Your First Time at the Clinic
Upon arrival, please check-in at the reception desk and they will provide further instructions. You will be required to complete a medical history form which will be discussed with you by the attending student intern. Please arrive 15 minutes early to have sufficient time to complete this form. Please be assured your privacy will be respected - all client records are treated respectfully and confidentially and within the normal practices of a health care facility. All massages will take place in private rooms.
At the beginning of your treatment, the student therapist will clarify your goals for the massage, review your general health, ask specific or additional questions about aspects of your health history that may impact on your treatment, and conduct a physical assessment (observation, tests, palpation). This may take 10 – 15 minutes of the allocated appointment time and is an important part of the student’s learning.
The student therapist must obtain your informed consent before providing you with massage therapy, which means discussing the proposed treatment plan with you and coming to a mutual agreement as to what it will entail. If you are unclear about any of the information, we encourage you to ask. The College would like to see you to gain the maximum benefit from your massage and to feel relaxed and comfortable in the clinical environment.
The student will leave the room while you undress, having first explained what will be required. The level to which you will be asked to undress depends on the therapeutic requirements requested, however, the level of dress is always the decision of the client. You will always be properly draped with sheeting so that only the part of your body being treated at the time will be uncovered. After the treatment, the student will leave the room and allow you to dress. The college has both male and female student therapists.
During your massage, the R.M.T. supervisor may visit the room. You can expect the supervisor to discuss your case presentation with the student therapist, and you might find that the supervisor shows the student therapist how to perform certain techniques and then has them demonstrated by the student therapist as a component of your massage.
A minimum of 24 hours notice is required to cancel appointments. Any cancelled appointments with less than 24 hours notice or any missed/no-show appointments will result in full billing of the missed treatment. In cases of severe weather or illness, please try to give as much notice as possible, as the policy will still apply.
