Massage in Omaha Council Bluffs
Omaha Council Bluffs best kept Secret
Hi. I am Julia and I own Serenity Massage & Energywork Day Spa. You may be wondering why we showed up in your search results when you have to cross the river to get here. Look at our Google reviews and that will tell you one reason why.
Another reason to hop on the interstate and give us a try is that we LISTEN to you.
Are you tired of going to massage therapist after massage therapist, telling them same things only to have them NOT listen you and just do their cookie cutter routine? I understand. MY teacher taught me to deeply HEAR what the person is going through. To ask the RIGHT questions and to use all my skills to help that person. I am called to help people feel better, not just get as many people as I can in and out my door.
When hiring LMT's, I look for this dedication to do what is best for the client in each person I hire. Each LMT here is hand picked by me. I have received a massage from them so I know that they are not just skilled, but TALENTED with a passion to help people.
Do we get it right on the first session every time? No, but 90% of the time we do help and we LEARN what is going on with your body, We discuss with you what we found and what we think will help.
Each person is different, has different needs and issues that must be addressed on a person by person basis. THAT is what gets you a great massage.
That is what we aim to do- every time.
Give us a try and find out why after more than 6 years, we still have a 5.0 star rating on Google.

What is Massage?
Massage therapy is the scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, consisting primarily of manual (hands-on) techniques such as applying fixed or movable pressure like kneading, pulling, pressing, holding, stretching, and moving muscles and body tissues.
That definition is very scientific. What it means is that your massage therapist has been trained in different ways (modalities) to move around body tissues to elicit relaxation, reduce stress and help with pain , range of motion and stability.
There is no one method that is better than another for ALL people. there are modalities and techniques to address every kind of body/mind/soul problem, as long as it not contraindicated (not safe due to medicals reasons).
What kinds of Massage are there?
There are many types (modalities) of massage! Each one tries to address a specific need. Some are considered 'basic' and are the cornerstones taught by almost every massage school in the world.
Swedish is the modality that is taught as the basic understanding of massage therapy. It consists of 5 strokes - petrissage, effleurage, kneading, vibration and percussion.
Myofascial Release is another great modality. It is very similar to Swedish but its goal is to go through the superficial layers of tissue to the deeper layers in order to get the muscles to soften and or release. It uses pin and stretching, push/pull and a steady pressure. It is not a deep pressure technique thought it does get to the deepest layers of muscles.
Pregnancy Massage is the last of the basic techniques that are usually taught at massage therapy schools. This modality is designed specifically for pregnant women. There are special concerns about pressure, positioning, draping and special issues that really only happen when you are pregnant that are taught to ensure the health and safety of mom and baby- plus help with the pain of child bearing.
There are literally hundreds of other modalities a person could choose from. Julia is trained around 15 of them. Check out the services page for more information.
