Off-site chair massage is no longer available. 

 For departments that would like to purchase a massage for their employees, we can still process payment via IDT. 
You’ll need to provide the number of massages you’d like along with the preferred time increment (15-minute, 30-minute, 60-minute, or 90-minute), and a billable UTA Cost Center. Once processed, an electronic discount code will be provided that can be distributed to your employees. 
The discount code can be redeemed online at or in person at the Services & Information Desk inside the MAC. Then an appointment can be scheduled directly with the therapist. 
This change has been made with the health and safety of our therapist and our participants as our top priority.

Meet Wes

In February 2015, Wes joined the University of Texas at Arlington as the licensed massage therapist. Since that time, over 800 individuals have seen him for table massage and several hundred more have participated in our chair massage events. Even after they have graduated, many of his clients continue to return to the Maverick Activities Center for a therapeutic massage. Whether you want to manage your pain, improve your sports performance, overcome an injury, or just need to relax from everyday pressures, massage is beneficial for almost everyone.
