Clinic Policies

The Supervised Student Massage Clinic at Acadia School of Massage is an instrumental component of our Massage Therapy Core Training Program. We are the only school in Maine to offer this invaluable opportunity for our students to gain hands-on experience while at the same time offering our community very affordable massage services.

  • The massage services are determined by what the student massage therapist is currently studying. Students may incorporate Deep Tissue, Swedish and other styles depending upon what they have completed in the program.

  • Therapists are randomly assigned. We are unable to accommodate requests for specific student massage therapists, male or female.

  • Please arrive 10 to 15 minutes early to check-in and fill out any necessary paperwork so that you do not miss any of your session time.

  • Student Clinic takes place at Tree of Life Day Spa, 108 Cottage Street, Bar Harbor. Off street parking is available.

Please note that for the safety of all clients, students, staff and our families we will continue to require the use of face masks for all on premises – regardless of individual vaccination status. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided to you.
