WARNING: This is a meetup that involves your getting a massage.

If you are an LVMT Meetup member and a member of the Public or a Nevada State-licensed Massage Therapist and have a couple of hours to help/mentor a current massage therapy student, consider this:

Students need guidance. Your feedback is sought and needed, by both the programs that educate future licensed massage therapists and the Students of these programs. Part of their education is to perform massage on the Public in school-hosted Clinics that put them in touch with their technical and business skills to increase their confidence and effectiveness. Wouldn't you like to help IMPROVE their performance?
Wouldn't you like to know that there are more qualified and experienced graduates entering the massage therapy profession every year?

ANY Member of the LVMT Meetup group is invited to participate in this LVMT meetup:

for Massage Clients: "Massage Half-Priced" for NVMT Clients: "First Massage Free, Subsequent Massages Half-Priced", verification required on-site at the school. the IDEA:

You RSVP to posted dates where the Nevada School of Massage Therapy is working with the LVMT Meetup group to offer incentives to come in to the weekend Student Clinic. The purpose is for you to leave thoughtful, constructive, and positive feedback after your massage. For your Evaluation of the student that has just given you a massage, you will not be charged for your massage (NVMTs only, first one only) OR you will be charged half-price (2nd+ time for NVMTs, all other LVMT group members). You will have given critical feedback for the student to consider, study, and act on during his/her time in student clinic...and probably for the rest of their career! The Skinny:

RSVP to any “Be A Mentor!” LVMT group meetups during 2012 (5 opportunities (http://www.meetup.com/LVMTgroup/events/calendar/)) Print your meetup Ticket and take it to NSMT. Show up at the school during the meetup times – ask for the Clinic manager and show the Clinic Manager your Ticket. Wait in line to be called in for your massage [re: Wait time: getting a massage in student clinic is on a first-come, first-served basis – please plan for wait times ranging from “now” to up to 1 hour, depending on business levels) Receive your massage – TRY to stay alert so you can give good feedback! ;) After your massage, pick up and complete an Evaluation form from the Clinic Manager - tell the student that you need to complete an Evaluation for them and ask if they have a few minutes to review the Evaluation you complete with them. This gives them a chance to clarify and ask questions about points you bring to their attention – positive and constructive! Terms of Use
