Massage Studio Opens on Bellevue in Maplewood

Owner said a massage there is with a "talented, qualified therapist that knows you, knows your body."

On Tuesday, the gathered to help open a new massage studio.

Rachell Wolff, owner of Sunflower Massage Studio, at 2104 Bellevue Avenue, cut the ribbon surrounded by her fellow massage therapists.

She said she and all her therapists have been practicing for years.

Wolff said a membership of $40 a month ($39 introductory rate now) is good for one 60-minute massage a month. She said that is very reasonable.

Wolff said the massage is “not just with anybody.”

“It is with a very talented, qualified therapist that knows you, knows your body, knows your preferences, knows your personality,” she said. “We’re very warm. It’s a family here and clients return for that reason.”

She said she also takes care of her staff with a 30-minute buffer before and after every session.

Wolff is a fan of local art, and changes out the art on her walls with a different artist monthly.

What is a message studio and what are message therapists?

@Beth—Message therapist = New Age editor, don't you think?

That's a great rate, enough to make me think about cancelling my MassageLuxe membership and go somewhere local!

@DB- you should def give Sunflower a try for $39, then if you want to join as a member you will have already experienced a session there!

@Beth- a massage studio is a place where massage sessions are performed by professional, licensed Massage Therapists. These folks (also referred to as LMTs or Licensed Massage Therapists) have all graduated from a massage therapy program, passed their state and national board exams, and maintained their massage license through required ongoing continuing education courses. Licensing for massage therapy is similar to chiropractic in that it is regulated by each state board.

Rachel - Thanks for your explanation of what you do and who you are. Beth, I think, was referring to the misspelling of massage, as "message." L Jacoby was kind enough to put a positive spin on it.

Thanks, Doug. As an editor/writer, I know entirely too well how easily those typos sneak through (not to mention the ones that magically appear only after you've hit the "send" button). You do a good job for someone who's posting a variety of items daily.
