Student Clinic Course Objective:
To provide the students the opportunity to practice Massage Therapy in a supervised setting utilizing their clinical as well as their business skills. In this class, in addition to their clinical skills, students practice professionalism, communication skills, bookkeeping and office management skills.
Students are encouraged to recruitment family / friends and individuals from the community for a great hands-on experience. These clients allow the students to practice the manual skills they learn in class and to practice the skills needed to successfully run the business aspects of a practice. Students learn to keep client records, file, schedule appointments, and write reports to communicate with doctors, insurance companies, attorneys, and other health care professionals.
