What To Expect

Each therapeutic space has been mindfully built for privacy and comfort for our clients, while allowing for numerous options (such as hot towels, massage cups, etc.) that our students may use to enhance the massage experience

(Note: select tools may only be appropriate to use in returning sessions, i.e. massage cups)

There will be multiple massage sessions occurring at one time, please be courteous of your session neighbors as we keep chatting soft and to a minimum for the best therapeutic experience, thank you!

Please note that we have both male and female massage therapy students in class - if you have a personal preference of who you're scheduled with for your clinic massage, please reach out and we'll ensure you're scheduled accordingly.

  • We do not accommodate special requests pertaining to gender, age, race, experience, etc.

  • Massage therapists are only allowed to perform modalities and techniques in which they have been trained

  • Cubicle privacy curtains will be closed while you change, and remain open during the session to accommodate instructor “coaching”

Business Policies:

  • Due to our limited clinic days, Great Lakes School of Massage does not issue refunds, but we are happy to help reschedule you within the available clinic dates in the event you need to cancel your session 24-hours PRIOR to your pre-booked appointment (No-call, no-shows will absorb the pre-paid cost of the booked session)

  • The client is responsible for keeping the appointment with or without a reminder/confirmation call, text, or email from Great Lakes School of Massage

  • Massage sessions will end at the scheduled time. If the massage session is shortened due to late arrival, the client is still responsible for full payment.

  • The massage session may be canceled if the client is more than 15 minutes late

  • The GLSM clinic is a training class. Student absences may occur which may cause your session to be canceled. If that happens, your therapist will reschedule your appointment if another therapist is not available.
