December de-stress


My last wedding of the regular season was in October and still, I hadn't found the time to squeeze in that deep tissue massage my back has been craving until today!

I made an appointment with Lisa Morse (I photographed Lisa and Ehren's wedding in 2006. You may recall their wedding because the power went out during the reception! I also photographed Ehren's triplet's wedding, Matt, to Lisa's best friend Karen- yes it's a little confusing, last New Year's Eve). In addition to working in the cardiac department at Maine Med, Lisa started her own therapeutic massage business in July!

Now, I'm not just saying this because she was once my client and now a friend, but she seriously gave me the best massage I have ever had! She applies a strong pressure for being such a small person and had some techniques for working out knots that I hadn't seen before.

I highly recommend you give Lisa a call if you're looking for a little r&r escape, or still searching for that last minute gift. I have a few $10 gift certificates toward a massage (a regular massage is $65 for one hour) for the first five people who email (they expire at the end of January).

Here is Lisa's contact information, and be sure to mention that you learned about her on my blog!

She had an appointment right after me, so I wasn't able to take any pictures of her soothing office. But I will surely be going back again, and soon!


  1. This is so timely emilie! My mom and I were going to try to make some pre-holiday massage appointments for this Sunday & I wasn't sure where to go! Because of the supposed storm we decided not to, but now I know where to go for the future! Thanks for the tip! kelsie

  2. I am addicted to massage!! Glad you made time, I had one last weekend and I am still smiling...but already want more! :)
