Creative Massage Externship Hours

At massage schools that don't include a student clinic, students sometimes have to be creative about getting in their externship or internship hours of massage practice.

This Rhode Island massage student, Alda Medeiros, volunteered at a bike-a-thon that raised money for cancer research and treatment.

Ms. Medeiros and her colleagues worked until the last rider was massaged. She estimated that in the hours she worked, 1 to 9 p.m., she massaged approximately 30 people.

"You were making that person feel good ... We're all in this together. What's 10 more minutes?"

About the bike-a-thon's good cause: the mission of the Pan-Massachussetts Challenge is to raise money for life-saving cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through its Jimmy Fund.
