The Spotlight: Soothing Touch Bodyworks

Who doesn't need a good massage every once in a while? It is one of the best ways for me to relax, relate and release and Soothing Touch Bodyworks (STBW) takes it a step beyond the "brick and mortar" studio.

STBW will come to you with all the essentials a massage is supposed to include-and get this-in addition to being mobile, STBW will host a spa party for you...bringing in all the elements for a girls night in or a pampering party. Need a manicurist- no problem? Estheticians-no worries! How fun it that? I could see me and my girlfriends doing this...almost like a grown-up slumber party!

From the horse's mouth (i.e. their website)
Owner and Licensed Massage Therapist, Stefen Palmer, strives to be the best massage services provider and takes pride in serving his clients. Stefen puts his heart and soul into his work and it shows. Practicing massage in various upscale resorts and spas for over 3 years, Stefen has taken the time to hone his skills. He spends much of his time teaching about health and wellness while enjoying the blessings of impacting other peoples lives. Stefens’ purpose and mission is to serve others and to transform them to living a more happy and healthy lifestyle. At Soothing Touch, clients are #1 and Stefen can’t wait to put you on the fast track to living pain and stress-free. Stefen will do his very best to exceed your expectations.
