OH. MY.i had been looking for a couples massage for a while i hadn't found a place that i wanted to try... so the idea got put on the backburner. enter: a week ago.i was lifting heavy boxes at work and wasn't being smart and didn't use the proper lifting methods... *sigh* ...i should know better. a couple days later i'm sitting at the computer complaining about my lower back pain and my bf says "what about that massage we're supposed to be getting?" YES! kill two birds with one stone... or one pair of magical hands... so i googled for a couples massage in seattle, hoping that this time something would catch my eye. and oh, thank you lucky stars, did i. i came across aine in the stranger classifieds. i saw the great price of $130 for two hour-long massages, foot soak, and champagne/dessert. regularly $170, i figured, why not get more for less?? it was a bit of a last-minute thing, so i wasn't holding my breath. i emailed her to see if there was any time she could work us in... and seriously, i got a response in less than a half an hour. yay for technology!! so after a couple back-and-forth emails, we were set up for an appointment a couple days later. the offices she uses were easy to find. free parking? not so much... but we were running a little late so i just parked across the street in the u-park area and paid the (not too ridiculous) $2 for 0-2 hours. they also validate for 1 hour... but i forgot to ask.upon arrival, there were citrus-infused waters and fruit & crackers waiting for us. we filled out the health/aches questionnaire and discussed what we were looking for in the massage. we then were led to the massage room, which was very nicely decorated. my bf commented "everything in this room says, "hey! relax!" the flowing white sheets on the ceiling were my favorite.the whole experience was incredibly encouraging/positive/calming. i had been massaged before, but it was my bf's first time. please forgive me, i forgot her colleague's name, but she was very cute and had a comfy yoga-looking outfit on so i'll call her, respectfully, lady yoga. aine and lady yoga have a great chemistry and the conversation that we had during the massage was very entertaining. this is something new for me, as i usually don't like to talk at all during my massages. it ranged from their massage experience to happy ending massages to how important the glutes being massaged is.aine and lady yoga were very informative on what and why they were doing it. lady yoga went a little deeper in her massage on my bf, and i got an average-to-light pressure, as i am a wimp and have been in 9 car accidents. the hour went by WAY TOO FAST.the glutes the glutes the glutes. make sure that you get your glutes massaged. as she kneaded away, i could feel how lonely they were and needed some lovin. aine also put a towel under my hips because they are tilted (never knew that!) and that made a day-and-night comfort difference. something i can try at home if i get uncomfortable in bed.we will FORRRRRRRRRRRR SURE be back. i'd like to make it a monthly treat... but maybe we'll have to settle for a quarterly deal. =]fyi: aine doesn't take cards, so be prepared with cash.
Aine is as sweet as pie! Her massages are simply awesome too. I first heard about her services after seeing her Tippr deal online, which I bought immediately because massages don't come cheap nowadays.It basically was a $29 deal for 1.5 hours which was too good to be true. I left her a fat tip because her services were way too awesome for the Tippr deal.I hope more people hear about her because she really is super nice and really cares about fixing the kinks and knots in your body. She teaches you different stretches and ways to remove tension too, that was super helpful. She spent a lot of time working on my glutes too which was new to me because I never realized how sore they were until she was rubbing on them.I asked for a deep tissue but I guess I wasn't really able to handle the "deepness" so it was more of a Swedish massage. But she even used hot stones towards the end on my calves and thighs, that was a nice touch too!Parking isn't too bad for the building, just drive up a little and street parking is everywhere.
I get massages pretty often and I must say that this afternoon's massage with Aine was perfect! Normally I am hesitant about new massage therapists, but Anie is very welcoming, friendly polite and makes you feel as if you had her called to your own home :) I came in for a 90 min (which I recommend) and she had water, waiting, and we began with discussing pressure points and so forth. She explains everything as she is doing it. Her massages are unique in a way that she massages and stretches at the same time (very effective). Its relaxing and therapeutic all at once. Aine is a BIG believer in massaging glutes and I agree. It's a part most practitioner skip over but now I see the importance. I feel like I left knowing a lot more about massages and my stiff areas. At the end I felt refreshed, awaiting me was more water with lemon, a heart chocolate truffle and granola bars if you want a snack. She is running a great special that I just learned of for Valentines week. She really wants to spread focus on people being able to pamper themselves and benefit from expensive massages that she has cut her couple's massage prices! -$130 for 2 ppl is a steal. She is very sweet and knows what she is doing- I will definitely return and recommend anyone who really wants aches and pains relived...and not just a couple hands rubbing you with oil.
I really like Aine, she knows what she's doing. She's got the natural masseuse skills and is super intuitive. I've only had one other massage in my life (what can I say? I don't have a lot of aches and pains!) and this was head, shoulders, and knees about it. She worked out my tight shoulders very well, and they take a beating. It's a couple days later and they still feel awesome, no pain. My husband also see's her on a regular basis for chronic pain and is a fan, and he's seen a larger variety of therapists (for comparison) for his injury. Aine is easy to talk to, she explains what she's doing, and does it well. Recommended.
Aine is the sweetest woman and my massage was wonderful. It was my first time ever going to get a massage and I was nervous but she made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. I really loved that she would explain what she was doing when she was massaging me because this was my first so I even learned a little about my own body and muscles. I would definitely go see her again and would and have recommended her to my friends.
Ive had several massages from Aine and even bought gift certificates for my boyfriend from her. She does really good deep tissue and relaxation massage. I started coming to see her 3 years ago when she worked ouf of her home and have continued seeing her in the new spot. She does an excellant job and her prices are reasonable which allows me to keep coming back. Furtheremore, Aine is sweet, lovely to talk to and all around wonderful woman. If your looking for a one time massage or a on going treatment with an LMP, I would definately recommend Aine. I never get less than a 90 minute with her...
