Since opening in 2007 as a center for mind, body and spirit, Massage Space, in Plano, has been dedicated to providing a safe and warm environment to help clients escape life’s everyday hassles—a place to relax, rejuvenate and find inner peace.
Over the years, Massage Space has built a solid reputation for affordable, quality service. It’s a status of which owners Lena Demina and Anatoly Kolmakov are quite proud. “We truly believe Massage Space is different because we personalize the experience for clients,” says Demina. “Prior to the massage, we have a consultation and take the time to really listen to the needs of the client. So, for example, a full-body massage may be scheduled, but the therapist may focus on one area, based on the consultation.”
Since its inception, Massage Space has grown to employ around 15 therapists offering modalities such as Swedish massage, deep tissue, hot stone therapy, sports massage, myofascial therapy, reflexology, prenatal and postnatal massage, trigger-point therapy and more. Lymphatic drainage massage is one style gaining in popularity as more clients request it, according to Demina. She says it can increase the volume of lymph flow, vastly increasing the system’s ability to remove toxins and infectious materials.
As part of the whole body experience, they’ve recently implemented skincare treatments designed to improve beauty, health and balance to the skin and body. A skin treatment is specific to that client’s skin, customized specifically for them by an expert skin esthetician utilizing the Dermalogica line of products. Demina notes that Dermalogica has pioneered new standards for product performance and are known to restore health to all skin types. Using only the finest ingredients available, all Dermalogica products are non-comedogenic and contain no occlusive mineral oil or lanolin, no irritating artificial colors or fragrance and no drying agents, especially denatured alcohol or formaldehyde.
“Not only is Dermalogica well known for their effective formulations, but they have an office in Dallas, which makes it convenient for us to upgrade our knowledge,” notes Demina. “I’m also impressed by their wide range of products—they cover a lot of skin conditions, such as eczema and rosacea. Not to mention it’s affordable for a client’s home regime.”
Prior to the skin treatment, the therapist will take the time to discuss the client’s current skin regimen, as well as their needs and goals. The therapist can then recommend solutions based on his or her findings. Customized facials can last from 30 minutes to one hour and range from styles like relaxation, anti-aging, sensitive skin or an eye treatment. Microdermabrasion and waxing services are also available.
Demina says healthy skin really translates to a healthy mind and body. “It really does create a beauty from within. Bright, firm, glowing skin gives us a feeling of self-confidence that is so crucial to overall wellness.” Realizing that many people have never had a facial, Massage Space even created short sessions so they may get a taste of the transforming experience.
From the beginning, Massage Space has offered a personal wellness program, which entitles clients to discounts on their choice of a 60-, 90- or 120-minute massages as many times per month as they want. These prepaid massages are also transferable to another family member within the same household. Unused massage sessions carry over to the next month or members can even exchange them for gift certificates or retail goods.
Because massage therapy works as a treatment plan, the idea is to give clients affordable prices, which enables them to come more often. Although one massage feels good and there may be some relief, it’s over the course of several massage treatments that the real benefits are realized. “It is all about helping people who may be struggling financially, but are also struggling with pain,” notes Kolmakov. “We can help them afford what they need to do to help alleviate the pain.”
Keeping clients happy is exactly what drives Kolmakov and Demina. “We are so grateful to have a great team,” she explains. “When people are passionate about what they do, that energy goes to the client and we’re all about spreading good energy. It makes me so happy every time a client leaves satisfied.”
