The Mind Spa at CAPS is a unique sanctuary for everyone in the OSU community where you can soothe your mind, body, and spirit. Come explore an experience like no other on campus. Relax privately in this quiet single-user space, unkink that stubborn muscle in the full body massage chair, center yourself in the meditation corner, use our guided relaxation software to find calmness, or sit by the therapy light on a rainy day. You do not need to be a CAPS client to use the Mind Spa - it's open to all OSU students, faculty, and staff at no charge. Click here to learn more about what's offered in the Mind Spa.
Appointments can be scheduled for 30 minutes or 1 hour (in order to schedule an hour online, please select two consecutive 30 minute spots).
To allow space for everyone, please schedule no more than one appointment at a time (wait until after your session to schedule your next one). If you schedule multiple appointments, all but the first one will be removed.
During fall, winter, and spring term, a limited number of optional orientations are availble for new users weekly (except finals week and breaks). Available days and times are noted on the online calendar.
Please check in at the CAPS front desk when you arrive. If you would like an orientation (only available at times indicated on calendar), please let us know upon checking in.
The Mind Spa is for individual use only.
We offer several drop-in group meditation sessions weekly. Please visit the Mindfulness Meditation Schedule if you're interested!
