To reduce time in reception, please download them and fill them out prior to your appointment. If you can't fill them out ahead of time, please arrive 5 minutes early to fill them out as intake forms must be complete prior to your appointment time to avoid cutting into your massage time.

C) We aren't heartless. You can come in to use the bathroom any time.

D) Do NOT enter the office if you have a fever of 100.4 degrees or more.

E) Intake and outtake will be done in the treatment room to limit contact with other clients.

Our COVID-19 Precautions

1) We will not come to work if we have a fever or are sick. If we don't come to work, we will try to get another therapist to take your appointment.

2) We will wear a face mask if you would like us to.

Oncology Massage:

Oncology Massage is massage that is customized for the unique needs of someone receiving treatment, or who has received treatment for cancer. Damage to the lymphatic system, effects from chemotherapy and radiation treatment, ports, medical devises... all need specific adjustments made to the massage even decades after treatment.. I have received the special training to make the adjustments needed and now offer Oncology Massage. You must fill out the "Oncology Client Health Form" and return it a few days prior to your first massage.

We Have Moved!

We have moved to the Diamondhead building in the Hoover Court Shopping Center, behind Wells Fargo in the white office building. It is on the far left of the same shopping center as the Jefferson County Revenue Office.

We have a 4th treatment room, a larger couple's room, and a bathroom off reception. Clients will also find that they have more privacy as the rooms open onto an interior hallway separate from reception.

I've also purchased two spa tables for the comfort of those who cannot comfortably lie flat on their backs. For prenatal clients, this allows us to work your neck and shoulders better while you recline.

We Have a Wait List!

Our booking service includes a wait list.

If we are booked for the time you would like. You can specify what therapist, date and time period you would like to be wait listed for. If we have an opening come up, we will call and/or email that we have an opening and the first to respond will get the spot.

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 4 rooms.

    Who Should I Choose?


    Stellar Massage was established in June of 2010 by Jenae Jeffers. As we grow, we've moved into larger facilities and we have been located in our current location since August 2019. The office is decorated in a relaxing home-like décor, but is not spa-like. We offer your basic relaxation, deep tissue, neuromuscular, sports, prenatal, and hot stone massages as well as oncology massage. Depending on or our current staff, we may offer other modalities as well. Heat packs are used when indicated and it does not interfere with the massage at no extra charge as well. We also do off-site chair massage.

    Please read about each of our therapists to determine which will most suit you. Every therapist at Stellar Massage is capable of giving a good deep tissue massage, but each has their indivicual styles and some have deeper pressure than others.
    You can also look under the "Who Should I Choose" link for a summary by category to save you time.

    We were named as one of "Alabama's Top Rated Local Massage Therapists" in 2019.

    Rachel Weeks, LMT, License #5115

    Rexburg College of Massage 2014

    Bio from Rachel:

    Hi, my name is Rachel Weeks. I’ve been practicing since 2014 when I graduated from the Rexburg College of Massage Therapy in Idaho. My family moved all the way from Idaho to Alabama in 2017 for my husband’s work and have been loving it here ever since. I specialize in deep tissue, swedish/relaxation, prenatal, and cupping. I’m also trained in aromatherapy, sports massage, reflexology, acupressure, and cranial sacral therapy to name a few.

    I became interested in massage when I was pregnant with my third child and experienced a lot of back pain and discomfort. Luckily, I received a very relaxing prenatal massage and was impressed by how much it helped alleviate my back tension. Later, we were at a little fair in Rexburg when I came across a booth advertising their newly opened massage therapy school. I took the flier home and couldn’t get the idea out of my head! A year later I finished massage school and couldn’t be happier about that decision.

    I felt drawn to massage because I am naturally nurturing and aware of people’s needs. It is very rewarding to help facilitate the relief of muscle tension and pain. Plus, I love how excited my clients are to see me for their appointments!

    My focus as a massage therapist is to tune in to my clients’ needs completely so that the deepest relaxation and most effective healing experience can be achieved. I strive to apply an intuitive, warm, and soothing touch that will leave you feeling like your best self.

    Robert Ginwright, LMT, License #5596

    Birmingham School of Massage 2017

    Bio from Robert:

    I've always had a passion for healing and therapy from a young age. This has led me to certify myself in Massage and Yoga. I'm a graduate of Birmingham School of Massage 2017 and a graduate of Birmingham Yoga 2015. Active therapy(Yoga) and Passive therapy(Massage) are two different approaches that meet in the middle. Deep Tissue/Swedish Massage techniques along with openess to receive equals optimal balance and relief. My goal with each client is simple, to leave feeling much better then when you arrived, Period!

    Becca Rose Overstreet, LMT, License #3122

    Birmingham School of Massage 2010

    Bio from Becca:

    I was drawn to massage from an early age, but after being diagnosed with scoliosis at the age of 13, I began searching for solutions and methods to help with the chronic pain it caused. That's when I discovered the power of massage. Throughout my life I sought out new techniques and practiced on whomever I could. After graduating from high school in Columbus, Georgia, I moved to Birmingham where I graduated from the Birmingham School of Massage in 2010 - in the same class as our founder, Jenae Jeffers.

    Over the course of my career as a licensed massage therapist, I have obtained certifications in Neuromuscular Therapy, Deep Tissue, Reiki, and Hot Stone. In addition to those, I've received training in Active Isolated Stretching, Swedish, Prenatal and Reflexology. All of these have opened doors and afforded me opportunities, like teaching seminars to medical professionals and working backstage at many events where I have met or massaged big names like Scottie Pippin, Charlie Daniels, Rick Medlock, Greg Allman, OAR, and many others.

    While I love the relaxing, calming effects that massage has on our bodies, I excel in Deep Tissue and Neuromuscular Therapies. Chronic pain is, after all, my inspiration. The most rewarding thing about my work is when I can truly help someone gain a better quality of life and lighten their burdens. During every massage, I incorporate different techniques (drawing from my metaphorical "toolbox") to suit the needs of the client and strive to provide relief from chronic pain and injury while also promoting relaxation and healing.

    I am more grounded in western rather than eastern medicine - in that I believe that massage and bodywork should always incorporate a working knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathology. However, during my career and education, eastern medicine has surprised me in its effectiveness and the results it can produce. This is particularly true of Reflexology and Reiki. I have found that Reiki, a form of energy work, can aid in relaxation and healing by helping improve the flow of energy throughout the body. Reflexology can also help to relieve pain, tension, speed recovery times and virtually eliminate symptoms and side-effects. My personal experiences with Reiki and Reflexology include accelerated healing times, deeper sleep, emotional comfort, and relief from nausea and headaches. Because of my own experiences, I truly believe that both Reiki and Reflexology will make excellent additions to your massage and bodywork routine.

    Jenae Jeffers, LMT, License #3048

    Birmingham School of Massage, 2010

    My Massage History

    My interest in massage therapy began in 1991 after I was struck by a semi on the interstate and I received massage therapy twice a week as part of my treatment. After my recovery, I began to practice what I learned on friends and family. I find giving massage to be very relaxing, and much better than squeezing a stress ball. In 2009 I was massaging a massage therapist friend of mine who was going through med school, and she said "You're better than the girl I trade with, why don't you go to school and get licensed so that you can get paid for this?" It was a no-brainer moment. All I could think was "why not?" It hadn't occurred to me to do something that wasn't administrative.

    I graduated from the Birmingham School of Massage in March 2010. I became Nationally Certified and received my license in June 2010 and immediately started Stellar Massage. I am certified in Massage Therapy, Neuromuscular Therapy, and Hot Stone Therapy. I have received continuing education in Oncology Massage, Myofacial Release, Thai Yoga Massage, Muscle Energy Technique, Cupping, Facial Massage, and Aromatherapy. I've also received training in Stretching and Craniosacral Therapy but they don't really suit me and I rarely use them.

    My Massage Philosophy

    I am securely grounded in the western philosophy regarding massage, incorporating knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology to address stress and soft tissue pain. This means that I base my style on the physical, not metaphysical. While I know about chi and meridians and recognize that as beings made up of atoms we probably all do have an electrical field, I am not attuned to it.

    My Massage Style

    I spent almost 20 years doing massage by touch, feeling the tension and knots and manipulating the muscle. I still prefer to directly manipulate the muscle rather than stretch it and tend to be firm in my massages. That being said, if you tell me that you want a light relaxation massage and don't want it to hurt, I can do that too (just make sure you tell me so I can switch mentally from "fix it" to "pamper").

    When I do deep tissue I have light, medium, deep and DEEP (and anywhere between if you ask me to go lighter or deeper). Most of my targeted work is medium to deep, but if your previous therapist didn't go deep enough, you may want to give me a try because if you indicate you want me to go deep, I can go very deep. I feel that you paid for a massage, and if during the interview you said that you have sore areas that need particular attention, then I'm not doing my job if I don't work it as well as I can within your pain tolerance. When I speak of your pain tolerance, I don't want to see how much pain you can take, I mean a 6-8 on my pain scale.

    On Call Therapists:

    I (Jenae) am usually the on-call therapist when we are fully staffed and I'm not filling the role of regular staff, but we occassionally work with other therapists who want to pick up some extra massage hours by helping us when one of our therapists takes time off, is sick, or has an emergency. Please be assured that I am well aware that my reputation is on the line every time a massage is given and every therapist is screened and has proven they can give a really good deep tissue massage. I do not put a bio on this page for these therapists, but while they are actively available, you can see their bio on our on-line booking site.

    Who Should I Choose?

    The answer to this is more a question of style preference than who is better because I will not hire anyone that doesn't give me a good, responsive deep tissue massage. If I wouldn't pay $80 for it, I don't expect you to, and I like to get my moneys worth. I have specifically hired people who have a preference for therapeutic work because that is what I built my reputation on and I want to maintain that reputation. If you like relaxation massages I'm certain we have a therapist that will suit you since our styles vary on that as well.

    Our personal massage styles are a mixture of what we learned in school, our continuing education, what we personally like in a massage, moves we create or pick up from other therapists, and feedback from our clients. One client may think one therapist is "better" than the other, while another client will think the opposite, depending on personal preferences. So, the best way to answer this question is to point out some style differences.

    Since we can't describe all our different "moves", another way to choose is to try each therapist and just pick the one who suits you best; you don't have to stick with the first therapist you try. Every therapist at Stellar Massage is confident in his/her ability as a massage therapist. Each of us have our dedicated clients who don't want to go to anyone else, so our egos are safe. We recognize that no matter how good we are, some people will like our style and others won't or will simply prefer another. Please don't think any of us will feel insulted or hurt if you choose to try (and stay with) another of our therapists.


    Most therapists at Stellar Massage can adjust their pressure from light to very firm/deep depending on your stated preferences and input during the massage. We rely on your feedback during the massage to adjust our pressure to your needs because while we can feel the knots and tension, everyone responds in their own way and we can't determine your pain without your input. Our base pressures, from lightest to deepest are: Elaina, Rachel, Laura/Bobbie, Becca, Jenae, Robert. Our DEEP pressure, deep to deepest are Laura/Bobbie, Becca, Jenae, Robert. Elaina and Rachel don't do DEEP deep tissue.

    If you have thick, dense musculature and want a DEEP deep tissue massage, I have made a different service category for it so we can schedule extra time after for your therapist to recover. I am not talking about well developed/toned muscles (someone who works out at the gym every day), I'm talking about overdeveloped (think Football player, stone mason, etc ...). I'd like to say this is the person who feels like no one ever goes deep enough, but unfortunately that is usually a reflection on the quality of the massages previously received not the amount of pressure you need. Please don't be shy about asking us to lighten our pressure just because you asked for a DEEP massage.

    Neuromuscular Therapy:

    All therapists at Stellar Massage integrate Neuromuscular techniques into their deep tissue massages as necessary. Becca and Jenae tend to use it quite a bit when performing deep tissue massage. The others use it as well and are quite good, they just tend not to use it as prolifically. Jeane and Becca use more targeted finger pressure.

    Relaxation Massages:

    None of us will do a light "lotion rub" massage unless you specifically state you want it that light. All of our styles vary, but we can all adjust our pressure as you desire. Becca gives more of a flowing "serenity" type relaxation massage. Becca or Elaina may add a bit of Reiki at the end. Chris,and Jenae tend to perform "Firm Relaxation" massages where you get strong pressure that may hurt briefly as our strokes move over a sore muscle, but we don't stop and poke and prod. It is ideal for relaxing tense, overworked muscles without the more painful targeted techniques of a deep tissue massage.

    Foot Massage:

    We offer this as an add-on. If you love foot massage, Becca and Jenae give the firmest. Becca does Reflexology.


    Rachel and Elaina would be my first choices since they have the gentlest touches and manner. This is also known as Adaptive Massage or Comforting Touch.


    Rachel (she LOVES prenatal massage) and Elaina would be my first choices on this. That being said, if you hurt and don't want to just be pampered I think you would be happy with any of us. Chris does not do pregnancy massage.


    Bobbie and Robert are most likely to incorporate stretching into their massages.


    Due to her extensive EMT training, Bobbie would be my first choice.

    Hot Stone:

    Hot stones are used for the massage, but we do not do placement stones like you see in the pretty pictures. Our insurance does not allow us to place stones directly on your skin, so we keep them in our hands and moving. If you want the pampering of heat as well as more traditional massage, see the Stellar Upgrade.


    Becca is the only one to offer this service.


    Becca and Elaina are the only ones to offer Reiki.


    Becca, Bobbie and Rachel are the ones who offer this as a seperate 30 minute service or 15 minute add-on and work inside and outside the mouth. The 30 minute session may include instruction on how you can do it yourself. The rest of us do TMJ work outside the mouth only.


    Rachel and Laura are both experienced in cupping and offer it as a seperate service. Robert, Jenae and Bethany also do cupping, but not as extensively and don't offer it as a seperate service. Short and sweet, cupping is a myofacial technique using cups to create a vacuum and release adhesions. Cupping is likely to leave purple bruise like marks.
