Alternative therapies provided by licensed therapists can be used to de-stress, relax or to work on sore muscles and more. All services are free to all Plymouth State students. Each session is approximately 20 minutes and individuals are allowed to sign up for a therapy once every two weeks in the Wellness Center.
We offer three different types of therapies:
- Reiki- A technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Here at the wellness center, we have a trained Reiki therapist.
- Acupressure- An ancient healing art that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body’s life force to aid healing. Acupuncture and acupressure use the same points, but acupuncture employs needles, while acupressure uses the gentle but firm pressure of hands
- Massage- The manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue to enhance function, aid in the healing process, and promote relaxation and well-being. Massage therapy is the most popular therapy type here at the Wellness Center.
