BLOOMINGTON – The Oasis Massage Therapy Center at Ivy Tech Community College’s Bloomington campus now offers 50 minute therapeutic massage appointments on Thursdays in addition to Fridays. The Oasis has various appointment times starting at 8:50 a.m. and reservations can be made online. It is run by students and faculty of the therapeutic massage program.

There is a $20 fee for massage appointments. The nominal fee has been added to cover the cost of laundering services. Clients are advised to arrive at least 15 minutes before their scheduled appointments to make payment and fill out patient paperwork. Cancelations should be made at least 24 hours in advance in the online registration system. Upon arrival for appointments, clients can check in at the main desk to be directed to the Oasis. Parking is free at Ivy Tech.

Ivy Tech Bloomington’s therapeutic massage program began in 2017 as a response to local workforce needs. Since then 18 students have earned their massage certifications and have gone on to work for local employers, such as Spaah, That’s the Rub, Massage Envy, and French Lick Resort Spa, among others.
