Fitness Center's Massage Program

Are you taking care of your body, mind and soul? Are you requiring some special treatment to relax? Does pain or restricted movement keep you from living the life you want? Sports injuries, household accidents, repetitive actions on the job, and tension from everyday stresses cause problems that can sometimes last the rest of a person's life.

Massage As Therapy

Massage is a gentle therapy that can relieve pain and, in combination with medical attention, heal certain conditions and help prevent their return.  Massage helps with stress, painful or tight muscles, delayed muscle soreness, pain or tingling in the arms or legs, minor injuries, prevention of new injuries, pain or restriction in the joints, posture, and fluid retention.

The MWR Fitness Center hires only certified massage therapists. A certified therapist is someone who has attended formal training through a massage school and has met required training hours. They may be certified in several types of massage (Swedish, Sports, Deep Tissue, Relaxation, Reflexology, Trigger Point and Pre-Natal Massage) and have working knowledge of anatomy and physiology. They are required to perform a pre-screening evaluation with the Fitness Director. We offer therapists from all over the US. Come try one today! By appointment only. Massage sessions are held in the massage room at the Fitness Center. Payment of cash, card or check must be made at time of scheduling or within 24 hours of appointment. Payment can be made at the Fitness Center front desk.

Fitness Center's Group Classes

The MWR Fitness Center offers a variety of group exercise classes. For details on qualifications to become an instructor send an email to fitness@rotamwr.com.
