The Introductory Workshop is designed for applicants and potential applicants to Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy, or for applicants planning to attend the programs available at other professional massage therapy colleges in B.C. The content of the Introductory Workshop focuses on an introduction to the practical and professional aspects of the programs available at OVCMT. It is an opportunity for hands-on experience intended to support the applicant in his/her decision making process when considering education for a “practically based” career. It is also an opportunity for applicants to meet potential classmates.
Upcoming Introductory workshop dates:

Reflections on the Introductory Workshop: I hope you enjoyed the Introductory Workshop at OVCMT. This weekend is such a great opportunity for you to discover what the massage therapy program is all about. If you choose to carry on you will, in all sincerity, enter one of the most fun and challenging phases of your life. You will push yourself mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually but as each day passes you will feel yourself becoming stronger and getting closer to the place that you want to be, closer to who you want to be. The friends you make become family and your teachers become mentors. You will be encased in your experience and in the process. This is a program that you have to do for yourself, not your parents, friends or partners. You will find yourself studying late into the night and awaking early to practice, but you will also find that the growth you experience in the program is intense and beautiful - you will be amazed at the person you are in the end. Take care of yourself, and know that with hard work, focus and determination, you will have an amazing two years! Andrea Jones 2008 OVCMT Graduate
