Verban Massage and Body Therapy. Dave Verban, WCMT, offers therapeutic massage to adults of all ages. He has a special outcall massage designed for couples and parents of young children: "Massage After Bedtime." For many parents of younger children, getting away for a massage may involve a challenging set of logistics. And by the time you've arranged to get away, you're too pooped to even leave the house.

Dave will bring his massage to your home, after the kids are in bed. He brings his table, all the supplies, you simply provide enough space to set up and go to work. No need to get a sitter, or coordinate schedules with your spouse or partner. You don't have to miss the kids' bedtime. You don't have to head out in the cold and drive home afterward, when all you really want is a warm bath and bed. And best of all, both parents can get a massage in the same evening. When he does 2 or more massages in a single visit, the rate is only $60 per hour. (No spouse, no problem - invite a friend over!)

Amethyst Dreams Thai Massage - Julia Rymut offers Thai yoga massage to women and children. Need rejuvenation? Overworked? Stressed and can't slow down? Thai massage is your answer. Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient type of massage which combines soft, rhythmic compressions with passive, yoga-like stretches. It is done on a mat on the floor. You wear loose, comfortable clothes. The compressions are gentle and comforting--sometimes people tell me they feel like a big cat walking up their legs. The atmosphere is quiet and soothing. After your massage, you'll feel like a new woman, ready to go back to mothering!

Mention that you saw me from this website, and I will give a special introductory rate of $25 off your first massage.
