Blind Wichita Student

Wichita, KS – Therapeutic Massage is a field that promotes relaxation and well-being. People who go into the field are drawn to it for different reasons. Many want to help people feel better. Some have seen the positive results massage has had on friends and loved ones who have experienced pain, while others feel a deep, spiritual connection to the art of massage.
That spiritual connection is what drew Emily Schlenker into studying Therapeutic Massage at Heritage College in Wichita. Emily, who has been blind since birth, felt that she could turn her handicap into a positive.
"I've relied on my sense of touch my whole life," said Emily, who is 28 years old and grew up in Wichita. "I think it gives me an advantage going into massage." Full Story
