Massage can decrease stress, relax the mind and body, diminish pain, decrease depressive and anxious feelings, increase concentration, and promote healthy sleep.
Massage is offered year-round at UHS. A 50-minute massage costs $40. Cash and personal checks (made out to the massage therapist) are accepted for payment. Credit cards or online payment are not available for massage. Students may make massage therapy appointments throughout the summer without paying the summer health fee.
Students will complete a health history form and sign a consent form, stating you understand the service. The massage therapist will discuss the type of massage you want to make sure you are comfortable.
When the massage therapist leaves the room, undress to the degree of personal comfort. Some prefer to be completely undressed, while others prefer to wear their underwear or comfortable shorts and a light shirt. At all times, your privacy is respected and you are covered with a sheet or blanket.
If students are late, they may forfeit a portion of the hands-on part of the massage, which is normally 50 minutes. If a student is 15 minutes late (or more) it's considered a no-show. Repeated no-shows or last-minute cancellations may result in the student being denied access to massage services.
Call (608) 265-5607 to schedule an appointment, or visit the 6th floor Green Wing located at 333 East Campus Mall.
