Tap Room 

Tap Room is a relaxation program facilitated by Peer Wellness Educators or Student Health and Wellness Ambassadors. Tap Room is set to be a minimum of 2 hours in length and can be as long as 8 hours.

The Tap Room is a mobile, outreach-based environmental strategy where we set up various evidence based relaxation and stress reduction strategies in your space (office space, conference room, waiting area, etc.) for students, staff, or faculty to practice.  Folks can stop by for as much time as they want to learn about and engage in various relaxation strategies.  All activities have directions for self-directed engagement and learning.  Student volunteers or employees managing the space will be available for questions and as people leave they will provide them with resources for other mental health services on campus.   

Strategies include different relaxation and stress reduction exercises such as:

  • Guided Meditation
  • Biofeedback
  • Light Therapy
  • Aromatherapy 
  • Self Massage Canes
  • Mind Puzzles
  • Journaling Exercises (self-compassion, gratitude exercises)
