Yes, you heard right, you can get a massage at the ARC. Now, we realize that getting a massage at the school gym might not sound appealing, but what you might not know is that there are private massage rooms and personal locker rooms in the ARC’s wellness suite, far away from the gyms and workout areas.
So who’s giving those massages? Well, you might be surprised to find out that all of Campus Recreation’s massage therapists are professionals, not students, and they certified with at least 500 hours of massage training from an AMTA accredited/approved massage school. This is the same certification requirement of all businesses that provide massage services. Here at the ARC, we offer the same relaxing and luxurious experience you would expect from a private massage studio.
Do you have to be an ARC member to sign up for massage therapy at the ARC? No! Anyone can enjoy a massage at the ARC. If you’re not an ARC member, you’ll just need to buy an ARC day pass to enter the building.
So why should you get a massage at the ARC? Well, first off, you’re at UCI, a trustworthy organization where you can be confident that you will be cared for by trained professionals. Also, the ARC Wellness suite provides the same private facilities that you’d find at typical day spa without the extra overhead costs.
