Hamilton Recreation Center hires massage therapist

Massage therapy is famous for reducing tension, but it can also keep you healthy. A 2010 study from the Cedars-Sinai’s Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences found that people undergoing massage therapy experienced measurable boosts to their immune system. CMU’s Hamilton Recreation Center recently added a massage therapist to its staff, supplementing its many services, classes, activities and programs with another amenity.

Massages can be extremely beneficial, extending beyond simply soothing away aches and pains. Massage can be a powerful ally in managing stress by decreasing anxiety, enhancing immune function and lowering diastolic blood pressure. It also helps enhance sleep quality, improve concentration and increase circulation and joint range of motion. Massage lowers toxic stress hormone levels in the blood and puts you in a better mood overall.

Hamilton’s new massage therapist, Marlee Rodriguez, graduated from Idaho State University with a certification in massage therapy. She has worked in corporate, public and private massage therapy settings and brings a wealth of knowledge, including experience with sport, hot stone, pre- and post-natal, deep tissue and trigger point massage.

Appointments are open to students, faculty, staff and the public; rates vary.
