Step 4 – Student Led Bodywork Therapy
Bodywork Therapy Student Clinic is a learning environment where students are encouraged to practice techniques cultivated at the stage of learning they are currently in. Our students are taught a wide range of modalities over the course of their training. If your treatment goals are not within the stage of learning the students are in, your Student Therapist will work with you and their Clinic Supervisor to determine the best course of action to support you safely.
Treatment rooms are set up inside the classroom using curtains. That said, please expect to experience noise from the adjacent treatment rooms. Also, because this is a learning environment, the ‘door’ to the treatment room will be pinned open so the Clinic Supervisor may observe your Student Therapist’s treatment allowing for any necessary feedback to be given either during or after your treatment.
We very much encourage you to communicate how your Student Therapist might better care for your needs throughout your treatment. If your Student Therapist is unsure of how to accommodate you, they may step away to ask their Clinic Supervisor for support. Continued communication gives the Students the information they need to ensure they are effectively achieving the planned results.
Please note we cannot accommodate requests of specific student therapists, or requests based on gender, race, ethnicity or the like. Our priority is to our students and their learning which means we do our best to review our clinic bookings and make the necessary changes to ensure our students are practicing on an array of different bodies. This gives our students diversity in experience, preparing them for their careers. If it is important to you to have a confirmation of a specific therapist, we encourage you to book with a professional spa or clinic.
