MAS 205 - Massage Practicum I: Clinical Applications

4 Cr.

This course will allow students to meet New York State Department of Education requirements for 150 hours of massage therapy practice under the supervision of a licensed massage therapist. The course is designed to create a clinical setting in which the student, under licensed staff supervision, will begin to hone therapeutic techniques learned in previous training, and develop basic skills in the art of massage therapy. Through intensive practice, the student will gain valuable hands-on experience in the field of bodywork, meeting a variety of challenges: intake procedures, assessment and treatment plans, record keeping, fee schedules, billing procedures, interpersonal communication, as well as performance evaluation from instructors and massage recipients. Students will have the opportunity to work with members of the community, other students and faculty members, etc. Community service also makes up a part of this clinical practicum. Students will conduct on-site massage under licensed staff supervision, expanding their range of experience, and providing members of the community with the benefits of therapeutic massage they may not otherwise receive. Usually offered Fall semester.
Pre-Requisites: MAS 203, BIO 215, HED 214.
Pre-Requisites that may be met concurrently: MAS 204.
