Stressbusters for Staff and Faculty

Stressbusters can provide free brief neck and back rubs at your next staff or faculty event. To request Stressbusters at your event, please complete a Stressbusters event request form. In order to best accommodate your event, we ask that requests be submitted at least two weeks before the scheduled event. We will try our best to fill your request, but please note that Stressbusters events are limited to two events per day. If we are able to fill your request, you will receive a confirmation at least five days prior to the scheduled event.


The Stressbust Yourself Tips provides six quick and easy tips Columbians can use to relax themselves and cope with stress.

Stressbusters bookmarks feature tips from the Stressbust Yourself Toolkit. Bookmarks can be found at Stressbusters events, the Alice! Health Promotion office, and at Columbia University Libraries circulation desks. All resources can be found at Stressbusters events.
