Who Benefits From Massage Therapy? EVERYONE!
Stress is personal, whether you're an athlete training for the Olympics, working out to keep fit, or a student taking several classes and working a job, too. Stress often manifests itself in headaches, cramps, back pain, and physical tension. Stress also leads to decreased energy and lower self-esteem, which may result in decreased productivity. Massage therapy reduces the effects of stress and improves your well-being.

What Is Therapeutic Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy is a hands-on approach to good health. When specific massage techniques are applied to various muscle groups, the muscle fibers respond in a number of positive ways:
*Muscle cell circulation, metabolism, and nutrition for repair and growth will be increased.
*Muscle fatigue will be eliminated more rapidly.
*Muscle soreness will be reduced.
*A state of mental and physical relaxation will be achieved in which repair, recovery, and well-being will be enhanced.

Campus Recreation Intramural Services offers full-treatment massages at the Student Recreation and Fitness Center on an appointment basis.

Massage therapy at the Recreation Center is performed by licensed massage therapists.
