Tucson J services expand to massage therapy

The J now offers professional massage therapy by appointment.

The Tucson Jewish Community Center recently added rest and relaxation to its vast array of services and activities. iBalance Wellness Spa now delivers on-the-spot massage services, with regularly scheduled appointments. Therapies include therapeutic, deep tissue, and rehabilitative massage with therapists professionally trained in acute and chronic pain and stress management.

Spa owner Lynda Gonzales opened at the J, her third Tucson facility, about two months ago. A designated treatment room is located in the fitness area.  “We’re excited to offer this exclusively to our members,” says Denise Wolf, the J’s chief operations officer.

J members receive exclusive rates for 60- and 90-minute massages at $65 and $85 respectively, with every 10th massage free. A new client introductory package provides three 60-minute or two 90-minute massages for $145. Gift certificates are available. Gonzales expects customer demand will help extend the company’s contract beyond June.

Currently, services are offered Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. The days may change due to demand or seasonality, says Wolf.

The J spa facility is at 3800 E. River Road, on the second level. Appointments are available by email at ibalance or by calling or texting 809-6955. Payments from Health Savings Accounts and Flexible Spending Accounts are accepted.
