If you have general aches and pains, repetitive strain, or just need to relax and relieve stress, a Therapeutic Student Massage is a right service for you.
Your treatment will begin with a short assessment. Your massage therapist will go over your health history and any issues you want to address. You will then be asked to undress to your personal comfort level and lie under the linens on the table.
The modalities your therapist may choose to incorporate are; light to deep tissue techniques, soft tissue release, myofascial release, joint mobilization, PNF stretching, Pelvic Balancing, golgi tendon organ release, muscle energy techniques and hydrotherapy.
You may feel some discomfort or tenderness during a deep tissue massage, especially if you have areas of tension or tightness in your muscles. It is important to maintain a dialogue on your comfort levels so your therapist can make adjustments with the pressure and techniques being utilized. Please understand that not all issues require deep tissue work or prolonged deep pressure. Your therapist is trained to identify the source of your issue and treat it as needed.
If your purpose is solely for relaxation, your therapist will focus on delivering a flowing massage with steady pressure throughout your body. You may be asked to breathe deeply, which can help promote relaxation and increase the effectiveness of the massage. Your therapist may also use aromatherapy or other relaxation techniques to help enhance the experience.
After the massage, you may feel relaxed and rejuvenated. It’s important to drink plenty of water to help flush out any toxins that were released during the massage. Your therapist may also provide you with some aftercare advice, such as remedial exercises, stretching or self-massage techniques to help facilitate your rehabilitation and progress. A return date for your treatment plan will also be suggested to keep you on track.
Our student massage therapists are licensed and registered but are not yet writing receipts for direct billing. Therefore, your benefits plan may not cover a treatment with a student therapist, check with your provider for details.

An apprentice massage is a type of massage that is performed by a massage therapist who is still in training. This type of massage is typically offered at a discounted rate, as the therapist is still developing their skills.
An apprentice massage may be different from a regular massage in that the therapist may not yet have the same level of experience and expertise as a fully trained massage therapist. However, an apprentice massage can still be effective and provide many of the same benefits as a regular massage.
Yes, an apprentice massage is generally safe. However, it is important to ensure that the massage therapist is properly trained and supervised by a licensed massage therapist or other healthcare professional.
During an apprentice massage, you can expect the massage therapist to use a variety of massage techniques to help address your specific concerns. However, the massage may be slower and more methodical than a regular massage as the therapist is still learning.
