During typical sessions, Joshua Hughes implements multiple techniques tailored to his clients’ needs. Long, flowing Swedish strokes often segue into hot-stone therapy and reflexology for the hands and feet, culminating in deep-tissue bodywork for the shoulders, back, legs, and arms.

A Touch of Paradise Massage

High in the historic State Theatre Building, Joshua Hughes sits in his massage studio, awaiting his next client. Brisk Atlantic winds glide through the suite's windows, as if the ocean itself were offering a gentle massage. "One of the things I like about my suite,” Hughes says. "It's high up. A great breeze always comes into the room. It’s… a lovely environment to relax."

A massage therapist in the eighth year of his career, Joshua reflects on how he got here. "I wanted to help people," he explains, "and I was always good with my hands. Massage was right down that alley." He began working even before graduation, massaging as a freelancer at spas and salons. "I didn't feel quite fulfilled. I wanted to start my own practice.”

Joshua's approach to massage is holistic as he employs reflexology, deep-tissue work, and even hot riverbed stones to tailor treatments to the individual needs of his clients. Focusing on the individual is part of what is most satisfying to Joshua about his work. "I've had clients tell me that they're just so appreciative and grateful for my attention to detail—that I cater to them as people. The money's a bonus, but just having someone tell me they feel better is the most rewarding."
