WAYNE – The class and staff of Serenity School of Massage Therapy welcomed in the community during a weekly Friday morning Chamber Coffee event.
Serenity School of Massage Therapy is located at 120 West Second Street Suite #3 in the Mid City Plaza.
Holly Doring is in her 10th year in the massage business as she is the owner and lead teacher of the school. She really likes the set up at their new location as they begin their second year.
“It’s enough space we can move around without really being on top of each other,” said Doring. “The students have had individual clinic rooms, so they don’t have to share the clinic rooms which is kind of nice. The more students we get, the more likely they’re going be overlapping. Now, they can kind of just set their hours for clinic and they can come and go when they want to.”
There are four massage rooms, a classroom, a break room and front room.
Along with the treats, this year’s two students were introduced as Tiffany is from Wisner and Marlene travels from Osmond
Doring explains Nebraska requires 1,000 hours for massage therapy.
“It’s 700 classroom hours and 300 clinical hours,” Doring added. “It’s a one-year program, so we get it all done in a year including all the clinics. If you come in for a massage, you can come in for a student massage. Those are $25 for one hour.”
The student massages last from January – July as the class will graduate in August. The cost to get a massage with Holly is $45 an hour.
With the health district in phase four of the Directed Health Measure (DHM), this means masks are recommended but not required for a massage. The practitioner will keep their mask on for safety purposes especially when working around the neck and shoulder area.
