$30 for One 60-Minute Swedish or Deep-Tissue Massage (Up to $75 Value)
Swedish massage uses a series of gentle, flowing strokes to soothe muscles and stimulate circulation throughout the body. Deep-tissue treatments target specific areas with firmer pressure to ease chronic pains.
Soothe Massage Therapy
Even as a young girl, Kate had a knack for kneading away stress. Her talent for easing aches and pains—along with her gift for playing piano—even earned her an appropriate nickname: “Magic Hands.” Later in life, after 13 years of working in retail, Kate realized the full potential of this nickname when she shifted gears and began working as a professional massage therapist.
Today, Kate presides over Soothe Massage Therapy, where she prides herself on customizing treatments for each of her clients. “I like to start out by just having a conversation,” she explains before describing how she uses knowledge of a person’s occupation and lifestyle to respond to individual needs. Rather than limit herself to a single modality, Kate relies on Swedish and deep-tissue techniques to soothe nerves and heal shoulders sore from carrying around backpacks or suits of metal armor.
To help her clients relax, Kate has decorated her studio in a soothing, neutral palette. The notes of a piano or classical guitar mingle with the quiet burbling of a fountain as she begins to work her magic, stroking away tension and removing loose change lodged between shoulder blades.
“Deep massage is great.”
“Most appreciated the no talking, hard to relax when someone is constantly asking questions. Did a terrific job of deep massage.”
