Client Registration for Clinic Dates & Times

Clinics will be open to the general public for ZAOM Massage School students to practice their skills and techniques. Since this is a student learning environment, the massages will be conducted in a large supervised classroom with privacy screens between massage tables. Clients are requested to arrive early to fill out a client history form and brief consult with their assigned student (If an extreme medical condition is present, the client must bring a Doctor’s clearance for massage and disclose this information prior to clinic date). Following each massage, students will provide a massage recap and clients will be requested to complete a feedback form for student learning opportunities.
