Wellness Services Overview

Wellness Services Available to the Public:

Massage Therapy: The WellWorks licensed massage therapists can help you: get relief from muscle pain and soreness; alleviate stress, and; detoxify—both mentally and physically. We currently offer 30, 60 and 90 minute massages 7 days per week.

Nutrition: The world of nutrition can seem so complex and confusing. Let our Registered Dietitian Nutritionist help you navigate the science and meet your wellbeing needs. We provide a variety of services, including: nutrition counseling and special programs/workshops.

Bod Pod and Functional Movement Screening: Assessing one's body composition and movement quality can greatly enhance performance and quality of life. Utilize these services to boost your wellness habits and improve your quality of life 

Produce Buying Club: University employees, students and community members are invited to participate in the WellWorks Produce Buying Club with weekly pick-up on Ohio University's Athens Campus in the Walter Hall parking lot. The program is managed by Rural Action and all produce is purchased from local farmers at the Chesterhill Produce Auction. This wholesale model of a Buying Club allows for a greater diversity in the produce received each week, which can be a limiting factor of a traditional CSA. It also allows you to opt-out of certain weeks that you know you'll be out of town AND opt-in even after it has started. With such flexibility, this program caters to a wide audience!

HeartWorks: In conjunction with Ohio Health O’Bleness Hospital we offer a cardiopulmonary rehabilitation program designed to help participants recover quickly and enhance their quality of life. Together, our team of experts will work with you to develop and oversee a rehabilitation program that is customized to your needs and goals. Physician referral required.

Wellness Services for University Employees/Spouses/Partners: 

Risk Reduction: Searching for a lifestyle makeover? Risk Reduction is a comprehensive approach to your wellness through prevention and rehabilitation of lifestyle diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. Inactivity, excess body weight, stress, high blood pressure, and poor blood sugar control are just some of the factors that put your health and wellness at risk. All of these risk factors may be reduced by healthy living!

Discounts on Virtual Wellbeing Memberships:  Please be advised that the 100 Day Challenge will not continue as it has in previous years. We are currently waiting on direction regarding the possibility of an incentive based program similar to 100 Day Challenge or the development of a new employee wellbeing offering. In response to this uncertainty, and to better support our employees, WellWorks is offering current Ohio University employees a 30% discount on all Virtual Memberships.

Health and Wellness Coaching:  University employees looking for support from a Health and Wellness Coach can schedule an appointment in the WellWorks Portal. Use your OHIO Single Sign On (SSO) to log-in to the portal and select "Appointment Services."
