Student-led Massage Clinic

The Student-led Massage Clinic provides comprehensive general and specialty massage treatments for those at all stages of life.

About the clinic

The Georgian College Student-led Massage 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 to 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 15 minutes early to complete a privacy consent form. Treatment is not guaranteed due to the varied length of each client’s assessment.

IMPORTANT NOTE: At any time before or during treatment the supervising Registered Massage Therapist may determine that treatment shall not proceed due to increased health risk to a client or others in the setting (e.g. individuals with greater risk for more severe disease outcomes from COVID-19 during the pandemic would be considered too high risk to proceed with treatment in most cases).

 COVID-19 update


Due to COVID-19, all massage therapy clients are required to wear a face covering during appointments as per the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario.

We have additional protocols in place for the safety of our clients, students and staff. For more information, visit our Health and Wellness Clinic FAQs.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Can I buy a gift certificate?Georgian College Chevron

No, gift certificates are not available.

Can I tip the students?Georgian College Chevron

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?Georgian College Chevron

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.

Changes to the schedule can be made at the discretion of the clinic faculty.

Do I have to wear a mask during my massage?Georgian College Chevron

Yes. A medical grade mask will be provided to you by Georgian at the college entrance and must be worn during your treatment.
