A Full Hour
A 60 minute massage is 60 minutes of massage. It feels weird to have to clarify that, but it’s not the case for every business. Massage Envy’s hour is only 50 minutes. Even some full service spas operate on a 50-minute hour. But in my office, treatments last exactly as long as indicated. (Unless you’re late, then I may have to adjust accordingly.)
That’s a whole hour, just for you.
Personalized for you
For a whole hour, you are the reason we’re in the room. No ringing phone, email alerts, or people demanding your attention.
You get your massage therapist’s full attention. We don’t have a set routine that we use for every client, every time. Each time you come in, we’ll ask what your needs are that day. We’ll check in a few times during the massage, and you should feel free to speak up if you need us to change what we’re doing. Need silence? An extra blanket? A full hour foot massage? Done. It’s a massage your way.
Ease of Scheduling
I rarely think of scheduling massage at a time that is actually convenient to call. Or I do, but I get voicemail and have to play phone tag. That’s why we have convenient online scheduling. You can schedule your massage online right here. And if you don’t see a time that works for you, send us an email with some times you’re looking for and maybe we can make it work. If we can’t make it work, we can refer you to another therapist whose schedule works better for you. We get massage frequently, so we know a lot of great local massage therapists.
If you prefer, you can call us at 217-552-1670 to schedule. (We may need to play a bit of phone tag since we may need to call you back between clients.)
Commitment to High Quality Massage
We’re continually learning more to make your massage top notch. We’ve done hundreds of massages. They were all just prep for your massage.
Your comfort is a priority. We’ve got pillow/towel propping tricks to keep you cozy laying on your side if you can’t lay on your stomach or your back or if you can’t breathe with your face in the face cradle. We got this. We will get you cozy so you can fully relax and enjoy your massage.
We won’t practice any techniques that are unsafe for you and your health condition. In general, people on blood thinners shouldn’t be getting massage with very firm pressure. Ditto for folks with osteoporosis. It’s also unwise to use hot stones on people who have had lymph nodes removed. These are called contraindications. And we won’t mess around with them.
Very rarely, massage in general may not be a good idea for you and we will be unable to give you a massage. But we can almost always adapt the massage so it’s safe and effective for you.
No Hassle Loyalty Program
If you get your next (hour or longer) massage within six weeks of your last one, you save $10. Save $5 for 30 minute massages. We track it for you. No monthly subscription. No card to remember and keep track of.
High quality massage oil, cream, and lotion
Have you ever left a massage feeling slimy or greasy? Not here. Mostly, we use Hobacare Jojoba. It’s not actually an oil, it’s a wax ester, and it’s pretty close to your skin’s natural oil.
Have you ever had a reaction to a product you put on your skin? I have pretty sensitive skin so I’m careful about what I put on it. Pure jojoba is also non-allergenic. The rest of the lotions and spa products we use come from companies that value natural ingredients and skip skin irritating fillers.
You get to support a local business
Locally owned and operated. Just a tiny local business with awesome massage therapists making a living, and participating in the same communities they serve. When you pay for a massage, you can be certain that money is staying in the local economy.
