About Us

Thank you for your interest in self-care through therapeutic massage and bodywork. 

Lowertown Massage and Bodywork is located in the historic Freight House building of downtown Saint Paul.  This is the private practice of Josie Hill who previously owned Skyway Backrub in the Alliance Bank Building.  While the skyway location had walk in availability during weekdays, the Lowertown location is set up for week days, nights, as well as weekends by appointment only.

Fully clothed bodywork, shiatsu and reflexology, and or oil massages, Ashiatsu OBT and Swedish, are available with easy online  booking feature.  As a convenience there are options of as short as 20 minutes of fully clothed shiatsu.  Availability is updated through the online calendar daily.

Josie’s core training in Shiatsu is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine similar to acupuncture, the difference being in the application, with kneading and pressing along energy meridians and points instead of needling.  After graduating with a shiatsu diploma Josie went on to specialize in Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy to a mastery level.  Ashiatsu is known as the “deepest most luxurious massage on the planet” using feet to apply pressure in long connecting strokes with assistance of an overhead bar system.

An investment in massage is an investment in your health.  We look forward to being of service to you!
