Good to Live Massage

226 Myrtle Street E, #5
Stillwater, MN 55082

Welcome to this sacred healing space! Bene Vivere means to Live Well. Living Well within the body in the truest sense means mind, body, and spirit are existing harmoniously with each other. Our thoughts affect our emotions, and those emotions, as well as our physical experiences, are stored in our bodies. When those thoughts, emotions, or experiences are negative they can be stored in the body as knots, taut muscles, and stagnant energy as well as other health ailments. Taking time to restore oneself is not a luxury but a necessity. Massage and bodywork using nature’s healing oils and plant extracts can help the body return to balance. Come experience a restorative and relaxing session to begin your healing journey.

Did you know that Stillwater has five sets of historic steps that you can climb for exercise, fun or for the view? The steps are marked on the map within the Stillwater Visitor Guide: Main Street Stairs · Chestnut Street Stairs · Pioneer Park Stairs · Triangle Park Stairs · South Hill Stairs. Each set has about 100 steps in a very steep vertical climb. Wind your way through downtown to find them all for a sense of accomplishment and about a 3 mile walk. Here is a suggested route –  Click to view/print Stillwater Steps Route.

The Gateway-Brown’s Creek Trail is a multi-use trail providing biking, rollerblading, running, walking, horseback riding (starting at Pine Point Park, not downtown) and cross-country skiing (Gateway trail only) to trail users year-round. Start cycling downtown Stillwater at the trail-head on the north end of Main Street by the old train depot where a parking lot, map, and water fountains welcome you!

The Gateway State Trail is heavily used by thousands of people all year long. The former paved Soo Line rail bed runs 18 miles from St. Paul to Pine Point County Park in Stillwater offering mostly flat, scenic riding. From St. Paul to Interstate 694, the trail travels through an urban setting that joins numerous parks and other local and regional trail connections, including the Phalen-Keller Regional Park and the Bruce Vento Regional Trail.
