Student Massage Clinic

All Diamond Light students enrolled in our 100 hour Massage Therapy Course and our 250 hour or 500 hour certification programs have the opportunity to complete a supervised massage therapy internship in our student massage clinic at Bodywise Massage in San Rafael, California.

Working at our student massage clinic provides invaluable professional experience and seamlessly smooths your transition from student to working massage therapist.

At the massage clinic you will have the opportunity to perform low cost massage on the public in a beautiful, professional setting, gaining valuable on site training in professional protocol, as well as familiarity working in a professional environment.

Many of the professional massage therapists employed in the professional massage clinic at Bodywise are Diamond Light graduates, as is the owner , so you will have the comfort and guidance of a supportive and likeminded community as you transition into your career as a massage therapist.

At our student massage clinic you will work with clients who are aware that you are a student and have agreed to complete a detailed evaluation of every aspect of your massage. These evaluations provide you with valuable feedback for improving not only your massage technique but cultivating qualities and skills necessary to succeed as a professional massage therapist.

While students don't receive payment for their internship at our student massage clinic, (it's not legal to receive payment for massage prior to certification) tips are common and often students at the clinic have the opportunity to move into a paid position at the Bodywise Professional Massage Clinic upon completion of their certification.

Your clinical internship shift will be scheduled at your convenience, usually 2 - 3 hours per week for 8 - 10 weeks and can be completed during or after your coursework.
