Relax and Unwind
02. November 2015
Take the wight off your feet and enjoy a massage at Tool ja Tee.
Tucked away on the fourth floor of the busy central Tallinn shopping centre Viru Keskus is a relaxing little massage studio where you can take a moment from your day to unwind. The idea for the centre came from owner Kaja Heinsalu’s time in Asia. “It’s very common to stop for a short massage while shopping”, she explains. “And I thought, why not try it in Tallinn”.
Tool ja Tee is no ordinary place for a quick massage. Here, all of the masseurs are blind. Elve has worked as a masseuse for six years. Her technique is strong, and she asks me many times throughout the massage if it’s too much. “It’s important that massage is strong, but not painful”, she explains.
My visist starts with a foot massage. First, the feet soak for ten minutes in a magnesium bath. Like the name Tool ja Tee (Chair & Tea) suggests, you are offered a cup of tea while you enjoy your massage. The foot massage last 30 minutes in total, with Elve touching on all the necessary spots.
Classic and sports massage are also offered, and if you’re not too comfortable taking off your clothes, Too ja Tee also offer a chair massage.
