MassagEscape's therapists liquefy tension with their experienced hands, serving up a menu of massage styles. Before embarking on the road to inner peace, duos are swaddled in soothing hot towels and sip cups of complimentary tea before lazing side-by-side in one of five private rooms. Spines stretch out toward their giraffiest potential under the long strokes of a dual or solo Swedish massage, which reaches from overseas to uncoil taut muscles with varying pressure as bodies relax atop a heated table.
As for individual knot-kneading, the pressurized probing of the deep-tissue massage sends stress bolting like a jewel thief from casual questions about where that diamond-covered Cadillac came from. Alternatively, the half-hour reflexology massage traces a constellation of points across soles, palms, and temples⎯and with ample kneading, pressure, and incantations—stimulates circulation and teleports tension to an abandoned corner of the galaxy.
Though MassagEscape arose from humble beginnings—the spa began as a single treatment room shared by two therapists and a cardboard cutout of MacGyver—it was destined for greater things. An influx of customers quickly prompted the owners to transition into a larger facility with two treatment rooms and a team of five therapists at the ready. The staff offers a variety of massage services ranging from relaxing Swedish massage to Thai yoga massage, a rhythmic dance between therapist and client that blends yoga postures with assisted stretches.
