Tipping students is not allowed. It is against the Texas Department State Health Services Massage Therapy Licensing Program’s rules. Please refrain from offering students a tip, as this could jeopardize their future in the program. Your honest feedback to students based on your experience is all that we ask so they can further develop their skills.
Due to teaching schedules, clinic hours vary during weekdays. Although we normally have appointments available during the week starting at 8:30 a.m. through 10:00 p.m., it’s always best to contact us by calling our student clinic at (915) 231-4945. We’re open most Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
To maintain affordable prices and minimize no-shows, we have a no-refund policy for no-shows. Arriving late to your appointment will reduce the duration of your service. There is a $5.00 rescheduling fee.
Student Therapist Requests
We realize that our clients develop preferences for particular student therapists. When available, we may be able to accommodate such requests, but it is not guaranteed. We reserve the right to refuse service.
Because the student clinic is a learning environment, therapeutic experiences may vary. No unattended children in our waiting area please or any other part of WTC. Our clinic does not accommodate clients younger than 12 years old. Guardians must be present within the treatment area during massage therapy sessions for all minors under the age of 17. To maintain an ideal learning environment for all WTC students, guests of the college must maintain minimal noise levels. WTC reserves the right to ask guests with excessive noise levels to move to the student cafeteria or leave the building. The student library is for students only. The student cafeteria can be used for guests as they wait for friends or family members receiving services, but minimal noise levels must be maintained. Please keep hallways clear at all times. For everyone’s safety, please do not set up play areas for children in hallways or anywhere else on campus.
