The Chicago School of Canine Massage Student Clinic is now open! The student clinic, a canine massage therapy clinic and outreach program sponsored by the Chicago School of Canine Massage (CSCM), is designed to give students and graduates the opportunity to use the skills they've learned in class in a real life setting. It is staffed and operated by students and graduates with supervision by one of CSCM's lead instructors. Instructors will be present to support students through the process of a professional canine massage session, which includes a client intake and initial evaluation, client interaction and communication, and a variety of massage techniques. The student clinic will provide students an avenue to utilize their talents while giving back to the community as each month CSCM will showcase a rescue or shelter partner to which all profits from the clinic will benefit. The cost of a one hour evaluation and session in the student clinic is $20.
If you are interested in scheduling a session at the student clinic please click here to complete the online intake form. Please note that we may require a diagnoses and/or referral from an attending veterinarian if the animal has a current condition or injury and that in order to bring your dog to the student clinic it must be human and dog friendly.
The student clinic will be located at Integrative Pet Care. Integrative Pet Care is a veterinary center in Chicago dedicated solely to physical rehabilitative therapy, fitness, and holistic wellness needs for pets. Their services include hydrotherapy, therapeutic laser, veterinary acupuncture, chiropractic, massage, and much more!
