1. The ambiance was amazing--very peaceful and inviting.
2. Rachel seem to have an x-ray vision for spotting knots. She was able to find these tension points very skillfully throughout the body, and then do her massage "magic" to ease the pain.
3. I loved the entire experience at the Elements Massage. Thank you!
Deep tissue massage is actually DEEP. Usually masseuses do not press hard enough, but my masseuse at Elements was not afraid to put a lot of pressure in and actually listened to my answer that it was not too hard and felt good. I still feel a lot better and can move my head and arms around more now, 3 days after! Also liked that the masseuse moved my limbs into position as needed, so I didn't have to think about it.
I also appreciate being taught stretches and self-massage techniques to help with the type of muscle tightness I have.
I like that the massage was personalized to which areas I had problems with, but still quickly touched the rest of my body areas, so I left with my problem areas being much less problematic, but still felt sensorily well-balanced.
The bottle of water and chocolate at the end was a very nice touch, as was the general atmosphere of the place (dimly lit, relaxing sounds, earthy decor).
Appointments are on time and masseuse Brianna remembers client history well - In general I prefer to have same professionals rather than rotation since its harder for them to know each client's needs and it would otherwise be inconsistent for the client.
