Thank you to Valerie Ciardi, who has MS, and who is finding that regular massage makes a tremendous difference in her ability to manage pain and function better as she continues her day to day activities. She found a graet article on massage in “Neurology Now” which further documents how beneficial massage is for those with Parkinsons, MS, and other neurological disorders.. click here to view the article

This past March I had the opportunity to cruise on Carnival’s ship Elation on a 4 day vacation from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas. I thought it was my professional duty to tour their spa and sample their massage treatments (tough job, I know); I’m always curious as to what other therapists are doing and not above stealing a good technique if I can. Besides, I had attended a recruiting event by Steiner (the London based company that runs most of the cruise line spas) while in massage school. In fact, half way through my schooling at Nevada School of Massage Therapy, we found out that Steiner had bought out all of the UCMT family of schools. So knowing a little about the spa onboard, I figured this would be a great opportunity to see what kind of product they put out.

I already knew that Steiner was a sales based spa with an emphasis on selling their spa products. Upon looking over their menu, I opted for the most economical service which was a one hour Hot Stone Massage for $175.00. There were lots of other treatments that included seaweed or some type of mud, but there was certainly no basic “swedish massage” or simple sports massage available (even though the spa is connected with the fitness facility) but hey, I love Hot Stone, so we were looking forward to it.

My therapist was from the Phillipines and I was up front with her that I was a therapist as well giving her instructions to spend a little extra time on my hands and wrists. She did a good job and I’m sure I noticed some of those “asian” techniques such as finger snapping that I didn’t learn in school but seem prevalent with the folks who do chair massage at the mall. We had a good visit some of the time but mostly I tried to be quiet and enjoy my treatment. I smiled as I noticed that the music playing was the same as CD’s I play during my sessions. I was a little disappointed in the treatment room which seemed bare and only had sliding doors to separate us from the next room. The ambience was further disrupted when I could hear a thumping noise that got loud and then faded at regular intervals. This was because the running track was over our head and it reminded me of family gatherings with the parents yelling at the kids upstairs to play quietly…. Of course, the session ended with the sales pitch for this product that would make my skin nicer and help me lose weight (would you care to add it to you cabin bill or have it shipped to you back home)…

What I came away with from my massage experience on the ship was a greater appreciation of the world class experience we provide for you at Salone Sienne. I would stack our massage up with any in southern Utah and in most places in the world. We may not have a soaking mineral pool or other such amenities but we do offer a phenomenial massage in a truly relaxing setting which is intentionally affordable (with a $30 tip my total was $225.00) so that you can come to us often.
