What is Clinic Call-In day? Due to the nature of student scheduling, we have a specific day and time where we can begin to schedule appointments for you. You are welcome to call or come in at that time (please wear a mask if you come in person). Thank you for your patience and understanding during this high call volume time; we are working hard to accommodate a large amount of calls and help every person as quickly as possible. Please don’t leave a message; we ask that you keep calling back until someone answers. Also, please be prepared to be on hold for a bit until someone can get to you. Thank you again for your patience! If you can’t call us on that specific day, please feel free to call the next week. Appointments fill quickly, so we cannot guarantee availability.

Types of Massage Offered
- Swedish– Swedish or traditional massage is a combination of various movements and strokes on the body. Swedish strokes vary in depth and rhythm according to the results sought, including stimulation, relaxation and rehabilitation. They also take into account such factors as age, health status, strength and certain conditions. It is popular in health spas and sports clubs. Persons suffering from stress, decreased circulation and muscle fatigue often find relief from this modality.
- Therapeutic– Therapeutic massage includes deep tissue, neuromuscular, and sports massage (facilitated stretching) techniques. It intervenes in the cycle developed by trauma and/or injury, soft tissue dysfunction and lack of movement often accompanied by pain. Therapeutic massage is often used in chiropractic offices and medical massage clinics.
- Integrated– This approach uses a variety of the above methods. The student will also blend the styles he or she knows and then design the massage for the individual client.
