Massage LA’s carefully chosen cadre of licensed massage therapists teaches couples to banish stress from their partner’s tendons and helps to alleviate tension with custom kneads at a site of each client’s choosing. During the two-hour muscle-cosseting class, couples follow their instructor’s methodical massage movements, bolstering their ability to uproot tension knots from the shoulders of significant others and to locate tracking devices implanted after a suspected alien abduction. Classes take place on Saturday and Sunday at noon and 3 p.m. at the Southern California Health Institute in North Hollywood. Upcoming dates include February 11, February 12, February 18, and February 19, with more dates added upon demand. Class sizes are limited to 15 couples per session to foster ample student-to-instructor attention.
In-home massages for both individuals and couples lavish physiques with a custom experience that prioritizes comfort. Tailored strokes probe specific aches and pains with various levels of pressure in the 90-minute sessions, prepping clients for A-list events in the comfort of their own homes, offices, or abandoned airport hangars.
Owner Meagan Holub’s stringent vetting process ensures that each of Massage LA’s therapists is adept at mining relaxation from every sinew, tendon, and muscle during the full-body experience. Postmassage, clients can revel in a newfound feeling of serenity as they experience at-oneness with freshly kneaded loaves of bread.
The Love Institute
The Love Institute founder and renowned massage-industry expert Meagan Holub has helped some pretty discriminating clientele to relax and unwind. From Forbes CEOs and professional athletes to rock stars and royalty, her therapeutic massages have melted away the stress that is inherent in any A lister's life. According to Holub's blog, gift certificates for one of her massages were given away in VIP gift bags at the 2012 MusiCares event honoring Paul McCartney, so they made their way into the hands of celebrity musicians, such as the Foo Fighters, Katy Perry, and Coldplay.
But Holub talks massage with as many down-to-earth, everyday people as she does famous folks, thanks to a compassionate streak she's demonstrated since childhood. As a young girl and teenager, she rescued stray animals, volunteered at Easter Seals camp, became a physical-therapy assistant, and served as an aide for a person with paraplegia. Today her passion for helping others translates into The Love Institute's services, including group massage classes and private massage lessons that teach individuals and couples to execute the same techniques so sought after by Hollywood stars. Holub and her team of certified massage therapists also instruct employees at workplace events, where they demonstrate stress-relief techniques, which come in handy the next time the boss requires mandatory overtime to help her solve the Sunday crossword.
