Massage On the Square Soothes Marietta's Residents and Visitors

By Pamela Sosnowski

Amy Fall's massage career began, of all places, in the military. While she was in the U.S. Air Force Reserve she'd give her fellow airmen and women hand and shoulder massages during the "hurry up and wait" periods of military life. Today she is the owner of Massage on the Square, located in quaint downtown Marietta among shops, historical buildings, and vintage homes.

"My comrades said I was really good at it and encouraged me to go pro," she said. "So I went to school, learned the trade on a professional level and opened Massage on the Square. Fifteen years later I still love it."

Her practice performs all varieties of massage therapy including therapeutic, pregnancy, relaxation, and even TMJ massage for those suffering from jaw pain and clenching due to the condition. Sessions are available in several durations, from 30 minutes to two hours, an experience that Fall likens to all of that and a box of chocolates. Hot stones may be added onto any of the body massages, but all sessions include complimentary aromatherapy, a hot facial towel, warm neck wrap, and eye pillow if wanted.

Although the spa is located in a fairly bustling part of Marietta near several attractions, Fall assures clients that her space is a quiet one to escape noise and stress.

"We're kind of hidden upstairs where it's quiet," she said. "They have all kinds of events, concerts, festivals and noise on the Square but it's always quiet in our massage room. It's a chance to just get away and refresh yourself from the daily grind of life."

Fall and her practice's other therapists always take the time to listen to the client's needs and walk them through what to expect, whether they're visiting just to manage stress or are seeking relief from a painful condition or to prevent one. A number of clients, says Fall, regularly visit for relief from old sports injuries and fibromyalgia. At Massage On the Square, a full hour massage to Fall and her crew means an hour of actual hands-on massage time that is not interrupted, truly giving each client their money's worth.

"We're skilled and we care," Fall said. "You will have a massage therapist who listens to your needs and customized the session every time."

One of the practice's specialties is in pregnancy massage. As a woman's body goes through several hormonal and physical changes during the usual nine month period of pregnancy, massage can be beneficial for helping to alleviate back pain, sciatic pain, carpel tunnel, and stress. Fall advises that all pregnant women get permission from their doctor first before undergoing massage, but for those that can receive it it will make a world of difference, she said.

Massage On the Square is closed on Saturdays and Mondays, but otherwise open from 9 AM up to 7 PM on some evenings and is tucked away on the top floor of the Goldstein Building in historic Marietta Square.

"At Massage on the Square it's a small and personal business like many of the shops in the heart of the historic Marietta Square," Fall said. "We'd be honored for you to give us a try."
