CNCC massage program’s offer runs through end of the month
April 23, 2012
Time is running out to take advantage of a great deal that will help you relax and assist in the education of someone learning a trade.
The massage therapy program of Colorado Northwestern Community College's Craig campus, 2801 W. Ninth St., will continue its offer of massage sessions through May 1, after which point the students enrolled for the spring semester will be moving on.
At a rate of $25 per hour, customers can get an affordable session while helping students perfect their craft.
Working with paying clients in a classroom environment out of the campus's career technical building allows the beginning massage practitioners to get a feel for how a career in the field will be.
Students of the program are employed at numerous Craig locations and many run their own businesses based on the healing of the body.
They're in good hands with program director and instructor Cammi Balleck, whose qualifications include a doctorate in naturopathic health, certification as a nutritionist, and as a massage therapist, among other distinctions.
Working with CNCC students since 2007, she is also the author of the book "Making Happy Happen: Secrets to Being on Cloud Nine Every Day."

Working for auto dealer a good fit for Craig native
A decade ago, Clay Trevenen was working primarily in a business that provided the go for the automobiles of Craig.
These days, he's still helping the people of Northwest Colorado with a way to get on the road, just from a different perspective.
As a sales associate for Craig Ford, 801 W. Victory Way, Trevenen gets to see a new side of the world on wheels, one where he is able to communicate more with the folks who come through the door.
He started in the position at the beginning of March, though his experience working with a car-related industry goes back to his days working with family business Trevenen Oil, which now functions under Simons Petroleum.
"I always grew up and had been around the fuel business, but this is a new enterprise for me here," he said.
"This is a great job just to be able to hang out and talk about cars with people, which is a dream for a lot of guys."
Trevenen said he saw the job as a way to interface with community members more, an important facet of any local business.
"In my family business, I was behind the scenes, doing paperwork, driving a truck and my brother was mostly responsible for the sales end of it," he said.
"It's definitely nice to be able to just catch up with people, make a deal with them, get everybody the vehicle they want."
