Your Gateway To Stress Relief

Gateway Community and Technical College’s new Emerge Hair Studio and Spa won’t officially open until August.  But that doesn’t mean you can’t have their student staff work out “your kinks” right now.  Appointments are being scheduled at the schools’ (859) 815-7791 hotline right now.  The Spa is located in the former Abode furniture store at 440 Scott Boulevard.  Twelve practice rooms are located on the third floor of the building.  Gateway usually averages 16 students in each massage therapy class each term, and 12 have already signed up for the fall.  Program Assistant Director Lance Nelson hopes that offering massages early before the building formally opens will draw attention to the new space and attract more students while there is still time to get enrolled.  Student massages are $15 per 15 minutes and $30 per hour.  Licensed professionals perform $50 per hour massages.   Through the month of June the Center is also offering a “Book One Get One” free offer on one-hour massages.
