TCC’s Moody Health Center Partners With San Jacinto College Massage Therapy Program
UPDATE (1/24/13): SJC Massage Therapy will be back at MHC for the spring term, beginning Jan. 29 and tentatively running through April.
PASADENA, Texas – Texas Chiropractic College’s Moody Health Center (MHC) is excited to announce a new partnership with San Jacinto College’s Massage Therapy Program (MTP), which provides clinical and office space in the MHC for qualified MTP students participating in the required internship.
The San Jacinto College students will be providing 50-minute massage therapy sessions at MHC on Wednesday and Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings for just $20, or $10 for TCC and San Jac students. To schedule an appointment, please call 281-998-5731 or visit online.
“This is an exciting opportunity for Texas Chiropractic College and the Moody Health Center to provide even more quality health care options for the surrounding community while continuing to strengthen our partnership with San Jacinto College,” said Dr. Barry Wiese, TCC Dean of Clinics. “We are looking forward to growing this partnership and the opportunities it provides for our chiropractic interns to interact with the massage therapy interns. Together, they will better learn how to partner as professionals to provide integrative care for their patients.”
The Moody Health Center is an outpatient care facility and represents the culmination of the accredited Doctor of Chiropractic Program at Texas Chiropractic College. Student interns, working closely with licensed attending clinicians, treat patients from the general public with complementary therapies.
San Jacinto College’s massage therapy program is an accredited program of therapeutic massage training. Graduates can complete the requirements for licensure in as little as two semesters and can be licensed and working in less than one year. As a part of the program, students will complete a 50-hour hands-on internship required by the state of Texas.
“Beginning Fall 2012, San Jacinto College students enrolled in the supervised clinical Massage Therapy Internship program will have the opportunity to work alongside Texas Chiropractic College students at the Moody Health Center, a professional outpatient care facility located on TCC’s campus in Pasadena, Texas” noted Dr. Barbara M. Hanson, Vice President for Learning at San Jacinto College-Central. “The Massage Therapy Internship program is a close approximation of the actual workplace experience of a licensed massage therapist. The opportunities provided by our educational partnership benefit our students and our community.”
The Moody Health Center is located at 5917 Spencer Highway in Pasadena, Texas, and is open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.- 6 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m.- 1 p.m. The MHC may be contacted at 281-487-1501 or .
