Massage therapy is the use of touch to promote the overall wellness of an individual. UREC's licensed massage therapist offers Swedish, Deep Tissue & Myofascial Release massages - a brief discussion with the therapist of your choice is recommended to determine what is best for you.

Please arrive fifteen minutes before your appointment and bring this Massage Health History Form filled out if this is your first appointment or if you have had any major health changes since your last appointment. The massage studio is located in the UREC Wellness Center on the 2nd floor at the top of center stairway.
The massage therapist will review the health history form, procedures, techniques, and expectations with you before your massage - and answer any questions or concerns you may have. Everyone has different comfort levels when is comes to receiving a massage, therefore, it is up to you to decide what you wear during your massage. Only the section of your body being massaged will be exposed (the rest of your body will be covered by sheets). The main communication that needs to happen during your massage is for your comfort level, if you need more or less pressure, and/or if you experience pain in certain areas. General conversation during your massage is not necessary; you can talk as much as you would like or not at all. Finally, it is important to replenish your body's muscles with water. Drinking extra water will help your body flush toxins and will prevent muscle soreness.
Payments are non-refundable and appointments may not be rescheduled. If for any reason one of our massage therapists needs to reschedule or cancel an appointment with you due to unforeseen circumstances, the massage therapist will attempt to notify you at least two hours prior to your appointment time. The massage therapist will allow fifteen minutes past your scheduled time before considering your appointment a "No Show."
