MASSAGE THERAPY

Massage therapy can decrease stress, reduce pain, promote healthy sleep, and relax the mind and body.  Appointments are 60 minutes and only available to UW-Madison students. Our massage therapists will work with you to understand the type of massage you want and answer any questions you have. 

Massages take place in the Wellbeing Services room on the first floor of the Nicholas Recreation Center.

Appointments can be made up to 60 days in advance. We recommend checking our website often, as late cancellations happen and same day appointments are sometimes available.

During the summer term, UW-Madison students not enrolled in summer credits are required to purchase a Student Summer Membership in order to book a massage.

Students: $75

Campus Affiliates: $85
