Founded by two students of the Brenneke School of Massage, Essential Life Therapy pampers its clients with the devoted attention of a cupboard genie. A team of trained practitioners relax tight muscles and clear corpuses of long-standing political tension using a variety of different massage services (all $70; $65 for reiki). Clients can relax under the classic Swedish, push out persistent pains and imbedded javelins with a deep-tissue massage, or try something new with a reflexology or Reiki—a Japanese form that employs gentle touches to heal the body physically, emotionally, and spiritually. All massages begin with a foot-calming bath that doesn’t count as a single minute in your full hour of manual bliss.
Although the licensed therapist at Seattle Maternity Massage specializes in numerous modalities, mothers-to-be are her main focus. Combining hydrotherapy, stretching techniques, and a customized approach that considers the specific needs of each client, she uses prenatal massage to help ease the physical and emotional stress that comes along with pregnancy. Post-natal massage, on the other hand, aids the recovery process by addressing posture, muscle tension, and scar tissue.
