Jeff Scott conceived the idea for Escape Massage Center while vacationing in Hilton Head. He fell in love with the beauty of South Carolina’s seaside towns and decided to expand his successful massage practice, which includes three offices in Massachusetts, to the state. Though he resides in New England, Jeff visits each branch of Escape Massage Center every few weeks to see clients and help them practice their JFK impersonations.
