WOW!. I was given this massage therapisst name by a co-worker and boy am I glad she did. Wow is all I can say. Celeste is wonderful, professional, delightful, and on top of all that, a fantastic massage therapist. From start to finish, it was truly an amazing experience. I will be back for more.
An Honest Review From The Owner.
Startupwife: In response to the review written about my business on 11.23.09, I would like to take this opportunity to address your comments. It appears that you have my private practice mistaken for a different place of business and I will explain to you the reasons why I believe this to be so. I am the Founder of a professional Wellness Center and I work alongside a Naturopathic Doctor, a Psychotherapist and an Acupuncturist, so your review does not in any way correlate with my personal business practices, as well as the professionalism and dress policy of our entire Wellness Center as a whole. Also, at the time your review was written, I had not worked on anyone using the Ashiatsu (Barefoot) technique except for existing clients that I see on a steady, repeat basis in over 5 1/2 months -- I find it interesting that you would wait close to 6 months or more to write a review. Lastly, your review states that I “proceeded to immediately do the massage” -- anyone who has ever been a client of my private practice knows that I have an in-depth and distinctive process for the intake of all new clients.
Startupwife: Due to the fact that I trained extensively with the original founder of this technique who is credited with bringing this unique style of massage to the United States from Asia, I can assure you that I maintain the absolute highest standards of integrity and excellence with each and every one of my clients. My private practice has been built extensively through word-of-mouth referrals, and the other honest reviews on CitySearch, Angie's List, Yelp, as well as others, showcase my commitment to my profession. Being that I was voted "Best of CitySearch 2007", it is unlikely I could have received such an honor without maintaining exemplary levels of client satisfaction. Startupwife, not only do I welcome the opportunity, but I truthfully encourage you to contact me directly so that we can clarify this matter. Anyone who has been a client of my private practice understands that I promote an open dialog of communication at all times, so I honestly can’t imagine someone having a question or concern and not bringing it to me personally. To all of my loyal clients throughout the years who continue to support my business, my deep heartfelt "thanks" goes out to all of you. Celeste Christiensen, Owner, Celestial Soul Premier Massage
Weird but nice. Creeped me out that she greeted me in bare feet and proceeded to immediately do my massage using her barefeet, she had no time to wash....I was feeling a tad dirty afterwards...very nice woman though.
Please see review written on 01/24/2010 from celestialsoul. Thank you.
There is noone better!. Celeste impresses me every time I treat myself to her talents.From her amazing touch to the tranquil aromas, I can't think of any therapist that made me so delighted.She cares why your there and targets what the issue is.Highly recommended and a great gift for a special person.Thumbs way up Celeste.
Best for the best!. Celeste has a beautiful persona and from beginning to end I felt comfortable. I purchased a barefoot massage, with chronic back problems I feel it was the best choice. I had minimal to no back pain for about 2 months. My only regret is not living nearby the studio. We traveled to Charlotte, I looked up massage therapists and found Celestial Soul. Ever since, I cannot stop raving about it. If you are someone with chronic pain or back problems I strongly recommend finding this studio if ever in the Charlotte area.
Perfection Found.. I was lucky to find Celeste a couple years ago after my best friend had a massage by her. There is not another therapist like her in Charlotte! She makes you feel so comfortable and relaxed the moment you step in the door. I am a medical sales rep and I drive all throughout North and South Carolina, sometimes spending 6 to 7 hours a day in the car behind the wheel. When I'm not behind the wheel, I'm sitting at a desk getting paperwork done. All of this constant sitting has taken its toll on my low back/hamstring area. My shoulders also hold a lot of tension from sitting in traffic and holding the wheel. Celeste targets my problem areas and always hits "the spot" - EVERY SINGLE TIME. She works the pressure points in my low back and shoulders like nobody else has - EVER. I can actually see my shoulders in the mirror sitting an inch or two lower when she is finished. I always leave feeling mentally and physically recharged -- its my escape. I have sent no less than 7 or 8 of my closest friends to her over the last two years and they all think she gives the best massage they've had. I never have to worry about sending people to her because she makes referring easy and I know they will be smiling when they leave. Her warmth and compassion comes out in all that she does and I give her my highest recommendation. MSS
Simply Amazing - Thank you Celeste!. My wife loves stone and Ashiatsu (barefoot) massage. She has a very stressful job and uses massage for both its therapeutic and indulgent qualities. As we have traveled, we have searched numerous 5-star resorts and stand-alone spas throughout the US for the best masseuse. While my wife has had several great experiences, Celeste beats them all! She not only has outstanding technique but she manages her business with a warmth that is almost impossible to find these days. We will continue to be regular clients for years to come. Celestial Soul is the simply the best.
EVERYTHING I ever wanted in a Massage Therapist!!!. Truly the best in Charlotte! I am a nurse and have been standing on my feet for over a decade. I had been seeing another massage therapist for years and could not find another therapist I liked after he got out of the business. I have been to so many places for massage ? the high end and cheapies alike ? but hadn?t found anyone in over two years that could help my chronic low back/hip pain. So, I started going to a chiropractor and more recently, an acupuncturist. Both of these helped but I still couldn?t find true relief. My husband was so tired of hearing me complain that on a whim he went on Citysearch and found Celeste and booked me an appointment for the next day. I WAS SPEECHLESS FOR 10 MINUTES AFTER I GOT OFF HER TABLE!!! She thought I was having a sugar low so she offered me a Starburst! :) Truth is, she is the most talented therapist I have ever been to. AND I HAVE BEEN TO MANY IN MY 40 YEARS! She found EVERY spot on me that had pain ? spots that even the best massage therapists before had never gotten to. I was almost shocked at how much pain I was carrying in my body that no one had ever addressed. She had a way of working through my ?good pain? to the point that it wasn?t painful any more. I would have been happy just for the pain relief alone, but on top of that, she plays gorgeous music, uses heat, aroma?she creates an experience. Every time I thought she was done, she would do another little extra. It has been three months since my first massage and I have been every other week since then. I now sleep comfortably without tossing all night. I now sit in a chair for more than one hour without extreme aches up and down my spine. I now stand at work for hours without wanting to cry. This lady is amazing and I wish I had found her years ago. I completely believe in her and what she has done for me. I CONSIDER MYSELF A MASSAGE CONNOISSEUR ? HAD MASSAGES ALL OVER THE WORLD ? AND SHE IS TRULY THE BEST! You will NOT be disappointed. (Tell her Cindie sent you!)
Fantastic!. This was the best massage I have ever had and I have had many. The barefoot massage was awesome. It was a heavenly experience that I look forward to having again and again.
Best Massage ever. I have had several massages from several different people over the years and nothing compares to this. I am a fairly large muscled person and in the past this has given the masseuse(sp?) some difficulty in getting out the kinks but with the barefoot massage Celeste was able to work out all my areas that are normally a problem! I highly recommend this for anyone who has had similar problems in the past!
