Massage ChairMassage Chair with Client
The Wellness Center is excited to announce that we are now offering full-body electronic chair massage appointments at no charge to UW students! We have two massage chairs located in the Wellness Center's Re-charge Room. We also have electric foot massagers, available on a first come, first serve basis in the Wellness Center Zen Den.

Re-Charge Room

The Re-Charge Room is a quiet, relaxing place within the Wellness Center with two full-body electronic massage chairs (Human Touch® Novo XT2). Use of the Re-Charge Room can be helpful to lower stress levels, relieve tension, improve circulation, and release endorphins.

Who is Eligible for a Chair Massage?

  • Current UW students with a valid WyoOne ID are eligible to receive electronic chair massage.
  • Do not use the chair if you have any of the following health issues: thrombosis, aneurysms, acute varicosity, dermatitis or skin infections, acute neck sprain; or if you are in the early stages of pregnancy or have recently given birth.
  • Do not use the chair if you have injuries (ribs, feet, hands, head, shoulders, back, etc.).
  • Do not attempt to use the chair if you have a fear of enclosed spaces.

How do I schedule a Chair Massage Appointment?

  • Electronic chair massage is available by appointment only to current UW students. You must show a valid WyoOne ID card when you check in.
