Student MT

We have once again partnered with UCHA in Omaha to provide a safe space for their students to do their clinical massage practice. Student massages are $45 for an hour. Clients should not expect the same level of knowledge or skill as a Licensed therapist, but will still get a fantasic massage at a reduced priced and help someone grow into being the best therapist they can be. 

Our current student is Kirstin. She is available Sundays from noon to 5pm, Mondays from noon to 3pm and Thursdays from noon to 3pm.
