Massage Clinics

Teaching Clinic Schedule

SIEAM interns provide bodywork therapy using either Chinese medical massage (tuina) or Japanese acupressure therapy (shiatsu).  Both techniques are good for relaxation and stimulating full body circulation, which is important in improving conditions where there is pain, tension, and injury.

Both tuina and shiatsu sessions are done fully clothed and in a community room setting.

1 hour treatment:  $40 unless otherwise noted

Cash, Check, or Visa/Mastercard/Debit, paid at time of service.

Groupon vouchers are not accepted for faculty clinics or preceptorship clinics, or for bodywork clinics.
