Burgundy Street is just a 350m walk from the Heidelberg campus and is a popular spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner in the area.

The shopping strip offers a wide range of coffee shops, restaurants and eateries to satisfy even the hungriest or caffeine-deprived massage student. The Train Yard offers classic breakfast for early birds and mediterranean meals from lunch to dinner.

Alternatively, head over to Scintilla Cafe at 131 Burgundy Street for the perfect breakfast of bacon and eggs. The coffee isn’t bad, either – pull up a chair, grab a hot drink and review your notes before heading into class in the morning.

“Currently MIMT students help first team players prepare for games and training on a daily basis. The feedback we get from the players, which are the most important people at the club, is that MIMT students are fantastic, they have a willingness to learn and they fit in well with our team.
They also get to come into the physio room and see how we do things and they get a big experience from that.”

This weekend I attended the Introduction to Massage course. I was a little apprehensive to start with as it had been a long time since I was in a learning environment. The morning ice breaker enabled everyone to let their guards down and I became more at ease and settled into what was a fantastic course and learning experience.
