paliwanag ni Sanchez.

“Tatlo po ang dahilan ng ating mga graduates kung bakit nila kinuha ang training na ito. Una, for personal reasons, dahil may mga kamag-anak sila na kailangang i-massage therapy para hindi na sila kumuha ng massage therapist. Pangalawa, para magkaroon sila ng employment at panghuli, para magtayo sila ng sarili nilang business,” Sanchez said.

Courses discussed during the training include ‘Basic Reflexology’, ‘Seated Massage’, at ‘Foot Massage’. On October 20, 2008 the graduates performed a practicum where they performed a free 30-minute seated massage to willing customers.

The training was facilitated by Omar Zeus Beltran, a Certified Massage Therapist accredited by the Technical and Skills Development Authority (TESDA).

Because of the huge demand for the course, the LCDO has now opened the registration for the second batch of trainees for the October 27 to 30, 2008 training at the OCCC.
