Student Massage Sessions

Thank you so much for your interest in my Student Massage sessions. I really appreciate your willingness to take the time to be a part of my learning.

It’s important that you read this entire document in full before you book your session, as I have to operate within a strict set of parameters as a Student Massage Practitioner.

Please use the following link to request your session time:

Your session is not confirmed until you receive a confirmation email from me. After you reserve your time, you will receive an email either:

  • Confirming your chosen session date and time, along with my address OR
  • Requesting that you choose another date. This will only happen if the time period you selected has been filled with the maximum number of clients I am allowed

Session Details

Please allow for 90 minutes. This will include a 60 minute Relaxation Massage (this timeframe will include ROM exercises and additional techniques as required by my assignment at that time), a client intake, and assessment. You will be required to complete a Client History Form, which will be kept confidential.

These are NOT professional services, therefore, there will be no payment required on your part.

Disclosure

I am a first-year student at MH Vicars School of Massage Therapy. I am required to see a certain number of clients for Relaxation Massage every month – these are formally called, “OCPs” or “out of class practicums”. For our purposes, I will refer to these OCPs as “Student Massage sessions”.

These Student Massage sessions are in addition to the required clinical practicums that I will be doing at the campus clinic. Therefore, by the time I graduate in 2 years, I will have accrued a significant amount of hands-on practice.

Scope of Practice

I will always be working within my scope of practice and education as a Student Massage Practitioner. My scope of practice will evolve rapidly throughout the year, and therefore your massage experience will change with every session as well.

Please be mindful of the fact that I cannot perform techniques that I am not trained to do, and that I am a first-year student. It would be best for you to come to these sessions with an open mind and a willingness to receive. Be patient! In no time, I’ll be able (and required!) to practice more advanced techniques.

I am certified in CPR & AED Level C (Healthcare Provider’s Level) and Standard First Aid through Red Cross. I maintain these certifications on an annual basis. I have also completed training in Mental Health First Aid.

Client Parameters

As students, we are ENCOURAGED to provide continuity of care, and to “repeat” clients on a monthly basis. However, we are only allowed to see the same client ONCE during our modules (a 4-week period). The module dates are:

Module 2: October 9 – November 5
Module 3: November 6 – December 3
Module 4: December 4 – January 14

There are no “time lapses” required between your individual sessions, as long as it’s once per module.

Once I’ve reached the maximum amount of bookings that I can take within a time period, I will close down bookings for that time.

Please note, that we also have a MAXIMUM number of clients that we can see during each module. If I get more requests than I can fulfill during a module, you may be asked to reschedule for a future module. All requests will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
