Massage Therapy Clinic

Humber’s Massage Therapy Clinic offers appointments to anyone - faculty, staff, students and members of the public with students in the Massage Therapy program. Students in Humber’s 3-year advanced diploma program in Massage Therapy offer this service as part of their on-campus internship which is a component of the program curriculum.

CLINIC TREATMENT OPTIONS


NEW PATIENT ASSESSMENT
STUDENT 10+HST | NON-STUDENT 20+HST
Assessment - 30 to 45 minutes

As a new patient, your massage therapy student will interview you about your current and previous health status and any pain you are experiencing to determine areas of discomfort or focus. Together, you will establish the goals for treatment. The massage therapy student will perform physical assessments, as appropriate for your goals, to determine a safe and effective treatment plan specific to your needs and goals.

All patients in the Massage Therapy Student Clinic must undergo a new patient assessment before other treatment options will be available to book.

Please wear or bring loose fitting clothing for the assessment (such as shorts and a t-shirt).


REHABILITATION OR MAINTENANCE APPOINTMENT
STUDENT 20+HST | NON-STUDENT 38+HST
Reassessment and consent - 15 minutes, Treatment - 30-45 minutes, Remedial Exercise - 15-30 minutes

Once you have an established treatment plan for rehabilitation or maintenance, your massage therapy student will provide a 30 to 45 minute specific treatment. This treatment will use massage techniques that are best suited to achieve your goals. Some techniques may be uncomfortable, so your massage therapy student will check in with you to ensure treatment is safe and effective. Areas of the body will be determined by your initial assessment. Fifteen minutes are set aside to discuss any changes in your health, reassess and to obtain your consent for today's treatment.

NEW TREATMENT PLAN FOR RETURNING PATIENTS
