$30 for a 60-Minute Swedish or Deep-Tissue Massage (Up to $60 Value)
During the Swedish massage, licensed therapist Modesta van den Bogaard gently kneads muscles and applies therapeutic friction to relieve stress and stimulate circulation. Her deep-tissue massage targets chronic aches and pains with firmer strokes that penetrate beyond superficial muscle layers.
Massage by Modesta
Licensed massage therapist Modesta van den Bogaard sees herself as belonging to a long lineage of healers. “For centuries,” she writes on her website’s blog, “human touch has shown to have emotional and physical healing effects.” She backs up this claim with Swedish and deep-tissue massages that target any number of ailments, from general anxiety to chronic pain in the neck, back, fascia, and dorsal fin. When she isn’t administering one of her two flagship modalities, Modesta loosens tense muscles with hot stones or applies therapeutic pressure to specific points on the feet during reflexology sessions.
