The massages at Heritage College alleviate stress on two levels: physically and economically. They soothe the muscles with relaxing rubdowns (Swedish) or firm kneading (deep tissue) and address swollen and knotted areas (trigger points), all for just $25 an hour. As a certification school for massage therapists, Heritage allows students who have completed a year of coursework to spend 160 hours getting hands-on experience before they graduate to places like Beauty Brands and up their prices. "Massage therapy is one of those fields that, when you get used to someone touching you, it's kind of a vulnerable situation, so you want to stick with the same person if you like them," says Amanda Nolan, a supervisor at the clinic. So get there before the rates hike. Then try to work a deal as a repeat customer.
