Lower your stress level one massage at a time

By Kellie Oates

Round one of exams may be taking its toll on the stress levels of UK students, but there is an answer.

The Student Activities Board is making sure students maintain that level of stress in a healthy way, and what better way to do it than with a free massage.

Massage on the Go is a new event introduced by the SAB’s Campus Life Committee.

“It will occur three times this semester, during first round exams, midterms and finals (Sept. 24, Oct. 27, Dec. 3),” said Ashlee Harris, director of public relations for SAB.

The massages will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday in the Wildcat Lounge, located outside the Student Government room in the Student Center. There will be five-minute massages every five minutes.

If class schedules are an obstacle, students can sign up on a timesheet located in the lounge and come back after their class.

“It is a great way to relax,” said Campus Life Committee Director Mallory Johnson. “Everybody loves massages, especially when they are free.”
