Gage Bauer, Mr. Massage IA’s titular therapist, unleashes muscle-cosseting techniques on deserving backs during one-hour sessions. Before cosseting begins, each guest reclines in a quiet treatment room, letting soft music massage eardrums and egos. During Swedish massages, Gage glides and kneads with flowing movements to relax bodies and calm nerves. Deft hands gradually increase pressure, stretching and lengthening muscles in tense spots to relieve mild pain, banish headaches, and alleviate stress. Deep-tissue massages loosen and relieve points of chronic pain using slower, deeper strokes than regular massages or backstroke relays. During hot-stone massages, heated stones weigh down backs, radiating warmth into tense muscles while Gage coasts oiled stones arcoss skin for ultimate stress relief. Flattered frames then retire to the reception area, where they are gifted with a revitalizing bottle of water. Guests looking to prolong the muscle-mending magic can upgrade to a 90-minute session, add aromatherapy, or have their massage performed while traveling at the speed of light for an additional $20.
