    This 2.5 hr workshop will be facilitated by Andrew Terhoch, a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT), who has been providing services to individuals supported by St.Amant for a number of years now.

This invitation is being extended to all families connected to St.Amant services. The maximum number of participants for this session is 30. We will schedule future opportunities if we cannot accommodate all interested parties in this session.

    Please RSVP by June 8th if you plan to attend this session – RSVP to:
