    NEWS:


    Welcome Sally Corrado, LMT


    I was blown away by Sally's massage. She has a LOT of knowledge and experience with clinical massage and it shows. She has a wide variety of techniques and tools at her disposal and uses them to the best advantage. She is cautiously aggressive in her approach to get the most benefit while minimizing discomfort. I've been short staffed since September (8 months) and she was definitely worth waiting for. Since I've stopped taking appointments myself, I'm really happy to have someone else who performs myofacial release, cupping, and gua sha (she's more experienced at them than me too). She's also certified in Neruomuscular Therapy/Structural Integration, which we will be adding to our menu along with Lymphatic Drainage and TMJ. Not mentioned in her bio is her interest in Reflexology and aromatherapy. She also brings Esalen and Lomi Lomi techniques to her Relaxation Massages which is unusual in Birmingham. To say I'm pleased to have her join us is an understatement.

    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.

    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.
  • MY CUSTOMER SERVICE PHILOSOPHY


    I believe in treating my clients the way I want to be treated. This simple concept has molded every aspect of Stellar Massage from the customization of each massage, to the equipment used, to the toilet paper in the bathroom. While no single point I make below makes me stand out, I believe the sum of them is what has led to my success.

    If you are paying for a one hour massage, you want to receive a one hour massage. Stuck in traffic and running a couple minutes late? Don't stress. If it's only a few minutes we won't cut your massage short (but please do call and let us know you are running late). We schedule 15 minutes between massages for the client to allow for intake, undressing, dressing, payment, and those few minutes you might run late. We also schedule 15 minutes for the therapist to reset the room, write session notes, rotate laundry, return phone calls, and take a break.

    Ever go get a massage and walk out disappointed because you told them your shoulders hurt and asked for a deep tissue massage and left feeling like you received the therapist's routine massage that didn't do anything to help your shoulders? During your intake we will talk to you (AND listen) about where you are hurting, what your massage experience is, and what kind of massage you want or need. We don't do a "one size fits all" massage. Each massage is customized per our evaluation and adjusted during the massage in response to what we feel and your feedback. Also, we do not charge extra for deep tissue massage. If you asked for a relaxation massage and I find a painful knot, I am not going to offer to work on it for an extra $10. Therapists have a point about charging more for deep tissue massage because it's harder on our hands, but it isn't something I do. Another point relating to the quality of your massage; I will not hire anyone that I would not pay $70 for a one hour massage.

    Not everyone has the time, or can afford, to get massage as often as they need to in order to fix a chronic problem that has been building for months or years. Coming once a month is considered maintenance (if your life is stressful enough, once a week is maintenance). People leave our office and go back to whatever is causing their pain. When they come back a month later, they've lost any headway we've made. If you want to fix a problem, you need to come in more often and/or make a change in your habits, or do something at home to keep from regressing. If you are getting a deep tissue massage, we ask questions, suggest what can be contributing to your problem, and recommend things you can do at home to help yourself. I want you to feel better, and if I can do that by helping you help yourself, then I've succeeded.

    I hate having people impose their sales pitches on me. While I sometimes get enthusiastic about how beneficial the backnobber2 is as a self help tool, or about the Stellar Massage Club having no contract, only discounts, my purpose is not to sell you anything. I stock a few self help items because some people hate ordering on-line or want it now, but I always tell people they can get the backobber2 cheaper on Amazon or Ebay. I stock a few gift items for people who want to give something with the gift certificate they buy, but it is for the client's convenience, it isn't how I make money.

    I think the Stellar Massage Club deserves its own paragraph. I couldn't tell you the number of people who told me they wanted to get regular massage but couldn't afford it or find the time. Many said they tried "the other place's club" only to feel trapped because the therapist they liked was never available, or the quality of the massage went down, or they couldn't get an appointment, and then when their contract finally expired and they cancelled, they couldn't use their banked massages. The purpose of our club is to make it easier for you to get regular massage, not to trap you into a contract. If you've already paid for your massage you are more likely to take the time to get it, and of course the discount makes it a little more affordable, AND you can cancel at any time. Other good things about our club are that if you cancel you can still use banked massages, you can share your massages with other members of your household or a named special someone who doesn't live with you at no additional charge, and you can pause and restart your membership if needed. This is the club I would want to belong to.

    Each room has a robe in case you need to go to the bath room during your massage. There is also a mirror and a basket of travel sized toiletries in case you realize that you just ate lunch and your breath smells like onion, need to remove and reapply your makeup, a brush and comb and hair ties and hair clips. A disinfectant jar for the brush/comb and hair clips. One last point. What's with charging extra for something that has negligible cost and requires no extra time to prep or clean? We don't charge for a few drops of essential oil that only cost a few cents (there are a couple oils that we do charge for because they cost more than gold). We also don't charge for using hot or cold packs that just go back in the freezer or hydrocollator. I understand charging for something that enhances your experience; but the way I see it, you paid for your hour and I'm not going to charge you extra for something I do during that time that doesn't cost me either money or effort. Now, if I'm going to have to do extra prep and laundry, I'm going to charge, so we do charge for the Stellar Upgrade because we have to prep the towels, clean the stones, and do more laundry.

    I love performing massage, and I believe that by following the Golden Rule, success will follow. I've just been doing what I love. It wasn't my goal to go from one room and therapist, to two, then to three, but I've been blessed and I'm following where it leads me, and it has led me to a nice storefront and a fourth therapist. Check out my google reviews, then come see for yourself.
