    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
    DEEP deep tissue is meant for the person with thick, dense musculature. These are people whose musculature is so thick that they usually don't show defined muscles and knots are hard to find and get to through the thick mass. They have a hard time getting a massage as deep as they need not because the therapist is lazy or doesn't know how to do a deep tissue massage, but because they are so dense the therapist just can't do it, or can't do it with a reasonable amount of effort.

    Most of the people who have signed up for DEEP Deep Tissue massage don't really need to be in this category. Perhaps they sign up for it because they've had a hard time getting a real deep tissue massage in the past. People who work out at the gym regularly and have well defined, cut musculature generally don't need this kind of pressure. When you sign up for DEEP Deep Tissue it limits your options of therapist and you may be told there is nothing available when another capable therapist has an opening they'd love you to fill.

    The only people we have who perform DEEP Deep Tissue massage are Chris, Kate and myself (Jenae). This is because we work the deepest. All of our therapists are capable of giving good deep tissue massages with Ally only slightly behind us in pressure and Kerri a bit behind them (we all have about 100 pounds on her, which gives us an unfair advantage.) I don't want to give the impression Kerri can't go deep. I have received deep tissue massage from Kerri and I had to ask her to lighten up. She's great at working out your issues or I wouldn't have brought her on board.

    What we are finding is that the people who do truly need DEEP Deep Tissue Massage give us enough of a workout that we require more time after the massage to rest and recover so that our next client gets our best effort. As a result, we are raising our rates for DEEP Deep Tissue Massage by $10 every 30 minutes to take into account the extra effort, recovery time, and self care required as a result of performing these massages.

    If you sign up for it and don't require that kind of effort, we are not going to reduce the rate because the extra recovery time we have scheduled could have been used to work on someone else. If you don't sign up for it, don't expect your therapist to put in that kind of work without having adequate recovery time. If you are unsure, schedule a regular massage and see if you are happy with it (Don't forget to communicate with your therapist and tell her/him you want them to go deeper. They'll tell you if they can't do it or if next time you need to sign up for DEEP Deep Tissue.)

    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.

    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.

    The 30 Minute Facial Consists of: Cleansing, Steam with deep exfoliation mask or scrub, extractions if necessary, hand and arm massage including moisturizer (with sunscreen if daytime), and a facial moisturizer with face massage.

    The 60 Minute Facial Consists of: Cleansing, Steam with deep exfoliation mask or scrub, extractions if necessary, hand and arm massage including moisturizer, treatment mask (replenishing/nourishing) with neck and shoulder massage, and a facial moisturizer with face massage.

    Diamond Dermabrasion
