and your department to a Massage.
A 10-minute chair massage can do wonders to relieve stress and tension and alleviate neck and shoulder pain. Through the OSU Health Plan, departments can request complimentary, on-site chair massages for benefits-eligible faculty and staff once a year.
The therapist can be on-site for up to four hours and accommodate 20 people during that time. Larger departments can schedule more than one time per year in order to accommodate everyone.
If you are interested in scheduling a visit from a massage therapist for your department, all you need is a quiet room with at least 8 x 8 feet of unimpeded space for the therapist to work in. Participants will be asked to sign a waiver indicating that they have no medical issues preventing them from utilizing the service.
To schedule on-site chair massages for your department, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Appointments are scheduled a quarter in advance, and the second quarter is now full. Scheduling for third quarter will open on June 3, 2019, at 8 a.m. This is a highly desired service and the schedule tends to fill quickly.
