One of the most relaxing things in the world is to have a professional massage. Unfortunately, they're very costly and the college budget is tight. However, there is a cheaper option.

Most massage schools don't just release their pupils into the jungle of the big city unprepared. Call your local massage school and ask about their rates for student-conducted practice massages. They're just as good as real massages and come at a MUCH reduced cost.

Typically, a professional massage costs somewhere in the area of $150/hour. At a massage school, the cost is typically around $25/hour. That's one-sixth of the cost, and financial-as well as physical-relaxation.
