Choices, choices... October 07 2013

When it comes to massage therapy and bodywork, there are a range of styles (or "modalities," as we in the massage field like to call them) to choose from.  You have probably heard of deep tissue and Swedish massage... but might be less familiar with modalities like trigger point therapy or myofascial release.

Each of our talented massage therapists at Soulstice Spa brings a unique combination of skills, touch and training, and we encourage our guests to experience as many different styles of bodywork as possible as each has its own benefits.  Not all therapists practice all the modalities we offer - for example, some therapists practice prenatal massage and others do not - but as a group we offer an amazing array of styles and massages.

Here are some of the modalities we offer at Soulstice:

Swedish

Deep Tissue

Sports Massage

Eastern Modalities such as Thai and Shiatsu

Reiki and energy work

Myofascial Release

Reflexology

Trigger Point

Hot Stone

Aromatherapy 

Instead of attempting to put all these massage styles on a menu, we opt to keep things simple and utilize a *pricing system that is consistent and easy to follow.  In other words, we don't charge more or less for deep tissue, for example --- we want each therapist to have the freedom to customize their massage for whatever will best serve the client. 

(*The only massages that are priced differently are Hot Stone and Aromatherapy massages)

We encourage you to try different styles and practitioners... if you're stumped on which one to pick, let us know the answer to the following question:  How do you want to feel during and after your massage??   Relaxed?  Energized?  Nurtured?  Specific pain point addressed?  Emotionally balanced?  By giving us a description about how you'd like to feel, we're happy to recommend a modality that would best suit your goals.  Try something new during your next massage... give it a try!
