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 closed for the summer term and will reopen in September 2022.
