The Relaxtion of the Season in Delaware Ohio

The Relaxtion of the Season in Delaware Ohio

header

It has been a busy month, and I’m sure Gretchen (on Twitter) and I are not the only one.

Which is why while cleaning off my desk just seeing this name game me a sense of relaxation and peace: Cheri Clem.

Loyal readers may remember Cheri for her doggie massages, which were also featured on a local news show, but for my birthday Gretchen was kind enough to schedule a one-hour massage with Cheri.

It was my first – but definately not my last – massage.

Cheri is sweet and has a way of putting you at ease throughout the entire process of her rubbing up and down your back and chest. The one hour massage was $60, but contact her for the specials. You can also do half-hour massages for $30 or the 90-minute heaven special for — you guessed it! – $90.

She also offers Hot Stone Massage, Neuromuscular Therapy Treatment, Aromatherapy Body Wrap, Pregnancy Massage, and Chair Massages (great for the office!).

It would make a great gift too, trust me “somebody” has been hinting at it for a month now.

Cheri is located at 58 N. Franklin Street in downtown Delaware, between Winter Street and Central Avenue. Find her online at www.chericlem.com or by calling 740-272-0602 and tell her “Sadie sent you”.

Delaware’s Offering Doggie Massages!

Delaware’s Offering Doggie Massages!

The business card jumped out at me at Trotters Coffee CompanyLicensed Canine Massages.

Physical Therapy - Toby Boyce - Delaware Ohio -Yep. That’s right. One of Downtown Delaware’s newest businesses includes dog massages. Cheri Clem, owner, is quick to point out that her shop on North Franklin Street isn’t ONLY for the dogs.

“I first of all would like to state that my services are not limited to canine massage,” wrote Clem in a recent e-mail. “I am a Licensed Massage Therapist, licensed by the State Medical Board of Ohio. Massaging people is my passion. Massage is so extremely beneficial and such an amazing form of therapy and healing, to me…it really is a form of health care. “

 

And that health care goes beyond just humans into canines. Clem decided to become certified in Canine Massage due to a strong love of animals and the benefits of massage as a healing practice.

“I wanted to somehow incorporate my love for animals with my passion for massage and bodywork as well as add something new and unique to my business that not everyone is doing (as of yet),” wrote Clem. “Animals, just as us humans become stressed and battle anxieties. Some have experienced trauma or bonding issues and they become stiff and sore with old age just as we do, they just can’t express it as we can.”

Photograph - Massage - Toby Boyce -Clem’s dog sessions take place in different rooms from her human massages, and are very similar. She’ll spend a few minutes building trust with the animal – essentially “getting permission” from the dog and then moving forward to conduct a 30-minute massage for $30. If the dog can take longer than 30 minutes the charge is $1 per additional minute.

In addition to her canine offerings, Clem’s non-canine services include Swedish Massage (relaxation or deep tissue), Hot Stone Massage, Aromatherapy Body Wraps, and chair massage – which is excellent for at the office, parties, showers, etc. – at her 58 North Franklin Street location.
