Before you take on that turkey, relieve pre-holiday stress with a massage from Western Technical College Therapeutic Massage students. Students are rubbing for a reason as they offer massages to the public on Tuesday, Nov. 23, from 2:30-7:00 p.m. in room 129 of the Coleman Center, 304 6th St. N., La Crosse. A $5 donation will garner a 15-minute massage with proceeds benefiting the La Crosse Community Thanksgiving Dinner.

“Students benefit from the hands-on experience, participants benefit from a relaxing massage for a great price, and the community benefits by having a little extra money to cover expenses of the free thanksgiving dinner,” said Jeanne Johnson, Therapeutic Massage instructor. “What more could you ask for?”

Walk-ins are welcome any time during the event. For more information, contact Johnson at 608.785.9253 or To learn about additional Western Technical College programs and services, call 608.785.9200 or visit the website at
