Massage is a very effective way to relieve tension during busy and stressful times. Touch can have an immediate effect to bridge mind, body and breath. Whether receiving massage or learning how to exchange it for each other, massage is at once deeply relaxing, rejuvenating, and healing.

Massage Workshops and Chair Massage are offered at your campus locations during End-Quarter Periods and during most other times of the year.

Massage Workshops

Massage works to relieve stress and tension and to rebalance the natural energy flow of the body. Three kinds of massage workshops are offered separately or in combination: Swedish, Thai, and/or Shiatsu. Workshops begin with a demonstration followed by two periods of hands-on practice. The givers will be instructed how to use proper body mechanics (posture and alignment) so as to not tire their bodies, and the recipients will be encouraged to completely relax and let go.

Workshops are 1-4 hours.

Students are encouraged to bring a towel or blanket and pillow for comfort.

Swedish Massage is the most popular style of massage in spas and massage centers around the world today. Students will learn a variety of techniques in an adapted version for the floor. Lotion will be provided.

The suggested dress code for Swedish Massage is: shorts or pants that can roll up; and a tank top or T-shirt; and clean feet if you want a foot rub :)

Thai Massage is an ancient healing art that was developed in India in the time of the Buddha, 2,500 years ago. It was eventually brought to Thailand, where it remains to this day an integral part of Traditional Thai Medicine. Thai massage includes slow pressure along the body's 'Sen' or energy lines and many stretches - thus also being called Thai Yoga Massage.

Chair Massage

Chair Massage is offered by our team to individual students and focuses mainly on the upper body (back, shoulders, neck, arms and hands). It makes for a perfect study break!

This type of massage therapy is available for students in sessions of 15, 20, or 30 minutes.

Multiple massage therapists are available for 2-6 hours each.

Table Shiatsu

Table Shiatsu is a Japanese style that uses rhythmic and sustained pressure on points along the body’s meridian lines to stimulate natural curative abilities. Passive stretching is also used to open the joints and allow for increased circulation.

The suggested dress code for Table Shiatsu is: pants or shorts, short or long sleeve shirt, clean feet or socks.
