Onondaga Public Massage Clinic
Treat Yourself to a Therepeutic Massage
The objective of the Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage is to provide training in the science of massage with the intent of graduating exceptionally trained, highly qualified massage therapists. An integral part of the students’ educational experience is the Student Clinic. The OSTM Clinic provides the public with increased accessibility to massage services at a reduced rate, while allowing students to practice their skills in a supervised setting. All student clinic work is supervised by a NYS licensed massage therapist.
