Whether you need a relaxation massage or have a condition that requires a therapeutic treatment, our students are trained to the highest standards nationally and can meet your needs. This is a student-run clinic and a supervised learning environment. 

We are excited to announce that the Massage Therapy Student Practicum Clinic at Mount Royal University is open. We are operating under the guidance and direction of Alberta Health Services (AHS). The safety of our clients, students, instructors and staff is our top priority. See below for more detailed information. After booking your appointment, you will receive an email with instructions, including safety protocols.

Treatments are free during the Fall 2020 Semester, as we've suspended fees. The $30 fee for one-hour massage treatments ($20 for MRU students, staff, faculty, and alumni with a OneCard) will be reviewed prior to Winter 2021 Semester. Proceeds support our student scholarships.

What to expect at your appointment

Stage 2 of the Government of Alberta’s Opening Soon relaunch strategy allows for massage therapy to take place with physical distancing requirements and other public health guidelines in place. We are following guidelines from AHS to ensure that all protective measures are in place to safeguard against the spread of COVID-19.

Please take some time to review the measures we’ve implemented to promote safety. On the day of your appointment, please perform the AHS COVID-19 Self-Assessment.
