Help our students learn by receiving a practicum massage in our student clinic, which runs Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons throughout the year, depending on our class schedule cycles. In exchange for giving your honest feedback to help students grow, you’ll receive a discounted rate of $25, paid at booking. Because the rate is so low and the logistics are complex, we do not accept cancellations for rebooking. If you can’t make your scheduled appointment, please send a lucky friend in your place!
Each massage includes 10 minutes of discussion with your therapist and 50 minutes of table time. Because of the nature of the practicum, we aren’t able to accommodate therapist gender preferences.
We meet at Hillsborough Spa and Day Retreat, 1814 Beckett’s Ridge Drive, in Hillsborough. (This is just upstairs from Carolina Massage Institute.) Please arrive early, as we cleave to our tight schedule and must end on time. While we are proud to show you around the spa, practicum appointments don’t include access to the spa amenities—you’ll come in, enjoy your treatment, provide quick feedback, then head home. As per state regulations, tipping is not allowed.
Since we offer these on and off throughout the year, you may need to scroll far ahead to see availability. Sign up for our newsletter in the footer below to learn when we open new dates!
