MOBILE MASSAGE TEAM (MMT) – HOW WE WORK
The Mobile Massage Team or MMT is an initiative by SAVH to facilitate the provision of massage services (Head & Shoulder Massage, Foot Reflexology and Full Body Non-Oil Massage) by a group of qualified, visually-handicapped masseurs at SAVH or external venues such as schools, corporate offices as well as at nationally organised events.
Over the years, MMT has grown in popularity, particularly with corporate organisations, hotels and resorts, government agencies and educational institutions, hospitals. We are glad to be continuously serving our regular and loyal customers and happy to be having more new customers and organisations and individuals engaging MMT for ad-hoc events.
MMT has gained higher visibility and prominence and the blind masseurs have proven themselves to possess the professional skills.
Chances of walk-in customers who could not be served by blind masseurs at SAVH has increased in recent years as more people are aware of the services provided by our professionally trained masseurs and the result of more deployment of masseurs to organisations which requested for external engagements.
As you support SAVH and this MMT initiative, you are also contributing your share towards a more inclusive society, as the blind masseurs put into practice the acquired skills to remain employable, earn their living, gain self-reliance and independence and live with dignity!
