Our student remedial massage clinics provide an exceptional opportunity for the public to receive remedial massage services at a fraction of industry costs. Our student clinics prioritise student development and on-the-job learning, making it an excellent learning environment for students.

We welcome all members of the public to experience our clinics.

Massage services

Our clinics are run by students studying for the Diploma of Remedial Massage (HLT52015). To ensure the utmost safety and quality, all clinics are supervised by qualified and industry-current therapists at all times.

Our student-run massage services are offered within our learning environments. Students’ direct observations, assessments and supervision take place during treatment.

During your visit, you will have the opportunity to support the student's learning experience by complying with assessment processes conducted by the student therapist within your one-hour booking time.

Note: clinic locations, availability and services are subject to change each term.
