MAS 206 - Massage Practicum II: Clinical Applications

2 Cr.

This clinical practicum will ensure that students meet New York State Department of Education requirements for 90 hours of massage therapy practice under the supervision of a licensed massage therapist. As in MAS 205, this course is designed to create a clinical setting in which the student, under licensed staff supervision, will hone therapeutic techniques learned in previous training and the first clinical practicum, and further develop skills in the art of massage therapy required of an entry level massage therapist. 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 Spring semester.
Pre-Requisites: MAS 203, MAS 204, MAS 205, BIO 215.
Pre-Requisites that may be met concurrently: MAS 207.
