Hands on training and experience

Warm welcome for Filipino Festival Temperatures dropped and 
 the rain kept falling, but that failed to keep hundreds of Calgarians from attending the Filipino Festival this month at Calgary’s Olympic Plaza! Our free massage therapy was offered in front of the main stage, giving us great exposure at the event.

MaKami had a fine day at the Filipino Festival.
