Specials, Bonuses, Discounts!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful winter! Yes? No? Oh your lips are frozen together? Well, perhaps this will warm you up: Elevate now has discounts, specials, bonuses!

1. If it’s been more than 90 days since you’ve been in the office, I’ll take $10 off when you come back in for a visit by March 31!
2. Re-booking Discount – If you re-book your next appointment for a date within six weeks of your current appointment – and keep it – you will get $10 off! The goal here is to reward you for continuing to think proactively about your massage regimen and making space for it, because **your body will respond better with regular massage than it will in crisis mode.** Unlike those corporate places, there are no contracts here – just a reward for managing to invest in yourself regularly.
3. Refer a friend and get $10 off for each of you when they make an appointment and keep it! This can be combined with others; so, if you re-book AND refer a friend you could get $20 off a massage. Referrals and online reviews have been essential to getting the word out for me, and I want to show my appreciation.

Thanks for listening, and stay warm and soft! Spring is just around the corner, friends ✨🌷

New Services ✨

I’m thrilled to say that in 2019 I will be offering new services as well as incentives for making massage a part of your schedule and budget on a regular basis!

First, I am adding cupping massage to my list of techniques. Starting today, you will be able to schedule a regular 60 or 90 minute massage and receive cupping techniques integrated into the work! This is a valuable tool for addressing bound fascia which can restrict movement and function in the body. It is also helpful for respiratory issues, cellulite, and sluggish lymph flow.

Second, Beginning Meditation classes on Wednesday nights have come to an end, and individual meditation instruction sessions will take their place! I heard feedback from so many that they didn’t feel quite ready to embark on their meditation journey in a group setting, and voila! Sessions will be offered for $45 for 60 minutes, and will consist of instruction followed by a seated session together and information to take home. If you would still like to take this in a group setting with a few friends, feel free to reach out to discuss pricing and make sure my space will accommodate the group.

Third, lomilomi continues to be a service people are seeking even from out of town! Some who received this work ten years ago on vacation and thought it was only available on or around the Pacific Ocean are finding they can now access it right here in Columbus – meanwhile, business folk in town from Missouri or Iowa are taking advantage of it while on their quarterly visit! This healing work comes from the Hawaiian islands and has been the main form of bodywork in Hawaiian culture through many generations. You can check out a video of this service here.

Let these healing modalities keep you soft and warm until Spring! Stay tuned for exciting discounts that will make this work even more accessible and make you feel good about staying on top of your self care.

Valentine’s Day – We’ve Got What You Knead

This Valentine’s Day, I want to see all your shining faces as you give yourself and others the best gift there is: care! This year everyone gets a special day. On Thursday the 14th, the day is set aside for individual massage appointments. Come be your own Valentine and warm up in our cozy studio. Whether you squeak by on lunch, come in after work, or take your good old time, I’d love to see you.

Saturday the 16th is the day for “couples” massages – and we use this term loosely. Each of you gets the luxury of your own treatment room, but you can share the experience before and after together – often the preferred way to get massages with a special someone (not to exclude best friends, moms, cousins!). I will be partnering again with Nicole Karras, my fellow Licensed Massage Therapist whose studio space is mere feet from mine and is similarly warm, inviting, and full of happy plant life. She has a wealth of knowledge in many modalities, and has a gracious and welcoming manner.

Sunday the 17th is also a special day – I am opening up the day for appointments from 10:00-5:00. I will also be offering meditation sessions for $35, $10 off! Sundays at the Center are wonderfully serene, the perfect time to begin the journey to inner tranquility.

If you’ve been wanting to share the space and experience with a special person or would love to set aside time to intentionally enjoy care for your mind and body, make sure to reserve your spot! Five of these thirteen spots have already been claimed. Call/text/email 614-302-6586 / heather.elevatemassage@gmail.com.

Now Offering Free Aromatherapy

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, I am now offering free aromatherapy with any service! I have eleven of the most common and helpful plant essences in-studio and ready to add to the oil that will be applied directly to your skin, so you will have topical and inhalation benefits. These essences have many helpful properties such as antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, antispasmodic, anti-cancer activity, anti-anxiety, and effective treatment for pain, headache, and nausea! Come see what the fuss is about.

Have You Seen the Reviews?

I don’t know if you’ve seen these reviews, but… 12 5-star reviews on Google and 11 on Facebook! I bet you’re wondering what I did to deserve such praise… I bet you’re wondering what such a massage experience feels like… you should find out.

Black Friday Mini-Sessions Collab!

During the holiday season, I will be doing some cooperative planning with a couple other practitioners in the Center On High to bring you new ways to care for yourself. First up, this Friday (big shopping day, I’m told) I will be doing 20-minute $25 mini sessions for those who have been wanting to see what the space is about but may prefer to test the waters. From 11-1, technically on a walk-in basis (though I recommend scheduling with me ahead of time!) you can get either a chair massage or a clothed table massage between retail errands. I’ll be in the office with Jessica Trickett, our very own psychic, medium, counselor, and healer. Jessica will also be offering mini sessions during the same time with a meditation session at 2:00 to end, so reach out to her as well for a mini wellness day!

And of course, I will be in the office all day on Small Business Saturday! Schedule a time to pick up a gift certificate or get your self care on.

Gift Certificates on the way!

Just in time for Black Friday, gift certificates are on their way! Give the gift of loving touch and healing this season.

Love Letters

I had the honor of giving massage to a friend and his fiance the other day, just two days before their wedding. The stress was high, things needed done, but they took two and a half hours out of the chaos to take care of themselves in a special way. When they showed up, they both had notebooks that they wouldn’t let the other one see; while one got a massage, the other would be writing their vows.

This moment keeps sticking with me as I’m grappling with male-female dynamics and isolation in society right now. To see these two handwriting their vows of love and commitment to one another while the other receives tension-relieving care was such a happy sight, one I’d love to encourage.

And so, I’m offering an ongoing promotion. Bring in someone special and share with them the gift of care and love letters. Enjoy the cozy atmosphere of the Center and have some tea while your buddy gets a massage; then swap! This is not limited to couples, so bring your bestie. $120 for two 60-minute massages. I’ve even got paper and pens. Call or text 614-302-6586 or book online and I’ll take the discount when you checkout.

Lovingkindness Meditation

The timing of next week’s meditation style is quite fitting. We will be learning and experiencing lovingkindness meditation. If you’ve never done this in a group, you’re in for a treat. Generating positivity in a shared space amplifies the sensation – and if there’s anything we need to multiply right now, it’s love and understanding. Learning to fortify yourself by breaking down walls is a powerful tool in dealing with trauma or the onslaught of outside influences. This meditation style is also easy to learn and adopt because it gives the mind something conceptual to focus on. Let’s share together next Wednesday.

Cost: $10 (if you want to take this class and have financial difficulty, reach out)

Where: The Center on High, 3208 N High St, Columbus, 43202

When: Wednesday, October 10, 7:00 PM (note the change in time from past sessions)

Vipassana Meditation Tonight!

Next in our rotating beginning meditation series is vipassana meditation: seeing things as they really are. What we will do here is allow our minds space, see what fills that space, and begin to reprogram it in a subtle and powerful way. No experience required! And as a client just said to me upon leaving, “life is 95% about showing up.” See you there, tonight at 7:30❤️

Meditation at the Center

After years of recommending meditation to clients as a way to keep tension at bay between massages, I have finally decided to start teaching it. I can’t tell you how excited I am to help bridge the gap between mind and body.

My meditation journey started with books and CDs ten years ago. I sought meditation for relief from debilitating anxiety – and from it I learned to heal from trauma and gain perspective on the world that has made me who I am today. But there were many holes in my earlier education that could have been quickly filled by a teacher and thus saved me much heartache. I’m not sure about you, but affordable meditation instruction was difficult for me to come by.

And so, starting August 29 and each Wednesday after, I will be hosting Open Wednesdays at the Center. All levels are welcome but this will be geared toward beginners who want to learn a few different styles of meditation to use in different situations.

I’m just not good at meditation. I’ve tried before and I don’t think I’m doing it right. I think I’m just one of those people who can’t meditate.

Rest assured you are in good company with this experience. If meditation were easy, we would all have mastered it. The good news is, all you have to do is show up and you’re doing it correctly. Really. During these classes you will quickly find out that the world as it is isn’t conducive to a peaceful mind, and you are doing a radical wonderful thing with your time – whatever happens.

Open Wednesdays at the Center
When:
Wednesdays 7:30-8:30 PM *beginning August 29*
Where: The Center on High, 3208 North High Street, Columbus, OH 43202
What to expect: We will begin promptly at 7:30 with an overview of practices and pitfalls. We will have time to look at concerns or experiences you’ve been having with meditation. Then, we will sit together for a 25 minute session. Topics or styles of meditation covered will rotate each week, and sometimes the meditation will be guided. This is a wonderful way to learn lovingkindness, mindfulness, zen, pranayama, body awareness, imagery, mantra, and more! As this group becomes more established and favorites are determined, rotation will be less frequent.
Cost: $10 (cash preferred) or $85 for 10 sessions

Space is limited so make sure to reserve your spot today!
