“Treat yo’self” – one of the memorable lines from the TV series Parks and Recreation. We all feel the need to pamper ourselves every so often, and there’s a new massage therapy studio in Brookside that will do just that! Crossing Paths Massage Therapy opened recently in east Brookside, at 751 E 63rd St.
When I heard about Crossing Paths, I had tto indulge in a massage for myself—research for the blog of course! I had the basic 60 minute relaxation massage, and it was…wonderful! A couple of days later I called Stephanie Cross, the owner, for more information about her and her business.
Stephanie started as a nail technician, yet always had it in the back of her mind that she also wanted to do massage therapy. She enrolled at WellSpring School of Allied Health (massage therapy is their main program) and graduated in September 2019. While working at The Elms Hotel and Spa, she decided to open her own studio as well after seeing a friend’s space in the building—“I really like the vibe of Brookside”. She also wanted to make more of a personal connection with her clients, as the people she sees at the Elms are more transient. “I have seen the change massage therapy can make in your life and wanted to offer those services to regular customers”.
Stephanie offers 60, 90 and 120 minute relaxation and therapeutic massages. All include hot towels and aromatherapy. She offers add-ons including foot and back scrubs, CBD and cupping therapy. Services are offered Saturday through Tuesday, and gift certificates are available (still looking for a Valentine’s day gift??). The studio entrance is on the south side of the building, easily accessible on the ground floor and right next to the covered (free) parking garage. The best way to reach Stephanie is via text (417 894 2456) or her Facebook or Instagram (@crossingpathslmt) page. Mention this blog post and get $10 off your first massage, valid through June 1st.
