Tues - Fri: 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. ― Sat: 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.  |  (618) 692-5222  |  224 South Buchanan Street, Edwardsville, IL 62025       |       Serving the Edwardsville / St. Louis Metro Area in Bodywork Massage and Float for Stress & Pain Management

Massage

Harmony BodyWork & Float is taking two of the most efficient processes of healing–massage and float–and combining them into one spa for the ultimate solution for therapy and relaxation.

SWEDISH and DEEP TISSUE massage relaxes and energizes the whole body, which does wonders for every-day stress and wear-and-tear on the body.

I have had great success with MYOFASCIAL RELEASE THERAPY. This type of massage focuses on the entire body’s connective tissue and how it interferes with range of motion, flexibility, pain, discomfort, and ultimately, restriction of activity.

SPORTS and STRETCH massage looks at specific restrictions in muscle groups and allows me to help clients prepare for athletic events and achieve a quicker recovery times after working hard at hobbies or sports activities.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I’ve never had a massage before, how should I prepare?

Before your massage…

  • The day of your massage try to stay hydrated! Water and caffeine free tea is the way to go. Also, a light snack before your massage is a good idea.
  • Try to avoid caffeine and alcohol.
    (Services will not be provided to anyone who we feel may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.)
  • If possible, wear loose comfortable clothing and shoes to your massage. The less you have to remove and remember to put back on, the better. Also, constricting clothing & high heels can offset any work done during your session.
