As a part of our massage therapy program, we require the students to do a number of massages on the public. This gives the students the state-required practical experience they need before graduation. It also is a great way for the public to receive a massage at a discounted rate.
Student Massage Clinic - Frequently Asked Questions
What is a student clinic?
Blue Sky School of Professional Massage & Therapeutic Bodywork is a massage therapy school that has been graduating massage students since 1985.
The Student Massage Clinic is a teaching facility. Massages are performed by students for educational purposes. They are students who have not graduated yet, but who have successfully completed the Blue Sky requirements to enter into student clinic. The purpose of the massage is for stress reduction, relief from muscular tension or spasm, or for increasing circulation. The student massage therapist does not diagnose illness, disease, or any other physical or mental disorder. As such, the student massage therapist does not prescribe medical treatment or pharmaceuticals. This massage session is not a substitute for medical examinations and/or diagnosis.
It is recommended that the client see a physician for any physical ailments that they may have. The student massage therapist needs to be aware of existing physical conditions; therefore, the client must state all of their known medical conditions and will take it upon themselves to keep the student massage therapist updated on their physical health. There is no illicit or sexually suggestive behavior, remarks, or advances tolerated. It will result in the immediate termination of the session and liable for payment of the scheduled appointment.
Since it is a teaching facility, the client authorizes the following parties to have access to their information: the student massage therapist, clinic supervisors, Blue Sky's administrative personnel, Wisconsin Educational Approval Board, and other accreditation agencies as requested by Blue Sky.

Cards can be used for Student Training Clinic and Professional Services, Blue Sky Wellness store purchases, Blue Sky classes and seminars. Tips can not be added or deducted from the cards.
When/how do I use gift certificates?
Call for a massage appointment. We issue a schedule of appointments a month or two at a time. Regarding appointment availability, please keep in mind, that the student training clinic is a teaching facility working with students’ availability. At times, this can cause delays in publishing the schedule or finding an open time/day that is ideal for you. We try our very best to meet your needs. However, we do ask that you be flexible with your choices.
What do I wear?
Whatever you feel is comfortable. Typically there is partial disrobing; however the area not being worked on will be covered with a sheet. i.e. working on the back – the back would be exposed, however the rest of the client is covered with a sheet. It is also perfectly acceptable for the client to wear shorts, tank top, etc, whatever your comfort level is.
When do I arrive for my appointment?
If it is your first time at Blue Sky, you should arrive at least 10-15 minutes before your scheduled appointment to fill out the necessary paperwork.
