Request a Stressbusters Event

Read Before You Request an Event

Please complete all fields on the event request form to the right and press SUBMIT when you are finished. We will respond to your request within approximately one week of your electronic submission. We will make our best effort to honor your Stressbusters event request. Our ability to do so depends on the availability of our volunteer student Stressbusters.

Event Host Responsibilities/Event Requirements


Stressbusters events can be held in quiet locations such as lounges and conference rooms, or in higher-traffic areas including lobbies and walkways. Wherever you would like to locate your event, there must be enough room for several Stressbusters to move around, and for their Stressbustees to have space to enjoy their back rubs in relative peace. You will also need a designated waiting area that is far enough away from Stressbustee chairs to avoid distracting Stressbusters and those receiving back rubs. Additionally, a secure space for Stressbusters’ belongings will be needed.

Chairs and Table

You are responsible for providing standard stationery or folding chairs with firm back support; the number of chairs that you will need will be determined by the Stressbusters program coordinators. You will also need to provide a table or countertop for event-related materials and wellness information.


You will need to provide a staff person or volunteer to greet backrub recipients, manage the waiting area, call next backrub recipients, provide handouts, etc., if asked to do so by the Stressbusters program or a Stressbusters Event Captain.

Event Promotion

Event hosts are responsible for promoting an event to their constituents.  The Stressbusters program can provide event promotion assistance.


Event hosts are responsible for event clean up and breakdown of any materials or equipment not brought to the event by Stressbusters.
