July 31, 2013 — The California Academy for the Healing Arts in Costa Mesa, Calif., was awarded a $1,000 Helping Hands school grant package at the ONE Concept School Rally held July 23 at Earthlite headquarters in San Diego County. The Helping Hands grant program, developed by Biotone and Biofreeze, supports the massage therapy profession through students and school grants.
ONE Concept, the school rally organizer, partnered with Biofreeze and Biotone to promote the grant program during the conference. Four $500 Helping Hands student grants will also be awarded in partnership at the September ONE Concept American Massage Conference in San Diego.
Ariel Hubbard accepted the grant, $500 cash plus a $500 product package, for her winning school.
“We are very grateful to Biotone and Biofreeze for their support of our profession, and are very fortunate to have won this Helping Hands Gifts for Growth grant,” stated Hubbard, chancellor, California Academy for the Healing Arts and CEO, Hubbard Education Group. “As we celebrate our tenth anniversary, this grant will assist our massage and energy work students to pursue their educational experience in greater depth. The grant helps us bring more product and equipment into our classroom for use by our students. Our students attended the American Massage Conference last year and are looking forward to it this year. We all had a wonderful experience with their classes and networking events.”
