What’s this got to do with stress?

Drop in for a free 10-minute Shiatsu Massage to get the stress out of our shoulders. While you’re at it, talk to reps from Artists’ Health Alliance and The Al & Malka Green Artists’ Health Centre. Both organizations will be on hand to talk artists’ health, share resources and answer your questions about who we are and what we do.

Massages are on a first-come, first-serve basis and cannot be booked in advance. Registration is not available for this event. To receive an event reminder, join our e-newsletter mailing list or RSVP on facebook.
