At The Massage Place, prices are reduced but services are not. This is because they recognize that people don?t come for the spa atmosphere. They come simply to get a massage. In avoiding those costs, they can pass the savings on to you.
The Massage Place refuses to offer a million specialty treatments. You can’t get a manicure, pedicure or facial here. They won’t cut your hair or color it. They will, however, offer you an amazing massage at a reduced price. The types of massage offered at The Massage Place include Swedish, deep tissue, reflexology, Thai, sports, acupressure and pregnancy massage.
Swedish massage is a type of massage that many people enjoy. In fact, it is by far the most common massage offered at The Massage Place. It involves soothing strokes and manipulations that are designed to relax muscles, relieve tension, improve the flow of blood, and stimulate the lymphatic system.
Deep tissue massage breaks the cycle of stress, tension and pain by relaxing the muscles, improving circulation and bringing the body to a state of neuromuscular balance. Deep tissue massage was designed to relieve muscular pain, address soft tissue injuries and increase range of motion. It uses slower strokes with more direct pressure across the grain of muscles.
Reflexology is a great massage for people who do not like massage. It uses only the feet but creates all over body wellness. The foot, with its 7,000 nerve endings, effects the health of the entire body. Reflexology capitalizes on this by rubbing certain areas depending on the needs and symptoms of the customer.
Thai massage is a very different form of massage. It involves gently stretching the muscles. It tends to be rigorous rather than relaxing. You lie on the floor and the therapist uses his hands, feet and body to massage and stretch you.
Sports massage is designed with the serious athlete in mind. It focuses on muscles used for a particular activity. Along with relieving pain, tension and stress, it also prevents injuries.
Acupressure, also known as shiatsu, is a Chinese based therapy based on the principles of acupuncture. The therapist pushes on specific pressure points to relieve a variety of symptoms. By stimulating the body’s energy pathways, also known as meridians, it provides a wonderful sense of relaxation, consciousness and wellness.
Finally, pregnancy massage is designed for the new mother in your life. This massage helps to increase blood flow, relaxing both mother and child. Postpartum, it can help her relax, regain her composure and increase muscle tone in the abdominal area.
Eliminating the spa atmosphere and the other services offered by a typical day spa allows The Massage Place to offer their customers the lowest possible rate. In addition, the amount of time they state is truly the length of a massage. The 1 hour massage is 60 minutes. It is not 45, 50 or even 59 minutes long. Here is a listing of their prices:
- 30 minutes: $37
- 60 minutes: $47
- 90 minutes: $67
If you go to the spa for the atmosphere, this isn’t the place for you. Liewise, if you want to get your hair and nails done at the same time, this isn’t for you. If, however, you simply want a truly great massage, The Massage Place is your ideal spa.
