Massage Therapy and

Rolfing® Structural Integration 

We offer both Massage Therapy and Rolfing® SI here in north Durham, NC depending on your body needs. Massage can help with a variety of health and wellness needs, general aches and pains, back/neck/shoulder pain, stress relief, and many others. Read our Blog about The Benefits of Massage HERE.   For someone who is looking for more than massage and longer-lasting structural change, we offer Rolfing® SI

Rolfing® SI

Rolfing SI is a form of bodywork, that addresses the fascia, a type of connective tissue in order to optimize both structure and function of the entire body.

$ 75/ 130 / 195  

Couples massage is a great way to introduce someone to massage if they are apprehensive about trying it for the first time. They may be more comfortable and able to relax more for their first massage experience if they are not alone and with someone they trust. Call our office to schedule.

 60 / 90 MINUTES
$ 180 / 250

We charge by the time, not the massage modality enabling each session to be custom-tailored to meet YOUR specific needs. We realize most people just want relief without the pressure of trying to decide what type of modality or service they want.

Frequently asked questions

Appointments

What's the best way to schedule an appointment?


The most convenient way to schedule an appointment in our Durham studio is via our online scheduling system or downloading the MindBody Mobile App. You may view our availability, book and secure an appointment with a credit card. For SAME DAY availability call 919-477-9887. We have a receptionist available Monday-Friday 9am-2pm. Please leave a message if no one is available to answer, you may leave a confidential message and we will return your call as soon as we are able.




What can I expect for my 1st time appointment?


For your first appointment, we ask that you download and print a Health INTAKE FORM, complete, and bring it with you to your first appointment. If you prefer to complete in our studio, please be sure to arrive at least ten minutes before your scheduled appointment. To help you achieve the most effective results, your therapist needs to know your complete health history, current medications/physical issues and other treatment/therapies you have completed or currently participating in.

Parking is available directly in front of the office. Please enter the office quietly and make yourself comfortable in our waiting area. We will be with you promptly. Use the time to treat yourself to water, a cup of tea or, use the restrooms. If you have an appointment after 3 pm we may not have front desk staff available. For safety, while therapists are in session with other clients the door will be locked. There will be a doorbell on the front door. Please ring and wait for the therapist to open the door if its close to your appointment time.

Once it is time to begin your session, your massage/bodywork therapist will review your intake form with you and discuss the goals of your session. It is important to share any preferences or concerns so that we can customize your massage/bodywork session to best suit you. Once we leave the room, you may disrobe and get on the table. We allow massage clients to undress to their comfort level. Draping with a sheet or towel is provided and only the current area being massaged is exposed. Click here for what to wear for Rolfing SI sessions. We primarily use unscented crème in our sessions, not oil so you can quickly return to work if necessary! All rooms are equipped with a wide, comfortable massage table, a heating pad that can be adjusted to your preference, a blanket, and music of your choice.

We will knock before entering to begin your bodywork session. Remember that this is YOUR session and feedback is essential. Whether it’s the music, room temperature or the pressure, we would like to help you receive the most benefit out of your session.

Once the session is over, we will leave the room for you to get dressed. Please move slowly and take the time to experience any changes in your body. Depending on the type of massage/bodywork you received, you may experience a bit of soreness a few days later ~~ Similar to how your muscles sometimes feel after a workout. An Epsom salt bath is an excellent follow-up to your session. Most importantly, keep your body hydrated with water.

When you are ready, your therapist will be waiting for you outside to settle your bill. We accept all forms of credit cards, Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flex Saving Account(FSA) cards (w/ Doctor's prescription), checks and cash. We do not accept any forms of insurance. If requested, we will provide session notes. Additional charges may apply.
Read our blog 'Your first massage session at Bull City Soles' for more information.




How do I choose what type of massage or bodywork to receive?


We provide a variety of modalites within our sessions. It just depends on your situation, what results you are looking for and your contraindications. Each therapist is trained in Deep Tissue, various levels of Ashiatsu barefoot massage, & Cupping. Certain therapists are trained in Prenatal/Pregnancy massage, and Julie Marciniak is trained in Rolfing SI. Massage and Bodywork Therapists Team Under each therapist's name is their specialty and training. Read more about our therapists HERE. We recommend everyone start off with a session from our massage therapists on staff. With information from your INTAKE FORM they can recommend the best way to proceed. They will even recommend if they think you would benefit from Rolfing SI instead of massage. You always have the option of calling 919-477-9987 and speaking with front desk before scheduling.




What forms of payment do you accept?


We accept all forms of credit cards, Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flex Saving Account(FSA) cards (w/ Doctor's prescription), checks and cash. We do not accept any forms of insurance. If requested, we will provide session notes. Additional charges may apply.




Is Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage appropriate for me?


Ashiatsu may be performed on almost anyone but there are certain conditions we have to be aware of before deciding if barefoot massage is the best massage for you. This is why we ask for an intake form to be filled out for your first appointment with us. Listed below are a few examples where we may decide to withhold treatment:

  • had recent eye procedures/Lasik surgery within 72 hours
  • breast implants with the last 9 months
  • a history of Tuberculosis, Thrombosis, aneurysm, or ongoing kidney disorders
  • current radiation therapy treatments
  • any knee, hip, spine, shoulder, or major joint surgeries within 6 weeks
  • Phlebitis or Cellulitis
  • Osteoporosis, Spondylolithesis
  • pacemaker, stint, shunt or a history of congestive heart failure
These are just a few reasons NOT to do Ashiatsu. This is why its important we know your medical history so we can provide the best experience possible. And last but not least, Ashiatsu is DEFINITELY not for someone who likes light pressure in their massage. Looking for DEEP? Then you're in the right place. ;) Deep Tissue Massage Durham




What length of session do I choose?


It depends on what you're looking for! Here's a break down of our massage session times. We have also written a blog post "How Long Should My Massage Session Last?"

  • 30 minutes - We recommend a 30 minute massage for specific work on areas such as the head and neck for headache relief, upper shoulders or quick low back pain relief. Great for a quick lunch break!
  • 60 minutes - This session length is a good start for new clients. It OK for a general all over massage, but it's not enough time to focus on one particular area. If you 're having low back pain then the session could be used to focus TOTALLY on the lower body for the hour session and possibly include a few stretches.
  • 90 minutes - An hour and a half massage session is perfect for detail work on a few target areas and a full body focus. We're talking feet, legs, hips, back, shoulders, arms, chest, head and neck. And a few stretches as well! Its the sweet spot for a lot of clients.
  • 120 minutes - This session is massage heaven for the massage connoisseur! We can work in great detail from your metatarsals to your phalanges, up to the top of your head and stretch every joint in between!
