Urban Escape Massage & Bodywork
The massage therapists at Urban Escape Massage & Bodywork mollify aches as they knead bodies with all-natural oils and lotions. They pay rapt attention to the body as they massage it, performing various massage modalities with plant-based wellness products such as the signature herbal muscle cream. Aside from classic massages, they offer cupping and ear candling. During a cupping massage, a therapist adheres a suction device to the skin to create a vacuum effect that increases circulation, draws out toxins, and scares house pets.
Urban Escape doesn't stop at massage, however—they feature an extensive menu of skincare services as well. Licensed aestheticians call on the clinical formulas of Skin Script RX to fully customize each facial to their clients' individual skin type. Six fruit-based facials target distinct issues such as excess oil, rosacea, and aging, whereas natural enzymes help dissolve dull, discolored skin cells during one of five peels. The skin experts also offer a variety of face and body waxing.
