I'm trying on my hat as a press agent for a couple of the dsmBUZZ merchants. All part of the job I say! Jave B Good and Personal Best Massage are working in tandem to help customers get through the doldrums of February. Doesn't everyone want to escape about this time of year? Here is the press release with full details:
Des Moines, IA : Patrons who get their morning cup warm up at Java B Good on Ingersoll in February can add on a warm-down to their morning routine …Erin Hefner of Personal Best Massage will be offering chair massages at a discounted price every Tuesday morning in February from 7:00 to 8:30. Guests can enjoy a chair massage with their morning cup of Joe, AND sign up for the drawing to receive a FREE massage from Personal Best. Massages will be available on 2/5, 2/12, 2/19, 2/26.
Each day guests walk through the flora and fauna of Boesen’s to get to Java B Good, located in the east end of 3801 Ingersoll. It’s a great destination to get their morning cup of caffeine and crank it up for the day. Here it is the dead of winter in Iowa and Bryan Marker and Christopher Erickson (owners of Java B. Good) notice the signs that folks are feeling weary. The weather and other day-to-day stressers take their toll. It’s the end of January and we’re buried in snow and cold, and February is just around the corner promising more of the same. Just as people are recovering from the caucus season, the economic news now heats up. We don’t need to hear the word recession to know things are tenuous out there.
That ‘s just the sort of thing that got Erin Hefner of Personal Best Massage thinking one recent morning, as she overheard the lament of a patron describe the pressures of the day. Erin listened and considered the tranquil and secure feeling of this coffee shop; Java B Good is an oasis from the work-a-day life. She thought how perfect the blend of coffee and massage could be for morning customers, the best of both worlds. Quick but effective work on the muscles of the neck and shoulders with the rich aroma of top quality coffees in the background would help rejuvenate the body and spirit. It’s like Hope and Crosby, Abbott and Costello, Rogers and Hart; A great cup and a massage together at java B. Good.
The idea was gelled and the plan put in place between Java B and Personal Best. Each Tuesday morning in February from 7 to 8:30 a.m. people can get rejuvenated and “re-caffeinated” in one stop, helping manage the doldrums of winter. Personal Best Massage will be available to offer chair massages at the shop for only $1 a minute on February 5, 12, 19, and 26, and patrons can either enjoy their cup of coffee in the shop with their massage, or ease their stressed muscles and then take their “Joe on the go.” It is indeed the best of both worlds!
