An Urut massage training center has been opened by the Fiji National Council for Disabled Persons in Labasa.
Opening the center this morning FNCDP Executive Director Kaushilya Devi says this will be the first of two training centers in Fiji.
The center is part of an action plan by officers from the FNCDP following a massage training in Bali, Indonesia.
Urut is a traditional Malay massage which involves soft-tissue manipulation of the whole body to alleviate different types of conditions and ailments.
The new facility will be used to train persons living with disabilities on how to perform an Urut massage.
Devi says there are a lot of people going for massage therapy so we have given the opportunity to our people with disabilities to be employed or self-employed.
The massage training center will also be open to the public.
The NCDP has yet to put up a price list for the services they provide.
