Stressed? Achy? Tired? Busy?

Make me-time with Healthy Essence, Ivy Tech Fort Wayne's massage clinic run by therapeutic massage students. You’ll be paired with a student for an hour-long relaxation massage*, where you’ll receive the kind of pampering to make your stress melt away. The clinic provides complete privacy in curtained off rooms, a dim atmosphere, and soothing music. And it’s the most affordable massage around.


Healthy Essence is only open to Ivy Tech employees and students for the spring of 2022. Spaces are limited.
