    NEWS:



    WELCOME MEG COLVERT


    I'm thrilled to announce the addition of Meg Colvert to the staff at Stellar Massage. I needed a massage pretty bad and Meg managed to find every spot. She's not afraid to be aggressive and was very responsive to my input. She thoroughly worked my tingly finger trigger point areas. I was also happy to see that she was experienced in Craniosacral Therapy, having taken both CST1 and CST2. I took CST1, and though I was convinced that it's a very effective modality, the gentle touch it required really wasn't my thing. Meg is very versatile and can go from intense to gentle in the space of a breath. Weather you are booking her for a relaxation, deep tissue, or Craniosacral massage session I am confident you will be happy with the experience.

    Check out our Comfort Craft tables!


    We have 2 Comfort Craft Model 800 Mid-Split Electric tables. The mid-split means that the table can bend up to a 40° angle, which aids to open the back (9°) or with a steeper angle can be used to assist in stretching. This is the table under all our padding and sheets in 2 of our 3 rooms.

    NEW COUPLES MASSAGE ROOM: We have rearranged one of our rooms to allow 2 tables to be side by side for a more intimate setting for couples massages. If you book a couples massage you may receive service in this room or our in 2 separate rooms with connecting double doors. If you have a preference for same or separate rooms, please spedify when you book. If we cannot accommodate your request, we will let you know within 24 hours. ________________________________________

    SERVICE DESCRIPTIONS



    Relaxation/Sweedish Massage


    Your choice of unscented, Lavender, or Woodsy Relaxation Blend cream
    Meant to relax your muscles and destress you without using the more painful targeted deep techniques. If you ask for a relaxation massage, I will not target sore muscles unless you ask me to. Let me know if you want a light (I do not want it to hurt at all if possible) or firm (No poking but my muscles hurt and need worked) massage. Swedish Massage is a specific style of massage that uses smooth strokes, kneading, percussion, friction, and vibration.

    DEEP Deep Tissue Massage


    Your choice of unscented or muscle cream
    We are the only ones that I know of that offer this as a menu item. The reason it's so hard to get a good really DEEP deep tissue massage is because some therapists just can't go that deep and also the pressure required puts a lot of strain on a therapist's joints. All that pressure is also being pushed INTO our joints, causing inflammation and damaging the bursa that pads the joints and eventually leads to arthritis. We charge $10 more per half hour because we have to rest longer between massages so we can recover and give the next client our best effort and we also need that extra time to proactively ice, stretch, and rub the overworked muscles and joints.

    So why are we willing to do this? Because we enjoy the challenge these massages offer and we want to give you the massage you need. I'm not trying to discourage you from getting them, but I want you to understand why we are charging more. I've told my therapists that if you don't sign up for it, don't hurt themselves doing it. They need to stop wearing themselves out.

    I previously said this was needed by people with thick dense musculature, and this is true, but we also have quite a few clients who are chronically tight and want and need this kind of pressure. If you sign up for DEEP deep tissue the extra recovery time will automatically be scheduled and you will be charged the fee for DEEP massage even if you end up not wanting that kind of pressure. If you are unsure, schedule a regular deep tissue massage with Chris, Kate, Meg or Myself. We don't call it a DEEP massage if we don't sustain that pressure for long and you will be able to judge if you want more of that kind of pressure the next time. Our pressure from deep to deepest is Meg, Kate, Chris, Jenae, Chris. Chris is listed twice because as a 6'5" male he holds back because he could hurt a person. Tell him not to hold back and instead of being lighter than me, he can be deeper than me.

    Deep Tissue/Neuromuscular/Trigger Point Therapeutic Massage


    Your choice of unscented or muscle cream
    We collectively call this Deep Tissue as Neuromuscular is a deep tissue technique. Deep tissue refers to techniques that probe deep into the tissue and/or that target specific problems in order to break up adhesions and relax and lengthen a muscle. Neuromuscular therapy is used when a muscle impinges on a nerve and results in feelings such as pain, burning, tingling, or numbness in a remote area which is served by that nerve. With this technique, static pressure is applied to the triggerr point to relax the trigger and relieve the pressure. Really sore and tight muscles may be able to take only light pressure, but we would apply it to the pain tolerance level you choose to maximize the benefit of the massage within your selected pain tolerance.


    3 20-Minute Sessions in 8 Days


    Your choice of unscented or muscle cream
    These sessions are for intense work in one area to be completed in 8 days. 20 minutes worked in one area. 3 days later when the tenderness is gone you return for a 2nd session, and 3 days later for a 3rd session. We do not usually offer 20 minute sessions. These have a purpose and any session not completed within 10 days is forfeit.

    Sports Massage


    Your choice of unscented or muscle cream
    Sports Massage is a special form of massage and is typically used before, during, and after athletic events. The purpose of the massage is to prepare the athlete for peak performance, to drain away fatigue, to reduce muscle tension, and to promote flexibility and to prevent injury.

    Craniosacral Therapy


    The Craniosacral System consists of the brain and central nervous system, all enclosed by the dura mater, traveling through the spine and connecting to the sacrum. Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle manipulation of the bones of the head, spinal column and sacrum with a goal of relieving compression of the cranial sutures, restoring the optimal flow of cerebral spinal fluid, and releasing adhesions along the spine and sacrum. Once flow and movement is restored, your body’s natural healing responses can function.

    Sessions generally last from 30-60 minutes. You remain fully clothed and lie on the massage table while your therapist gently assesses and manipulates the bones of the skull, spine and sacrum. Studies have shown that the lighter the pressure, the more effective it is. Some people may only need 1 or 2 sessions to relieve their symptoms, others may need weekly sessions for a month or more followed by monthly maintenance sessions. Your body is the best judge of how often you need to return.

    CST is most effectively used for headaches, migraines, chronic middle ear infection, chronic sinus infection, ADHD, fibromyalgia, and autism. CST practitioners report beneficial results for eye dysfunction, dyslexia, depression, hormonal imbalances, motor coordination difficulties and TMJ. It’s been used with other therapies for chronic fatigue syndrome and menstrual irregularity as well as heart disease, osteoarthritis, pneumonia, rheumatoid arthritis, gastroenteritis, asthma in babies, floppy baby syndrome, whiplash, cerebral palsy and other central nervous system disorders.

    Myofacial Release


    A slower, more gentle alternative to deep work.
    Fascia is connective tissue that lines your skin, muscles, nerves, organs, and even the cells of your body. Fascia runs uninterrupted from the top of your head to the tip of your toes, and like a sweater caught by a nail, tension on one area of fascia can affect areas seemingly unconnected in a more remote area of your body. Ever feel crunchiness when you rub a sore area? That is most likely fascia, which instead of being in a gel like state has become more glue-like and is sticking. Myofascia release is slower and gentler than deep tissue massage. It concentrates on relieving pain by releasing restrictions in the connective tissue and returning it to a gel-like state. It is often combined with muscle energy techniques that gently work and stretch muscles to relax muscle tension, promote flexibility, and increase range of motion. Because it is a slower technique, Myofacial Release is usually a targeted session and not full body.

    Pregnancy Massage


    Relax with a sideline position massage using unscented or Lavender Cream.

    Miscarriage is more common during the first trimester of pregnancy. While massage has not been determined to increase this risk during a normal, healthy pregnancy, your doctor should be consulted prior to receiving massage, especially in the first trimester. Following are some, but not all conditions that require your doctor's permission prior to receiving a pregnancy massage.
    **High Risk Pregnancy
    **Previous pre-term labor
    **Pregnancy Induced Hypertension
    **Preeclampsia
    **Severe Swelling
    **Sudden severe headache
    **Recently gave birth

    Prenatal massage is tailored to the needs of the expectant mother and is safe at any time during pregnancy, though after 13 weeks the mom to be will not be allowed to lie on her stomach. We use pillows to position and support her in a sideline position to ensure that both the mother and baby are as comfortable as possible. Prenatal massage differs in that some parts of the body are avoided and special attention is paid to pregnancy related issues. While we will still work tight muscles, we will go no firmer than a hurts so good on our pain scale. Prenatal massage can reduce stress and anxiety, take away aches that are in the joints and muscles, and lessen swelling in the arms and legs.


    Geriatric/Comforting Touch Massage

    A gentle, very light massage. This is ideal for elderly or ill clients who desire comforting touch and the relaxation and increased circulation it brings.

    Stellar Signature Upgrade

    Enhance your massage with Stellar Massage's signature integration of hot towels and hot stones into your massage.

    Also available is a Respiration Blend cream to clarify nasal passages and ease congestion, has a camphorous aroma

    Custom Aromatherpay Creams

    Custom Aromatherapy Creams are available with at least a days advance notice. Please see list of essential oils available and their properties under the Aromatherapy tab. You must specify the oil(s), I won't mix based on a vague idea, like something floral or good for your skin because I may pick a scent you don't care for. Most oils are at no additional charge, but Jasmine, Sandalwod, and Helichrisium cost 70 cents per drop and Chamomile is 30 cents a drop. I use about 10 drops of oil per application.


    OnSite Chair Massage


    Serving the Birmingham, Alabama Metro Area
    Mobile Massage in your office
    Chair Massage is one of the best ways for employers to show appreciation for their employees and boost morale and productivity. Offering Chair Massage increases satisfaction with the employer, increases loyalty, and leads to a happier work environment. Not only does chair massage lower stress, it addresses muscle tension that distracts employees and reduces productivity. This tension can even lead to injury and time lost from work. You can make chair massage a regular event, part of an employee appreciation day, a perk for those celebrating their anniversary with the company or their birthday month, or part of an office party. Whatever the reason, your employees are sure to be excited!

    Chair massage is not performed at the employees desk, it it performed on a special chair we provide. We will need a small empty office or at least 30 square feet of clear space. A schedule must be prepared ahead of time to ensure that employees know when they are to receive their massage so we can get every one in and leave on time. A 5 minute break each hour must be included in the schedule. Parking must be available on site and must be free or added to the fee.

    You are reserving a specific period of time overall, not per person. If you are not ready for us to set up at the appointed time, or your employees are not ready at their appointed times, their massage time may need to be shortened, but the fee will not be reduced.
