Future Perfect Massage Is Perfect In The Present

By Jake Levin

There's a type of massage for everyone at Dara Metcalfe's studio in Atlanta.

From deep tissue to sports massage, acupressure to cupping and Reiki energy healing sessions, Metcalfe offers it all at Future Perfect Massage. Along with her business partner, Abby, Future Perfect Massage has been fulfilling its mission as a location that is both serene and spa-like but also different and more artistic and welcoming than the cookie-cutter chain spas prevalent around the city since 2008.

"We don't want people to feel like they are just the next customer when they visit us," Metcalfe said. "We want them to feel like they are coming home. A second home of theirs where they can really relax and settle in and truly be themselves."

The "Future Perfect" name has grammatical roots, thanks to an idea by Abby. She was inspired by the "future perfect" tense of the English language, hearkening back to both her and Dara's days as English students at the University of Georgia. Abby had used the name for her other business, but Metcalfe said that it made sense to keep the name.

"We love to create together and dream of what we can continue to bring forth from our healing center, and so it made sense to think forward," Metcalfe said. "And the words, well, they also just sound lovely together."

Each session in the past, present or future is carried out to perfection. Clientele range from runners suffering injuries along the lines of plantar fasciitis to regular, everyday people seeking relief from life's daily stressors.

"We can help anyone," Metcalfe said.

Future Perfect Massage also offers classes in continuing education, one of only a handful of locations that does so within the Greater Atlanta area. Metcalfe noted that most aspiring massage therapists have to travel out of state to receive their certifications, so it's just another added bonus of Future Perfect Massage.

"We both love to teach and we offer different styles of classes, so everyone can find something that suits them," Metcalfe said. "Abby teaches more medical and sports massage techniques, and I teach Reiki energetic classes. Most of these classes are just for massage therapists, but anyone that is interested can take the Reiki energy healing classes. Once you are certified in Reiki, you can then participate in our Reiki Share workshops and energy healing community workshops."
