Hot Stone Massage Therapy

The effects of massage have been researched thoroughly. In a report on WebMD – which referenced 12 studies – anxiety, depression and insomnia are specified as conditions that are relieved by massage, indicated by the lowering of cortisol levels and the increase in levels of neurotransmitters.

As discussed in an article on TLC’s “How Stuff Works,” hot stone massage treatment gets credit for improving health in many ways. Not only has it been shown to improve circulation and aid in detoxification, it also stimulates the immune system and improves digestion – all very important for surviving the holiday season! 

Campus Recreation is offering free hot stone treatment with any 60- or 90-minute massage when booked now through the end of the year. All therapists are state licensed and available Monday through Saturday at both the Campus Recreation Center and the Fitness Center at CARE/Crawley. Male and female therapists are available for your convenience.

You can book your massage by stopping by or calling Member Services at 513-556-0604 with 24 hours notice.
