Ozssage, Ltd. has been servicing clients for 10 years under the innovative leadership of Jacquie Rager. When clients walk into the studio, nestled in the Meadow Village in Big Sky, “they feel like they’re coming home.”

At Ozssage, whose name is a creative blending of the Australian pronunciation of the country itself, and “massage,” you’ll never get a therapist who is tired or overworked. All therapists are nationally certified and continue their education through clinics and hands-on practice.

Rager moved to the states in 1999 after a ski instructing career in Australia. Her interest in massage therapy began after her own injury on the slopes, which began her commitment to massage therapy’s healing properties. When Rager moved to Big Sky, she began Ozssage with a focus on treatment specific message, and in 2004 became affiliated with Big Sky Health and Fitness. “We built this building from ground up. I was able to put together what I wanted from a spa,” says Rager.

Ozssage’s full service menu offers facials, waxing and massage for injury prevention, healing, and relaxation. All services are tailored to fit clients’ needs. Put away a couple hours for an appointment and take advantage of the comfy chairs and good reads in the tranquility room. Enjoy a private steam with a hot or cold rain shower and aroma and color therapy, or hit the full service gym. Choose from four treatment rooms that change with the seasons: couples, Thai, Asian and Australian. All rooms have a view of the pond behind the spa.

“All spa packages are based and designed on escaping,” says Rager. “If you can’t get away for your spring break, you can escape to somewhere at Ozssage.” You can even arrange a massage in your own home. Ozssage therapists gladly make outcalls to the Club at Spanish Peaks, Big Sky Resort, Moonlight and the Gallatin Canyon area.

Stop by for last minute holiday gifts and purchase Rager’s homemade body products, all made without chemicals and preservatives, or pick up a gift certificate for a 30, 60, or 90  minute massage.
