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 male and female 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 Program, and other accreditation agencies as requested by Blue Sky.
