New Seattle Massage is a curious name for a massage-therapy center that has been in business for more than three decades. It makes sense, however, as a reference to the center’s innovative business model. More than 25 licensed therapists own and run the cooperative space, giving them the freedom to practice their specialties as they see fit. These specialties span the body as well as the globe. Deep-tissue and sports massages draw on Western principles to heal injured muscles with targeted pressures. This contrasts with Eastern modalities such as japanese shiatsu and chinese acupressure, which shift the focus away from specific muscle groups to balance the flow of energy throughout the body.
New Seattle Massage’s cooperative business structure also affords access to amenities that few therapists could offer individually. The center’s sauna and steam room help flush away any toxins that remain after soothing massages, and complimentary showers give clients chances to loosen their throat muscles with booming operatic solos.
