Client COVID-19 Precautions



A) You cannot wait in the reception area. You must wait in your car until called by your therapist. Please be waiting in the parking lot at least 5 minutes prior to your appointment time.

B) If you have a face mask, please take it with you to your appointment as you will be asked to wear it while on the table and not face down.

C) Do NOT enter the office if you have a fever of 100.4 degrees or more, or if you believe you may have been exposed to the Coronavirus within the last 2 weeks. You will not be charged if you cancel prior to your appointment.

D) When you enter the office, we will take your temperature using a no-contact thermomether, then please proceed directly to the bathroom to wash your hands.

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

F) Please pay by credit or debit card if possible.

G) Maintain a 6 foot distance from others, with the exception of your therapist.

H) Since cloth chairs and carpet cannot be properly sanitized between clients, we have paper or towels to put on the chairs and have socks (optional) that you can wear so your bare feet don't have to touch the carpet. We can remove the socks when we massage your feet.

Our COVID-19 Precautions



1) We will not come to work if we have a fever, symptoms or believe we have been exposed to the virus. If we don't come to work, we will try to get another therapist to take your appointment.

2) We will wear face masks when we are within 6 feet of you and wear a clean "smock" for each client. (I interpret this as we can change shirts, not that we have to wear an apron)

3) We have removed the fleece face pillow pads and replaced the cloth covered face pillows with vinyl ones. We have a protective barrior covering the padding on the table that can be sanitized between clients.

4) We will no longer use blankets unless you ask for one, and if you do, it will be clean and washed again before being used for another client.

5) As always, we will use clean linens for each client and wash our hands/arms before and after each massage.

6) We will sanitize (door knobs, pens, light switches, jewelry caddies, bathroom fixtures, credit card terminal, etc.) after each massage.

7) We have ordered UV lights which will be used daily to thoroughly sanitize each treatment room. This will sanitize all surfaces, including the carpet, drapes and chairs.

7) We will not touch your face. Exception: Becca will continue to offer TMJ work because she always wears gloves when she is doing it. She will also wear a face mask if she can find any.

CBD Lotion Upgrade

Up to 100mg CBD $10
We can also sell you a 30ml jar with 1500mg CBD in lotion for $100. You can dilute with lotion if you don't want it as potent. Certificate of Analysis available here.

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.

  • STELLAR MASSAGE



    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.

    My philosophy on Customer Service and Working for Stellar Massage


    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.

    Birmingham School of Massage 2019

    Bio from Jordan:

    Jordan is new and her bio will be here soon. She impressed me with a very thorough deep tissue massage. Her prior experience was with a recovery clinic attached to a gym. She can work deep and would be my first choice for Sports Massage

    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.

    Christopher Bradley, LMT, License #4086


    Birmingham School of Massage 2014

    Bio from Chris:


    My name is Chris Bradley and I'm a graduate of Birmingham School of Massage. I'm a local resident, born and raised in the Birmingham area. I've got a strong desire to always improve my understanding of the world, and do my best to help make it a better place. I love massage in particular because it lets me work with my hands and be of service to others! I'll always do my best to give you the best work I can!


    Kim Miles, LMT, License # 1811


    Virginia College, Associates of Applied Science (Massage Therapy) 2004

    Bio from Kim:


    Hello all! First, thank you for taking the time to read my bio. Honestly, it took me a few years to decide on what I wanted to do after high school. I enjoy meeting and getting to know people, and am fascinated by the way the body functions, but have always struggled with a bit of shyness and an aversion to loud, fast paced environments. After much research, I had such a good feeling that massage therapy could balance those strengths and weaknesses, that I enrolled myself in training before I had even had my first massage! In the nearly 2 decades that have followed, that decision has served me well. In a few days, I will celebrate my 16th year as a Licensed Massage Therapist. In that time I have also pursued and achieved the goal of becoming Board Certified in Massage Therapy and Bodywork. Its currently the highest national credential that a massage therapist can aspire to in our field, and I am happy to serve you in this capacity.

    I remain in awe of the body's natural ability to heal itself. Sometimes it just needs a gentle push in the right direction. It's my pleasure to work with you, 1 on 1, in an envoronment conducive to helping you achieve your individual goals (short and long term). So, what do you need? Help in easing the postural imbalances that contribute to ailments like back, neck and hip pain? Some relaxation and rejuvenation? I can't send you on all expense paid trip to a tropical island, but I can give you some time away from the stresses that are all too common today. Or do you prefer a thorough deep tissue massage? Well that just so happens to be my favorite kind of massage to give (and get too!). There are so many massage modalities out there, and I strive to add to my knowledge of the field every year with frequent continuing education. I look forward to finding the perfect combination of techniques just for you. Mentally and physically, we all desire to perform optimally in our day to day life. Let's reach that goal together!


    Elaina LaBoone, LMT, License # 5396


    Birmingham School of Massage 2019

    Bio from Elaina:


    Hello! I am Elaina LaBoone and I am from Birmingham, Alabama. I graduated from Birmingham School of Massage in August 2019. I was drawn to massage because I believe it can be such a powerful form of natural healing and during my time massaging I have seen the positive effects it has had on people. I strive give my best energy and hardest work to every client.



    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 $70 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.

    Pressure:

    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, Kim/Becca, Chris, Jenae. Our DEEP pressure, deep to deepest are Becca/Kim, Jenae, Chris. 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 othersuse it as well and are quite good, they just tend not to use it as prolifically. Jeane and Becca use more 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 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 and Chris gives the smoothest. Becca does Reflexology.

    Geriatric:

    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.

    Pregnancy:

    Rachel (she LOVES prenatal massage) and Becca 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.

    Hot Stone:

    Becca, Rachel and Kim are the ones who do this. 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 (Jenae does the Stellar Upgrade, but not Hot Stone).

    Reflexology:

    Becca is the only one to offer this service.

    Reiki:

    Becca is the only one to offer Reiki.

    TMJ:

    Becca and Rachel are the only ones to offer this as a separate service. They work inside and outside the mouth. They offer it as a 15 minute add-on, and as a 30 minute service. The 30 minute session includes instruction on how you can do it yourself. The rest of us will include outside the mouth techniques during our massage when appropriate during a massage, but do not offer it as a separate service.

    Cupping:

    Rachel specializes in cupping and would be my first choice. Jenae also does cupping, but not as extensively. 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.
