Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
Before your massage, the therapist will place a hot towel on your back. You may listen to your choice of music while you lie on the heated table. Afterward, a mirror makes it easy to check your makeup and hair.
What are some of your most popular services? What do you think clients love them so much?
Swedish massage provides a welcome release from the stresses of a busy life. Prenatal massage allows the mother-to-be to relax and eases the discomforts of a changing body. Trigger point (a form of deep-tissue massage) relieves the taut, shortened muscles challenged by overwork or trauma. Clients love receiving massages because they realize that if they are going to give their best care to others, they need to take care of themselves also.
Essence of Tranquility’s massage therapists rely on an integrated, multimodal approach that targets each client’s unique therapeutic needs. Though they specialize in relaxing, Swedish strokes and firm, deep-tissue pressures, they can also assuage the aches of expectant mothers and bewildered fathers with prenatal massage techniques. Rather than focus solely on muscles, the therapists also tend to joints and connective tissue with sports massages and Rossiter stretching sessions that enable clients to turn around and sniff the aromatherapy oils on their backs. Other soothing add-ons include paraffin wax and stress-melting hot stones, both of which can be enjoyed in house or during an outcall massage.:m]]

Jevona Bailey spent a year living in Hawaii, honing her massage skills and studying various modalities. Now, she shares those skills with clients at Relaxing Now Massage, a healing studio located in the heart of Columbus. When clients first enter, they’re given an intake form where they can list particularly stiff or painful areas of the body. This form helps Jevona to customize a treatment that targets these areas for the best possible pain relief. Treatment options include Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massage, as well as sugar or salt glow to enhance the skin.
With more than 10 years of experience between her scissor blades, stylist Stephanie Mahone has learned how to help clients achieve a full spectrum of looks. On the one hand, she delights in doling out down-to-earth trims; on the other, she can sometimes get a little creative. Clients who entrust their locks into her hands might walk away with anything from a chic bob or a wholly new face-framing style with bold color that edges toward the experimental. It's all up to what the client is looking for, which Stephanie establishes first thing during a consultation.
