Students massaging peoples' legs

Massage Therapy Clinic

The clinic is an extension of the Centre for Sport & Exercise Education. Our teaching clinic provides an applied learning environment for our massage therapy students to practice their assessment, hands-on skills and post-treatment care with real clients.

Open to Camosun students, employees and the general public

We are pleased to offer the community affordable rates for treatments provided by our Massage Therapy Diploma students under the supervision of an experienced Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) in our  on-campus clinics available at both Interurban and Lansdowne.

Appointment days and hours vary each term. Please contact us at massage@camosun.ca, 250-370-4747 or click the book online button below to see available appointments.

24-Hour Cancellation / No-Show Policy: Missed appointments prevent us from accommodating other clients and ensuring our students receive their required hours. Cancellations with less than 24 hours notice and no-show appointments are subject to being charged the full treatment rate. Please contact us to cancel or reschedule your appointment as soon as possible.

Please Note: As our students are not yet RMTs, we cannot accept clients with current ICBC or WorkSafeBC claims and our treatments cannot be submitted for health insurance reimbursement.

Community In-reach / Outreach

We offer community in-reach and outreach opportunities. This provides our students experience with diverse clientele and working environments.

In-reach

In addition to offering student, staff and public appointments, our Lansdowne Clinic provides space for our massage therapy students to offer treatments to participants within community organizations including but not limited to:  

MOVE Adapted Fitness: an independent registered non-profit society whose vision is to provide accessible and therapeutic exercise to empower people of all physical abilities to experience the enjoyment of moving through life.

Umbrella Society: an organization that provides support to individuals, and their loved ones, struggling with substance use issues. This organization embraces Communities and supports all those affected by substance use and concurrent mental health challenges.

University of Victoria Vikes: Athletes in summer sports (swimming, rowing, baseball, track, and golf) will be receiving treatments from our Massage Therapy students to optimize their performance.

Outreach

Our students provide treatments at external locations such as geriatric facilities, long-term care, medical rehab facilities, sporting events and other facilities that allow for patient treatment.

If you are interested in establishing an in-reach or outreach opportunity, please contact our clinic manager for further details at massageclinic@camosun.ca.
