Holly Doring was the speaker at our club meeting on October 2.  Holly is mother of 4 children and also a professional massage therapist.  She received her training in South Sioux City in 2011.  After 9 1/2 months of paperwork, she has received a license to start her own massage school which is called Serenity School of Massage Therapy located at 120 W. 2nd St. in Wayne.  She now has two students who will undergo 1000 hours of school (4 hours daily) that includes 320 clinical hours.  They will need to pass the state boards after schooling to practice.  She hopes to work up to 12 students at a time, but for now 7 or 8 will be a comfortable size.  She continues to do private practice as well.  Serenity students qualify for trade school financial aid.  A large part of massage is to manage and/or alleviate pain often working with chiropractors to relax muscles so they can better manipulate the patients back etc.
