Enjoy a Student Massage at the Central Florida School of Massage Therapy’s Student Clinic

Welcome to the Central Florida School of Massage Therapy’s Student Clinic, where we offer massage therapy relaxation sessions with our senior students.

Student massages in our massage school clinic are $35.00 for 50 minutes of light Swedish Relaxation Massage. The students do not perform Deep Tissue, Neuro-Muscular, or Medical massages. To receive the required health form you can call the School at 407-673-6776 or download it here. 

The Clinic Health Form must be completed, signed, and returned for approval to the Clinic Director prior to making the first appointment

Student massages are performed in a teaching environment as a learning experience for the student so clients must be in reasonably good health or have a condition that does not require a doctor’s approval to receive massage. We are seeking clients to provide a variety of experiences for our students to aid in their learning process.

The Student Clinic Supervisor will observe the student several times during the massage, assist with technique, and answer any questions for the student or client. Student massages are performed in an enclosed, peaceful environment that provides the client with ample privacy. Very strict draping rules are followed so that areas of the body that are not being massaged are draped at all times and private areas are never exposed. Once you have been approved for a student massage, the receptionist will call you to set up an appointment in our massage school clinic on a Thursday or Friday.
