Namaste Kneads offering relaxation for Rockmart
Downtown Rockmart is an ever-changing environment. What was a restaurant for one month could become a gym or bakery the next, and while no business is guaranteed to last forever, the supply of entrepreneurs willing to head downtown and chase a dream is never ending.
In particular, Rockmart recently bid farewell to vintage comic book and video game store NT Collectibles, but it wasn’t long before business Namaste Kneads settled in the building to bring a new service to the city.
Located at 124 S. Marble St., Namaste Kneads is a place of relaxation, restoration, and rejuvenation in the hands of Jessica Dennis who offers various massages designed to relax nearly every part of the body.
“The goal is to create an atmosphere in which you feel totally renewed,” Dennis said.
Reflexology works to increase circulation and relieve tension in the feet, hands, and or ears can be ordered for $40 per hour. Fully clothed back, neck, and shoulder chair massages are available for $1 a minute. Hot stone massages offer warm, soothing relaxation for $85 an hour.
Pregnant women can relax because Dennis’ prenatal massages are designed to combat the woes of pregnancy such as stiffness and cramps for $60 an hour. For the stiffest of the stiff and the tense of the tense, Dennis offers a full therapeutic body massage designed to relieve tension and induce relaxation from head to toe for $50 an hour. There is an intro fee of $40 for new customers.
Namaste Kneads i s open on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 11 a. m. to 5 p. m. Those looking to schedule or cancel an appointment with the business should visit www.vagaro.com/namastekneadsllc or look into the store’s happenings at https://www.facebook.com/jessicadennis.namastekneads/.
Regardless of the massage choice, patrons are in good hands. “I’m a graduate of Georgia Medical Institute, a Georgia state licensed massage therapist, and a veteran massage therapist of 10 years,” Dennis mentioned.
After finishing with school, Dennis joined, and is currently a member of, the Associated Body Work and Massage Professionals.
“I specialize in Swedish, deep tissue, prenatal, and chair massage,” Dennis said.
Namaste Kneads is located in the back of Rockmart Discount Mall where massages take place in a warm, quiet room on tables and chairs designed for comfort. Relaxing music plays throughout the session.
Every massage is different, and there are some misconceptions about getting a massage.
“Certain medical conditions may make a massage inadvisable, so customers should mention health problems be- fore the session begins,” Dennis explained.
Massages are typically performed with customers unclothed, but at Namaste, one should wear as little as much as or desired.
“Patrons will be modestly draped with the sheet and blanket,” Dennis said. “Only the body part being massaged will be exposed.”
Customers need only relax and communicate when necessary during the massage, and most visitors simply close their eyes and enjoy the journey as their mind, body, and spirit are eased.
“Massage therapy is typically used to help release muscular tension, pain, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical fatigue, reduce stress, promote faster healing of injured muscular tissue, improve posture, and reduce blood pressure,” Dennis said.
Those having trouble sleeping or concentrating or those filled with anxiety may also be interested in the benefits of a massage.
So far, Dennis has been enjoying her new home for her business.
“I’m liking the people of the area, and I could see myself being here for a while,” Dennis said.
Namaste Kneads is open on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and provides a relaxing environment to receive a massage.
