Aveda Institutes Power of Touch Award

Aveda Institutes Power of Touch Award

We are pleased to announce that our very own Jeffrey (Massage Therapy Instructor), Collin, Melanie and Taylor (IBW Massage Students) were recipients of the 2017 Power of Touch Award. The Aveda Institutes Power of Touch Award was created to acknowledge our Massage Students and Educators living the Aveda Mission in their local communities.  Students had the opportunity to engage in a community program in a touch-deprived area and share their experience in a self-created video.

Jeff, Collin, Melanie and Taylor chose to offer chair and hand massages at the Hope House on Mother’s Day. The Hope House is a non-profit emergency homeless shelter and rapid rehousing facility as well as a true community center located in the near south side of Milwaukee.

To celebrate, all four will be flown to Minneapolis to participate in a Myoskeletal Alignment Workshop with Paul Kelly on August 6 & 7 as guests of Aveda Institute Development. Congratulations Jeff, Collin, Melanie and Taylor!
