  • The Clinic Area

    The student who provides your massage will escort you to the massage school clinic area.

    Our student clinic area consists of 6 semiprivate client areas and 5 private area.

    Please keep conversations to a minimum.

    The student clinic supervisor will observe part of the massage since our massage school clinic is a living classroom.

  • Draping

    You may leave on undergarments or wear a bathing suit. You will have a full sheet drape.

    Please disrobe and cover yourself with the drape.

    Each area of your body will be undraped and re-draped as needed.

    Areas of your body that are not part of the massage will never be undraped.
  • Clinic Do's and Dont's

    Do feel free to inform family members and friends.  Our objective is to fill the appointment times so our students will have plenty of “hands on” experience.

    Do arrive about 10 minutes early. This will allow time for check-in, payment, and a preliminary interview. Since these procedures are required, arriving on the hour may take time away from your actual massage.

    Do enter the school by the main front door and remember to be as QUIET as possible so as not to disturb other massages.  

    Don't bring infants or small children. We do not have provisions for child care and children may not be left unsupervised.

    Don't wear jewelry and watches. These items need to be removed for the massage, so it is best to leave your valuables at home.
  • After Your Visit

    Expect to feel unusually relaxed.

    Drink plenty of water to help those toxins that are stimulated flush their way through your system.

    Massage therapy can also help establish good sleep patterns.

    You may receive more than one massage a week or receive a two-hour massage.
  • Appropriate Behavior

    No sexual innuendo or suggestive behavior is permitted. Such behavior will terminate your student massage session immediately.
  • When Not to Receive a Massage

    Student massages are performed in a teaching environment as a learning experience for the student so clients must be in reasonably good health or have a condition that does not require a doctor's approval to receive massage. You should not receive massage therapy if you:

    have a fever

    have a contagious rash (poison ivy, fungal infection, etc.)

    have any type of infection

    are incapacitated to travel

    If you are not sure whether or not a particular condition is appropriate, simply call our office before the appointment, and someone will help you make an educated decision.
  • Cancellations

    Please notify us 24 hours in advance or you will be charged the for the appointment time.

    No portion of your fee can go to students, as per Louisiana Law.
  • Tipping

    No tipping, cash, or gifts may be given to student massage therapists, as per Louisianan Law, which forbids tipping until a massage therapist license is received. Your honest evaluation is the best tip.
