Aromatherapy or Specialty Lotions / Oils - Add $3 - $10 depending on choices
All of our massage sessions use unscented lotion or oil depending on the treatment that you request. You may upgrade your session to include specialty products as follows:
Comforting Massage Oil- essential oils of Lavender, Chamomile and Patchouli are combined with Grape Seed, Apricot and Almond Oils to provide a full spectrum of emollient properties.
Pure Cocoa Butter - yummy chocolate and great for your skin
Virgin Coconut Oil - love the smell and it is a moisturizer that can't be beat! Use both Cocoa Butter and Coconut oil and you'll smell like a candy bar!
Dr. Singha’s Mustard Rub- wonderful for circulation and for detoxing your body. But you have to be ok with mustard scent!
Egyptian Oil - Peanut Oil based with Sassafras and Fir Needle oil - good for arthritic conditions - smells outdoorsy.
DO NOT REQUEST IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO PEANUTS.
Other specialties may be available at the time of your service.
Classic Massage Rates
Please note that our massage therapy offerings are actual hands on time and not the shortened time that you have come to expect at other businesses. (** See note below and read about our reservation and cancellation policy) All massage sessions include basic Swedish, Deep Tissue, general acupressure and other massage modalities that each therapist has studied. Experienced therapists use various techniques and are able to incorporate multiple disciplines into each massage to meet your individual needs. You are encouraged to receive massage from different therapists in order to receive the benefits of their individual knowledge.
Please tell your therapist if you are pregnant or trying to become pregnant so that we can schedule you with a knowledgeable therapist for this specialty massage. There is no extra charge for this. While it is not required for a therapist to be certified in Pre and Post Natal massage in order to do massage for those who are pregnant, we do have some therapists who ARE certified.

How are our prices different from Other Spas and Massage Therapy Businesses?
At The Balanced Body Shoppe you get a full hour on the table when you schedule an hour massage (opposed to the industry standard of 50 minutes, leaving you 10 minutes to dress and undress). Please be sure to arrive 5 - 15 minutes prior to your reservation so that we can start your session on time.
We do NOT charge extra for Deep Tissue work (an added value for which other spas charge as much as $10-20 extra).
Gift Certificates for any denomination are available. Call us at (864) 286-6700 to schedule a massage or order a Gift Certificate.
