At Newport Beach Massage, relaxation equals health. The clinic's certified massage therapists customize each session to the recipient's specific needs, employing soothing strokes to ease stress and discomfort. Swedish massages promote peace of mind, while deep-tissue, sports, and medical massages can address specific injuries or chronic tension. During four-hand massages, two therapists work in tandem to remove knots from the muscles like a sailor untying a shoe. In addition to providing myriad bodywork treatments, the practitioners also teach clients breathing exercises and other methods of inducing calm and tranquility.

Traditional spa treatments—including indulgent massages—round out the med spa's menu.
