After too many months of empty classrooms, we’re overjoyed to have all our students back on campus this month. And that means the moment everyone’s been waiting for is almost here: the return of student clinics!
Our student massage clinics will reopen in a few weeks.
In both Edmonton and Calgary, we will begin with some daytime clinics in late September or early October, which will be booked by email as usual. Regular clinic availability will resume in October. The exact opening dates and availability will vary by campus. We will send email updates to everyone on our contact lists, and make announcements on our website and social media.
We’ve been working hard to keep our students safe and supported as they return to the classroom. Likewise, we are making sure that when you come for a massage at our student clinics this year, you’ll experience the same effective, professional, and safe treatment that you’ve come to expect from our student therapists.
To achieve this, we’ve made a few changes to our clinic compared to previous years. Normally, we offer a very limited number of massage appointments over the summer, and return to full capacity at the beginning of September. This year, though, we’re delaying the start of clinic until later in the fall. This allows our students to readjust to in-person training and to get used to working in a clinic environment once again. And of course, we have updated our already stringent hygiene protocols, and introduced new COVID-specific processes.
We can’t wait to see you again. Many of you have reached out to us over the past few months to say how much our students and clinics mean to you. The feeling is mutual. We feel very privileged to be a part of your lives, and we truly appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate these challenging times together.
