The Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage Syracuse Campus is conveniently located in the Soul Space Building at 719 East Genesee Street, minutes from routes 81 & 690. Owners Van D’Elia & Liz Goldenberg purchased the property at 719 with the intent of creating a building that would be dedicated to holistic health. The architectural firm of Harmony Design was commissioned to help create a space destined to be the gem of the massage industry. The bright, colorful space is adorned with waterfalls, local art, and sculpture.
With available space on the first floor, Van & Liz added a day spa, SpaZend. The Asian-influenced SpaZend can be viewed at www.spazend.com. Additional building tenants are the Center for Spiritual and Cultural Unity, offering classes in yoga and meditation.
Directly across the street from the building is picturesque Forman Park, serving as a combination summer study hall, lounge, and Frisbee area. The campus has also been designated as part of the new “Connective Corridor.” Syracuse University Chancellor Nancy Cantor has pledged to transform the pathway between downtown Syracuse and the University with artwork, sculpture, and live performances. Updates are available at connectivecorridor.syr.edu/.
Within walking distance from the campus are the following:
- Syracuse Stage, with a national reputation for great theatre.
- The Everson Museum (John Lennon & Yoko Ono once had a showing there)
- The Paul Roberson Performing Arts Center – featuring stage performances and gallery art.
Overnight guests have a choice of some of the best hotels in Syracuse. Within a block’s distance are the Marx hotel, the Parkview, and the Genesee Grande.
