Client COVID-19 Precautions



A) Wait time in reception is restricted to 5 minutes prior to your appointment. Your confirmation and reminder emails will include a link to your Intake Forms. 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.

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

C) Please wear a face mask to your appointment. You do not have to wear it while face down on the table.

D) Do NOT enter the office if you have a fever of 100.4 degrees or more, if you have traveled using public transportation in the last 2 weeks, or if you believe you may have been exposed to the Coronavirus within the last 2 weeks and have not tested negative.

E) All clients will be asked screening questions and have their temperature taken and wash their hands. You will wait/fill out forms in the treatment room if available. If you must wait in reception, we have chairs that are socially distant and will be sanitized after use.

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

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

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.

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 touch surfaces after each massage. We have UVC lights that will be used to sanitize the treatment room after each massage. We also have UVC lights for the bathrooms, check out cubby, reception and break room. Pens, clipboards and anything else you touch will be sanitized before use.

7) We will not touch your face with the exception of TMJ work.

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.

Most massage therapists who do not succeed at working independently failed because they couldn't bring enough clients in. There was a time when our communities were smaller and word of mouth was enough to fill your schedule, but in today's world your best client's friends, family and coworkers may not live nearby. When you are competing with chains with national reputations and spas with a large local advertising budget, all of which have prime visible locations, it's a serious challenge to get people know you even exist.

Stellar Massage is designed for Licensed Massage Therapists to work as true independent contractors. I look for people who have a strong desire to succeed and make a career of Massage Therapy as independent practitioners, but who do not want to have the worry of being able to fill their schedules by themselves or making enough to cover overhead and supplies as well as pay their non-business bills. I also look for LMTs who share my customer service philosophy so that clients can expect continuity in the way they are treated regardless of who they schedule with.

The relationship between Stellar Massage LLC and Associated Massage Therapists is symbiotic. Working together benefits us both. For example, instead of working 2 days a week on your personal clients and for someone else 2 or more days a week, limiting your availability to clients at both places, you can contract with Stellar Massage for a 4 or 5 day schedule, making yourself more available to both personal clients and Stellar Massage clients every day. You have a professional, furnished and equipped place to bring your personal clients for a per session fee, and make commission working on my clients. It’s a win-win for both of us because if you are successful at building your personal clientele I will need to hire another therapist (or open another location) so I will have someone to work my clients, or if you do not do well bringing in personal clients you will be more available to work on mine.

I do very well at bringing new clients in. If you Google "Massage Hoover" you will see my website listed in the top unapid listings. I'm also "A" on the Google map. I am rated 4.7* with 148 reviews on Google and 5.0* on Facebook with 99 reviews at the time of writing. I am confident I will continue to rank well because I am always researching ways to improve my website, SEO and marketing, and customer service is a priority.

I don't just rely on my search engine results. Prior to becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist, I was in administration. I gave up a position as Chief Financial Officer and have never looked back. Since I opened Stellar Massage in 2010 I've been growing, learning and evolving. Stellar Massage can compete because when people look at us they see a professional business they can trust. Our phone is answered 24/7 by myself or an answering service I've used since 2013 so people can book over the phone or online at any time, and of course you can book appointments at the office. We have a massage club that encourages clients to come in regularly but doesn't trap them in a contract. We have agreed upon policies that ensures that clients feel they are treated with courtesy and respect, leaving happy and giving good reviews.

My philosophy isn't just to treat clients the way I want to be treated, I also treat my Associate Massage Therapists the way I want to be treated. You get paid on the value of the service, not what my client pays, so you get paid the same regardless of my client's discount. You get enough time between massages for intake, outtake, clients to undress/dress, and to take a break so no one is hurried. You schedule your own breaks and vacations other than breaks needed to ensure rooms are not overbooked. As a true Independent Contractor, everything about our working relationship is included in our contract so we each know exactly what is expected.
