I'm a new mom, and I don't get a lot of "me" time. For Christmas, my husband gave me a gift certificate for a deep tissue massage at Essential Therapy. It was exactly what I needed. When I arrived, I was given a comfy robe and slippers to change into, plus a cup of hot herbal tea. I took my tea into the Tranquility Room, a dim, quiet space with low couches and a large aquarium. The peace and quiet made me forget my stressful morning and relax.
The masseuse came and escorted me to a private room, then left me to arrange myself on the massage table with a large towel she provided. For a full hour, she massaged all of the body areas I'd indicated on the check-off list (you can tell the masseuse to avoid any areas you're not comfortable with). Apart from some relaxing instrumental music, my massage was conducted in blissful silence.
That's the only service I've used at Essential Therapy; you can see their other services at www.essentialtherapy.com.
