stress relief event at AC campus

Worthington students, staff, and faculty were treated to massages and healthy snacks; bananas, granola bars, and bottled water to help them relieve stress for finals. Stress is a prevalent component in today’s fast-paced world which can negatively impact on an individual’s health and well-being. Massage therapy has been shown to be a means by which stress can be reduced significantly on physical and psychological levels. 

Rob and Liz from Massage on the Go USA set up their massage chairs in the Worthington lobby on Monday December 9, 2019.  They gave five minute massages to approximate 25 participates. The following are student comments from their experience: “The massage was fantastic, “It was awesome, the best experience”, “It was very relaxing”, I had pain in my lower back which disappeared after the massage”, “Wonderful experience! Please bring them back soon”, “The massage was great and I feel relaxed”, “This massage was very amazing” and “It was great- ready for finals.” A gigantic Thank you to Student Services work-study student and SGA rep. Noorualin Adil for working this event, and SGA for their continual support with student activities.
