Student Clinic and Massage Training
The student massage clinic is an integral part of the student learning experience. It is where our students train and practice their massage and bodywork, client interaction, and professional skills on the general public under the supervision of a skilled massage instructor.
Our massage clinic is also a place of relaxation and healing; a place in which our students, graduates, and instructors can be of service to the community. It is a place in which clients can optimize health, experience pain relief, and seek assistance with health issues.
Treatments are performed by students who are enrolled in the Diploma program, under the supervision of an instructor. At a minimum, students can perform a relaxation therapeutic massage but, based on where they are in their training, may not be able to deliver a great deal of pressure, work on specific issues, or work with certain modalities. Students are randomly assigned to clients. For those clients who wish to request a specific therapist, gender, skill level, or specific bodywork modality, we recommend a professional therapist.
Student clinic availability varies based on the number of classes going through the program, holidays, and school breaks.
It is imperative that you read the student clinic policy before you book your first appointment, including our right to refuse service, scheduling and cancellation, informed consent clauses, and liability waiver.
Student clinic meets 3-4 days a week.
The clinic is managed by our affiliate company, River North Massage Therapy Center.
There are two clinic locations:
- Chicago, at 747 N LaSalle Drive, and
- Tinley Park, at 18440 Thompson Court
