The Mind Spa

Feeling Stressed? Looking for new relaxation techniques? Just need a space to relax and unwind? Did you know Counseling Services is home to The Mind Spa? The Mind Spa is a biofeedback lab and relaxation room available to you during our regular office hours.

With biofeedback, you're connected to sensors that give you information about your bodily functions, such as heart rate and skin conductance. This information helps you make subtle changes in your body, which can help with relaxation. You will practice deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, guided imagery, and mindfulness. The Mind Spa also features a massage chair, aromatherapy, coloring for calm, a Zen garden, water features, a yoga mat and sound spas.

Use of The Mind Spa and biofeedback services are free, just call or come by to book your session now.
