About the clinic


The Georgian College Massage Therapy Clinic provides a variety of general and specialized massage therapy treatments for those of all ages.

These clinics allow students from the Massage Therapy program develop and deliver individualized treatment plans, under the supervision of Registered Massage Therapists.

Students also make referrals as necessary and practice all the learned components and applications of the program.

If it is your first appointment, please arrive 10 minutes early to complete a privacy consent form. Treatment is not guaranteed due to the varied length of each client’s assessment.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)


Can you buy gift certificates? 

Yes. Gift certificates are available to purchase from one of the customer service representatives at the reception desk.

Can I tip the students? 

As this is a learning environment, we do not accept tips; however, students are able to accept your written comments and feedback and we welcome referrals.

Can I be scheduled with a certain student therapist? 

Our main purpose of the teaching clinics is to provide authentic learning environments for our students. Effective April 24 2019 we cannot accommodate requests for things such as gender of massage therapy student as this would not allow us to provide equal opportunity for student learning.
