Let Us Introduce You
One of our favorite offerings at Soleus is introducing massage to those whom have never experienced it. Owner, Kimberly Cowden comments: “It is common for people to have a bit of apprehension about their first massage. The receiver is allowing the therapist to cross into what some consider to be one’s “personal space”. I realize that because of this there are many who have some concerns about modesty and protocol.”
“We always go the extra mile to make sure new clients have the information they need to feel comfortable, which helps them relax and enjoy their first massage. We also pride ourselves by offering some of the finest therapists in the area. For those who have experienced massage before but haven’t been impressed, schedule an appointment today and see the Soleus difference!”
