Helping Our Students During Difficult Times
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected many people in many ways. When businesses and schools began closing to slow the spread, we began planning ways to help our students not only to continue learning, but also to provide as many necessities as possible.
Many of our students rely on part-time jobs in the restaurant industry and other industries forced to close during the pandemic. As we all know, loss of income can be very scary. We all appreciate government programs put in place to help those financially affected by COVID-19, but we also know the waiting period was compounded by the large number of unemployment applications and CARES applications. CARES is the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act to help fund public education.
We knew many of our students would be fine during the waiting period since they were able to move in with parents or relatives, but there were a number who did not have that option. We decided to have several food drives to help students in need. Our staff and owners donated food and every student that needed help was taken care of.

In 2005, it’s estimated that massage therapy may have made for a $6 billion industry. Since then, it has grown considerably. According to researchers and data from the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA), massage is now estimated to be a $16 billion per year industry here in the United States alone. With around 350,000 massage therapists and students nationwide, roughly one in one hundred people is engaged in some way in the massage industry. Revenue and job growth has shifted as well. Over the past five years, revenue generated by alternative and complementary health practitioners (including massage therapist) increased by around 4%, while employment numbers went up by 3.3%. Consumer survey data indicates that as many as 59.5 million adult Americans — roughly 24% of the population here in the United States — got at least one massage. It’s clear that the massage industry is growing. Massage is gaining popularity amongst Americans, with an increasing number of people seeking out massage for a variety of reasons. At the same time, the number of massage therapists is inching upward from year to year, even as the industry grows and revenue increases.
