They say that giving is better than receiving, and for five ICDC College massage therapist graduates who work at the Massage Company of Brentwood, nothing could be truer. With a working environment that includes support and care from each other, employees at Massage Company of Brentwood find the relief that most people find in them.
Jackie Aguilar, Joshua Weiss and Tineka Gradford are just a few ICDC College graduates who work at the Massage Company. Together they make a diverse and compassionate team that gives patients the care their bodies crave – a healing touch.
Sheila Castro – the owner of the Massage Company of Brentwood and a massage therapist herself – not only appreciates the combination of skills her ICDC College graduates bring to the massage table, but also promotes that they teach each other what they know.
“What’s cool about working here, besides getting to help people feel better, is that we get to learn from each other. Sheila shows us new techniques and sometimes we’ll show her what we know too,” says ICDC College alum Joshua Weiss.
The Massage Company offers a multitude of different kinds of massages ranging from Swedish to Deep Tissue to Prenatal treatments. Therapists accept walk-ins, appointments, full hour or half-hour treatments, customized differently for each patient. Surely this inviting energy comes from the positivity and synergy this group has with one another.
“I love working here because my boss is very nice and understanding of our situations in life. Plus the environment around here is very positive and caring,” says ICDC College graduate Jackie Aguilar.
Likewise, Sheila Castro, feels that ICDC College’s well-prepared graduates give her the stress relief she needs to run a successful business.
“ICDC College graduates understand the business and exhibit patience,” says Castro. “We are a team of smooth, easy going people who are goal-oriented and self-motivated.” But Castro’s enthusiasm for ICDC College didn’t end there. “Another reason I like hiring more ICDC graduates is because of the people at the Job Placement Department. They are friendly and helpful. They’ll go out of their way to help you find a candidate,” Castro adds.
With such positive and supportive interest in one another, the Massage Company of Brentwood is a perfect environment to foster wellness and treatment for patients and employees alike. But for therapists like Weiss and Aguilar, it all started at ICDC College, where they learned to believe in themselves again and gain the skills that would bring them to a place they love working.
