Healthy Essence, the student-run massage clinic at Ivy Tech Community College Northeast, has opened for the semester.

Healthy Essence is located in Room CC1783 on Ivy Tech Northeast’s Coliseum Campus, 3800 N. Anthony Blvd., Fort Wayne. The public is asked to park in the west parking lot facing North Anthony Boulevard, and enter through Door 30.

The clinic will offer these appointment times this semester: Mondays, 12:30, 2, and 3:30 p.m.; Tuesdays, 10 and 11:30 a.m. and 1, 3 and 4:30 p.m.; Wednesdays, noon, 1:30, 3, 5 and 6:30 p.m.; Thursdays, noon, 1:30, 3, 5 and 6:30 p.m.; Fridays, noon, 1:30, 3, 5 and 6:30 p.m.; and Saturdays, 10 and 11:30 a.m. and 1, 3 and 4:30 p.m. To make an appointment, email fw-tmsclinic@ivytech.edu or call (260) 480-2094.

The hourlong full-body relaxation massage will be from a student in the therapeutic massage program. Massages run $25 for the community and $20 for Ivy Tech employees and students, military personnel, and those 55 and older. Pay in person, by cash or credit card. Tips are not accepted, but those who wish to tip can choose to donate to a charity chosen by the students.
