Student Massage Therapy Clinic Details
Experience a relaxing and therapeutic massage at a great price.

The Massage Therapy Clinic simulates a real-world working environment for therapeutic massage students. Massages this term are available is increments of 20-minutes, 50-minutes and 80-minutes.

Our mission at the Massage Therapy Clinic is to provide a supportive environment where each student can practice and perfect their skills in preparation for a career in Massage Therapy. The student utilizes the clinic setting as an extension of their education by combining various approaches and techniques they have learned.

The student learns to use professional observation and information from the client to implement an effective session.

The student does not diagnose or otherwise suggest treatments outside the scope of a massage therapist. If you have a specific request, we recommend you seek a professional Massage Therapist or your medical professional.

Students working in the clinic are not Licensed Massage Therapists but work under the supervision of a Harper Massage Therapy Faculty member who are all Illinois Licensed Massage Therapists.

  • The purpose of the Massage Therapy Clinic is to provide every student with equal opportunities to work with a variety of clients. Therefore, we are unable to honor requests for therapists of a specific gender. Requests for a particular student therapist will be considered; however, assignment to that therapist is subject to availability and the needs of the students.

 

Please arrive 10 minutes early to complete necessary paperwork, and prepare for your session. A session is comprised of one hour: 50 minutes of massage time, five minutes for disrobing/redressing and five minutes for consultation with the therapist.

Harper College is proud of the individuality and diversity of education for its students. Therefore, we do not honor requests for male or female therapist.

Confirming Appointments
The Massage Therapy Clinic clinic is for educational purposes only. It is essential that students have clients to work with. Each client will receive a reminder email approximately 1-3 days before the scheduled appointment.

Late Appointments
Due to the scheduling nature of the clinic, clients who arrive late will have a shorter appointment. Please call 847.925.6000 ex 2805 and alert us to let us know if you are going to be late for your appointment. Clients who arrive late and do not notify the clinic may lose their appointment to another client.

The Massage Therapy Clinic is located in the Avante Center, Building X, Room X105. Clients may park in the Dental Clinic lot (lot 4A), but must come directly to the massage office in X105 to obtain a parking pass.  View maps and directions.
