To add to the festivities, our popular two-year Massage Therapy class is back again September 18 in Calgary and September 20 in Edmonton.

Maxed out this summer! 
 MaKami Max has had a lot of fun this summer! He’s been popping up at events all over Alberta, like a political candidate on the campaign trail. Hmm.. Max for Mayor? Has a good ring… Shaking hands and hugging babies, he’s already got the resume for that! He made new friends at Sylvan Lake for Canada Day, Calgary Stampede, K-Days, Edmonton Heritage Festival and numerous charity events around the province!!

MaKami’s got a flare for eclipse viewing! A handful of staff and students at MaKami Calgary were lucky enough to get the coveted special glasses to watch the solar eclipse August 21. We have to wait until April 2024 to see the next solar eclipse. But there will be a lunar eclipse in January 2018! We’ll have to watch for it!

Old Strathcona Farmers’ Market - Serving massage therapy daily All summer long MaKami Edmonton students have been impressing those attending the Old Strathcona Farmers' Market. People stop by for their fresh fruit, and organic vegetables. They are dazzled by the hand crafted art, and second hand treasures. When they learn that MaKami is onsite with free massage therapy, it is the perfect buttercream frosting on the cake (you know the one we’re talking about!) Doesn’t get any better! MaKami students will be back on September 9, serving up more of their famous massage therapy.
