In addition to the 525 hours of instruction in our massage therapy school program, students are required to participate in 50 hours of student clinic outside of their class schedule. You may choose either Thursday or Friday evening to work in the clinic 5 hours per week during ten weeks of clinical experience.

The clinic portion of our massage therapy school program gives you the opportunity to work with the general public in a safe environment under the supervision of an instructor. You will receive constructive feedback from both your clinic supervisor and your clinic clients. This hands-on experience and feedback will help you develop the skills you need to begin your career in massage therapy with confidence. Many of our alumni consider this to be the most valuable preparation for the "real world" that they received during school.

You'll spend a minimum of 20 hours of your clinic time in direct client contact during at least 20 massage sessions. In clinic you'll also become familiar with administrative procedures for working as a massage therapist. This experience complements the business classes in our massage therapy school program and provides you with the practical experience you need to manage your own business successfully when you graduate.

Student massages are provided at the affordable rate of $35.00. For more information about student massages at our clinic, see Student Massages.
