Relaxation Spotlight: Bergamot Massage

Bergamot Massage and Body WorkOne of my primary goals as a wedding planner and celebration specialist is to help my clients feel relaxed and pampered leading up to and through the end of their celebration. That’s why it was such a pleasure to get to sit down with Deanna Wise, one of the Co-owners of Bergamot Massage. Her primary message to me was,  “We don’t see massage as a ‘luxury’, we like to work with people to create a regular massage program that works with their budget and lifestyle.”

I asked Deanna when she would recommend a bride get a pre-wedding massage. She suggests that brides (and grooms!) schedule a series of massages during the planning process- not just the day before. This makes a lot of sense. Getting ready for your wedding can be really stressful (Even if you’re working with an awesome wedding planner!) There is a lot of tension and excitement that comes along with a wedding. Leading up to your celebration, take care of yourself.  Bergamot Massage offers discounts if you buy a package of massages or schedule a massage between 9 a.m. and noon. They’ll even let you share your package with your friends and wedding party!

They offer treatments ranging from straight massage to hot stone treatments, cupping and body polishing massage which conditions the skin prior to applying oil for a traditional massage (sign me up for this one!).

Recently, Denise Pederson joined their team to offer Cosmetic services. She does  facials, waxing, Xtreme Lash Extensions (eyelash extensions) and body wraps. Deanna came to our meeting with really cool eyelash extensions! Though they can be subtle, they are also really fun.
