Massage Therapy Students Receive Professional Sports Massage Experience from the Washington Redskins

Richmond, Va. – ECPI University’s School of Health Science, Medical Careers Institute (MCI), teamed up with the Washington Redskins to invite students to provide massage therapy to players throughout the team’s three week training camp in Richmond, Va.

“This opportunity provides real-life sports massage scenarios that many students want to explore,” MCI Massage Therapy Program Director Edward Simpson said. “Professional athletes are physically very different. Their muscles can be very well defined and tend to be larger. Students have the opportunity to make connections between their work and the body parts they are trying to address visually and kinesthetically.”

MCI students are working side-by-side with Redskins athletic trainers, physical therapist, and doctors to provide the highest quality of massage therapy to the entire team.

“We are honored MCI students are offering massage therapy to our athletes,” said Redskins Head Athletic Trainer, Larry Hess. “We are thrilled to assist students in achieving their professional goals by providing them a unique learning experience and the ability to work directly with our players.”

MCI’s educational program, as well as the partnership with the Redskins and the team’s top-notch medical staff, is designed specifically to facilitate professional growth and hands-on experience for their students.

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity,” said MCI student Candace Donald. “To work on world-class athletes with the kind of muscle mass and definition these players possess offers us an incredible learning opportunity.”
