Stress Reduction Clinic
Massage therapy sessions in the Stress Reduction Clinic provide 6 one-hour sessions in both Swedish massage and Shiatsu, with the intention of alleviating tension and promoting an overall effect of general relaxation. Deep tissue massage is not performed in the Stress Reduction Clinic due to the level of training of the therapists. If you require specific work for a complaint or a deep tissue approach, you should submit an application for the Therapeutic Massage Clinic. Each session will be provided by a different student. Individual appointments are not available.
The Stress Reduction Clinic is for people who are generally healthy, and no doctor’s diagnosis is required. Anyone with a medical condition or who is pregnant may apply for treatment in our Therapeutic Massage Clinic.

We will use a very equitable and fair lottery process to register in order to provide all applicants the most favorable chance to get a space. The postmark date and thorough completion of an application are important factors so please answer all questions completely. We will select a random sample of applications received on a given date and register clients in batches of 15 at a time. If your application is not selected in the sample your application will be added to the next date and only returned once we have filled all clinic spaces.
