As a mother of two children and a licensed massage therapist, Rebecca Overson believes that "pregnancy can be enjoyed, not just endured." While pregnant with her first child, Rebecca had a hard time finding a bodywork specialist with the skill, sensitivity, and expertise required to meet her changing body's needs. It was this struggle that inspired her to open Salt Lake Prenatal Massage, a place that would provide expert support to other women during and after pregnancy.
Holding certifications in prenatal and postpartum massage, as well as a BA in spiritual psychology, Rebecca uses her personal and professional know-how to guide a staff of other licensed therapists and a pregnancy fitness specialist.

Massage and Fitness SLC helps clients not only build stronger bodies in group exercise classes, but also unwind after their workouts with custom massages. Licensed massage therapist Elizabeth Anne Galloway targets testy areas such as the triceps and glutes with the gliding kneads of Swedish massage as well as the probing motions of the deep-tissue technique. Scalp massages melt away tension using hot oil and pressure-point stimulation, and reflexology sessions activate specific sites on the feet, hands, and ears to promote improved health in corresponding areas of the body, including the liver, bladder, and dorsal fin.
Inside this relaxing oasis, aestheticians and massage therapists infuse their treatments with mineral-rich elements of the Dead Sea. Its mud and salts exfoliate the skin during hammam-style scrubs, which also use olive-oil soaps to cleanse and moisturize. The mud is swept over faces during middle eastern facials, where it works to shrink pores and remove impurities. In addition to these nourishing treatments, the staff beautifies patrons with haircuts, Shellac manicures, and henna tattoos.
