Hometown Heroes: OSTM’s Public Servant Appreciation Month

At Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage, we know it is important to give back and add value to our community. Seek out opportunities to help people who act as the glue that holds our community together.

September is a great time to pay homage to those public servants who are the unsung heroes of our society. Firefighters, police officers, first responders, military personnel, educators, healthcare professionals, and community volunteers are a few examples of these unsung heroes. They work to keep our communities safe, healthy, and functional. At times, we can forget how much we rely on these everyday heroes.

Giving Back

While we may not be on the front lines with these people, we can use our own talents and skills to help them do their jobs better. At OSTM, we can do this through massage.

Public servant jobs are often either high stress or physically demanding. Sometimes they can be both. Through massage, we can help these hometown heroes unwind, relax, recover, and get ready emotionally and mentally to return to work. By giving them the benefits of massage, we can help them perform their duties more effectively.
