Clean, quiet, and cozy. These are the qualities that one hopes to find at a massage studio, and Baer Essentials Massage & Bodyworks more than fits the bill. The small, newly-opened private office—located in the vibrant Old Orchard area of Webster Groves—features pastel-colored walls, subtle lighting, and colorful bouquets make it a calming setting for visitors to unload stress with massages. The studio’s bread and butter is its signature custom massage, which accounts for the fact that each person is unique, much like a snowflake or a leopard’s fur coat collection. Each kneading session targets the client’s specific aches with a tailored combination of massage techniques and pressure.
