Student Massage Therapy Clinic

Our public clinic allows Georgian Massage Therapy students the opportunity to provide services while developing their skills at the appropriate level in their learning, under the supervision of Registered Massage Therapists.

Students also make referrals as necessary and practise all of the learned components and applications of the program, including the development of individualized treatment plans.

Georgian Health and Wellness clinics operate in partnership with each other. When you seek care at our clinic, your information will be stored on a common database and certain health information will be shared with the other professionals within the partnership.

If you have questions or concerns about what information will be shared, please contact us.
