Student Clinic

Future dates and locations to be determined.

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.

Students: These hours can be used as make up hours from class. They will however not take the place of case studies. You will have the opportunity to work with up to three clients during your shift.
