Massage49's goal is to curate an experience that's both relaxing and uplifting. That's why the studio staffs both male and female massage therapists—to accommodate clients' preferences—and why it limits cell phone use, since annoying rings and loud conversations are not exactly conducive to comfort and healing. Of course, the real healing happens within the private treatment rooms; the team here has designed roughly 15 different massage treatments to accommodate a wide range of needs. In addition to standards like Swedish and deep-tissue massage, therapists also offer a four-hands massage and a Swedish-Reiki hybrid massage. They even offer massages tailored to specific conditions, including a cancer massage, prenatal massage, restless legs massage, and compulsive jazz hands massage. Lavish spa treatments, meanwhile, round out the menu with options such as a desert stone body polish or an herbal body scrub infused with peppermint and rosemary or French lavender.
