I can’t afford to indulge in massage as frequently as I’d like (daily). But, when my back is seriously knotted up from a long, stressful month at work – spending an hour with a good masseuse is heaven. Mollie provides one of the best massage experiences I’ve had. Being a wimp and somewhat anemic, I bruise rather easily. Some massage therapists I’ve tried have a rather brutal approach to loosening muscles and lean to heavily on their elbows. Mollie uses a gentle, circular motion that relaxes me completely and still works deeply into my clenched muscles. I always feel a couple of inches taller when she’s finished. Her studio is right in the heart of downtown Edmonds, less than a block from one of my favorite coffee shops – Walnut Street Coffee (a great place to continue a relaxing afternoon). The loft space she uses is decorated like a beach cottage, and with the soothing music and just a touch of clean fragrance – I feel transported to an ocean resort. I appreciate that Mollie doesn’t use overly strong scents in her oil/lotions, but just enough to clear the head. You won’t regret spending an hour with these healing hands!
I’ve been going to Mollie for a few years now and she does a great job on her massages. It’s a nice combination of swedish and deep tissue and has a nice consistent flow that will put you right at ease and eventually will make you doze off. She always asks in the beginning where you like the focus of the massage to be and then she actually listens and does it! In addition to the great massage, which is the most important thing, the bonus is that her office is very cute and clean and her price is very reasonable. I love supporting independent massage therapists versus the big companies because you know you will always receive the consistent great massages!
