The Breathing Room has been honored to share a variety of massage, bodywork, and energy healing services in our Central Square location for the last six years, and our $69 student discount massage was one of the highlights of our practice. This was not so much a business or marketing decision for us, but a source of constant inspiration. We are grateful to have been a part of all your journeys.
We’ll be closing on Sunday, April 29, and are currently completely booked through that date. But Ken and Jen will be lingering in the same space as CsQuare Massage at Five Doors Health + Wellness, and will continue to offer a student discount in their new practice. You can start booking their May openings right now through this link. Booking information for Shereen’s Thai Passive Yoga sessions will also be posted here once it’s available.
Fine print: Please bring a valid student ID from an accredited college or university to lock in your discount. Not valid with any other discounts.
Also, please understand that the student discount for massage is intended for students who are actively pursuing their undergraduate or graduate degrees. It exists because the massage team feels so strongly about making massage affordable to this community that we’re willing to take a steep, personal pay cut to make sure that happens. And the studio cuts its own share of the proceeds roughly in half to support that mission.
So, if you’re just “sort of” a student, or it’s not totally unambiguous that you’re a student like the community we’ve just described — like you’re taking a credit here or there from a local adult education center or an extension school or some online company, or you’re a student-like professional like a postdoc or resident, or you’re “working full-time as a student of life” — please don’t be offended if we refuse to extend the discount to you as well. We still care about you, but there are only so many communities that we can personally afford to provide such a steep discount for. We hope you’ll understand.
