With a busy lifestyle, who really has time to take a whole day at the spa - even though you wish you could? And who can afford to spend a small fortune on a spa trip? UNH Health Services can help! They offer a wonderful alternative to a spa day by offering 50 minute massages. Both traditional and hot stone massages are available by licensed massage therapists at Health Services right here on campus. Massages are available to ALL UNH Students, faculty, and staff members. The best part about the program? It’s extremely affordable. A traditional massage costs only $35 for students and $45 for faculty and staff members. That is only a fraction of the cost charged somewhere else and although $35 may seem costly for a college student, you can assure that your time and money will be well spent!
The massages are specific to you, benefiting areas of your body that may need the most attention. Potential benefits of a massage include muscle tension and stress relief, increased blood circulation, alleviation of pain, and an increased overall well being. As a busy college student, my roommate spends quite a bit of time hunched over her Spanish books and computer in the library. She recently got a traditional massage and couldn’t have felt better! The therapist worked directly on specific parts of her body where she holds her tension and stress. It gave her body total rejuvenation…as finals and end of the year course loads begin to pile up…this could be you!
