Specifically, Raccoon Valley Massage Centre is a non-profit subsidiary of Raccoon Valley Centre for the Arts. We offer the art of massage as a personal-care therapeutic service, with a recommended/suggested donation price. All tips are considered donations, and as such, you can help the Massage Centre in its efforts to provide massage care for the underserved Iowans that need therapeutic care due to medically diagnosed necessities, and/or circumstances of financial need. Through your generosity, RVMC will be able to provide in-home massage care to Iowans in-need of therapeutic massage services, such as: those who have been medically-diagnosed with chronic or debilitating conditions (like ALS, or Cancer); the Elderly, Low-Income persons/families, and/or those who have suffered life-altering trauma, (such as: Veterans with PTSD; Victims of Domestic-Abuse, Sex-Trafficking, or Traumatic Injury). The William D Sturdevant Memorial Art Lyceum, The Ballet Training Centre, and Artistic Endeavors Unlimited are also subsidiaries of RVCA.
