Mark Lohmann's interest in health began when he witnessed its absence. As a child, he saw family members struggle with debilitating disease, and he began to wonder about ways he could restore their health. When he grew older and hopped on a track to become a yacht chef, Lohmann explored nutrition and often massaged his own shoulders to cope with "the long grueling hours spent on [his] feet for some two decades." When his parents' ailing health called him home in 2003, Lohmann began formally training in bodywork—starting with Active Isolated Stretching—before opening Planet Massage on Las Olas Boulevard in 2005.
After almost a decade at that location, Planet Massage relocated to a historical home in the SOLO district that has more than three times the space of the original location. But the ample space isn't the only upgrade; Planet Massage's new urban oasis is even more equipped to relax clients with its lush outdoor bamboo and mango gardens and free parking. Plus, the house is located on a tree-lined neighborhood street, blocks from the beach and within view of the Downtown skyline and any monsters trying to destroy it.
The new spa still soothes bodies with medically based bodywork that often combines multiple modalities and products, as well as with foot massages, heat packs, and pain-relieving Biofreeze treatments. But it also has added a variety of new pampering treatments to take place in the new treatment rooms.
