The Downeast School of Massage in Waldoboro will host its seventeenth annual Student Massage Clinic starting March 6th, 2020. The clinic is an opportunity for members of the community to become familiar with massage, and for students of the school to get a taste of the “real world” –taking on individual clients with individual physical realities—in a secure, supervised setting. Special free clinics include Pregnancy Massage and Children’s Massage scheduled periodically throughout the clinic calendar.
“Each student clinic has been a real success story,” said Nancy Dail, Director of the Downeast School of Massage. “People from the community will get a chance to receive massages for a very reasonable price, and it is a wonderful opportunity for students to work with people they have never met before, helping the students to develop the personal interaction skills that are so important in a private clinic setting”.
The institution at DSM is licensed by the State of Maine. Students receive over 600 hours of training in Anatomy, Physiology, Kinesiology, Nutrition, Pathology, Ethics, related subjects, and special modalities such as Sports Massage, Deep Tissue techniques and Energy courses. As part of the required program for the Therapeutic Massage Course, Clinic rounds out the student’s experience in a practical setting. Clinic supervisors work directly with the students, helping with technique, checking medical histories and SOAP notes, developing treatment goals, and monitoring student body mechanics. Clinic participants give feedback to students through evaluation forms. Each student must complete 71 hours of therapeutic massage in clinic as well as outside logged hours and case histories.
Starting Friday, March 6th, 2020, the clinic will be open on a variety of Fridays, and then Wednesdays and Fridays in August throughout the clinic season. The clinic will operate into August 2020. A donation of $35 is requested. A senior citizen discount is offered.
