Thank you for your interest in Haute Massage!
Haute Massage is an independently owned therapeutic massage studio in Columbus, OH. We are committed to providing a clean, safe, spa-like massage experience that is "inclusive" for all people. A one of a kind First Class Experience !
Your treatment is tailored to your individual needs by having open communication before and during your session. Leave your worries at the door and take time for yourself. Massage is an important part of your overall health and wellness, and I am here to help you feel your very best!
Massage Therapy has many modalities and treatment offerings that you may not be aware of, or may have never had the opportunity to try. After each session, we will be able to discuss the effects of your treatment and may determine options for future treatments using the same or different modalities to help you reach your long-term goals. Remember, one session may not be sufficient in relaxing or releasing trouble areas. Regular massage is equally as important as good diet and exercise for long-term self care.
If you have ever experienced a massage at a spa or salon, you may question why an hour massage is only 50 minutes of hands on treatment. This allows for the spas to book back to back appointments, as their focus is about volume rather than quality or the overall experience. At Haute Massage, I value you as a client and will tailor your massage to your specific needs with hands on treatment for the full time scheduled. I recommend that you allow an additional 10-15 minutes for a pre-massage consultation and for dressing. I will allow adequate time between sessions so that each client can enjoy a stress free First Class experience!
You will reap the benefits of massage if it becomes a regular part of your life. My goal is for us to work together to create a treatment plan to help take better care of your health, long-term.
Communication is key. I need to know what you're feeling, experiencing and what you're looking to gain in order to best help you. In turn, I will explain the treatment plan and what you can expect to gain from it.
Massage is a tool to help heal. Whether it's stress, illness or simply to pamper yourself, the benefits of massage can be life changing. I would be honored to take that journey with you.

The goal of Swedish Massage is to melt away muscle tension and increase the blood flow to your heart. Swedish Massage is extremely therapeutic as it decreases muscle toxins, increases oxygen levels in the blood, and improves flexibility in the body. This is the most commonly found massage modality used in modern day massage. In order to meet your needs and goals, we are able to customize your massage treatment in order to focus more time on specific areas of discomfort while still providing a full body massage treatment. This treatment can be performed with Light, Medium or Firm pressure.
Haute Stone Massage is paired with Swedish Massage. The basalt stones are dry heated and used with oils to sooth, warm, and massage your muscles. The use of the heated stones with massage allows your body to relax and release tension and stress. This is a very relaxing and therapeutic treatment that can also be used to help warm and sooth the body on a cold Ohio day.
Haute Bamboo Massage is paired with Swedish Massage. The bamboo is dry heated and used with oils or lotion to soothe, warm and massage your muscles. The larger bamboo sticks allow for deeper muscle penetration and can assist in releasing trigger points and tension. While the treatment can be very soothing and relaxing, the deeper muscle strokes can be similar to that of a deep tissue massage.
Deep Tissue Massage reaches deeper layers of muscles. It is used to break down knots and relieve pressure and trigger points throughout the body. This massage is beneficial for athletes and those who sit for long periods of time. This massage technique is a deeper more intense therapeutic treatment and is not generally designed for the purpose of relaxation. If you are looking for a firm massage with the intent to relax, you may prefer a traditional Swedish Massage and request the use of firmer pressure.
