Peterborough ON – (November 25, 2016) â€“ With its focus on applied learning opportunities for students, Fleming College will officially open the new Spa + Clinic at Sutherland Campus on Monday, Nov. 28.
Operated by students in the Massage Therapy and Esthetician programs (and supervised by faculty), the Spa + Clinic at Fleming College offers therapeutic treatments and a full range of esthetic services to both the college community and the public.
Flemingâ€™s School of Health and Wellness created the Spa + Clinic with the move of the Esthetician program to Sutherland Campus this fall. While the massage therapy clinic has been part of the campus for a number of years, it underwent renovations in summer 2016. The spa was developed adjacent to the clinic to co-locate the services in the A wing of the building. The new space is just over 4,400 square feet.
â€śThe relocation of the Esthetician program to Peterborough offered an opportunity to create seamless therapeutic and wellness services at our Sutherland Campus,â€ť said Carol Kelsey, Dean of the School of Health and Wellness. â€śThe Spa + Clinic at Fleming College emulates a real practice environment, providing valuable applied learning experiences. The students can hone their business and soft skills as well as professionalism, thereby enhancing their employability.â€ť
The opening takes place at 3:15 p.m. on Nov. 28 in the main foyer of Sutherland Campus with tours of the Spa + Clinic available to the public. Students will be demonstrating massage techniques and spa treatments during the opening.
Currently, students are providing massage treatments to the public while spa services will start in the new year.
The Spa + Clinic at Fleming College uses only top professional products for its full range of services. As part of the opening, the Spa + Clinic is offering a special incentive â€“ book a full-service spa treatment in January and receive a free mini manicure.
