Your 5-tier experience

"The Works" - Experience

We provide a unique 5-tiered massage experience:

Here at Bow Tie Massage, you will find fully licensed massage therapists that care about making your experience tailor fit to you.  We care about your health and your comfort and we work hard to make your time with us as memorable as possible. 

Each time you come to us, you can choose your massage modality.  Swedish - relaxing strokes.  Deep Tissue - Deep pressure.  Trigger Point - Pinpoint Pressure for targeted areas.    

Now, your 5 tier experience begins:

Tier #1: Pre-shower:  Enjoy a full panel of body jets while showering.  The purpose of the pre-shower is to remove all of the lotions, make-up, oils, deodorants and dirt from your skin.  (We have to maintain the cleanliness of the hot tub.)  We'll give you a basket containing a shower cap, loofah sponge, comb, and a pair of socks.  All of these items are yours to keep.  After your shower, dry off and put on your luxurious Turkish Cotton Robe and a pair of socks (we will provide them) and step outside of the shower area. 

Tier #2Hot Tub Hydrotherapy - Enjoy your private, invigorating and relaxing hydrotherapy session. Our Elite hot tub has 51 powerful hydrotherapy jets with chromotherapy waterfall – a perfect way to soften those tense muscles. (Since this is a private session, you can go in nude or we have disposables for your convenience.  (A pre-shower is mandatory in order to get the hot tub session.)

Tier #3: Table Massage - Next, off to your personal suite, for your choice of table massage (Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Prenatal or Ashiatsu). We incorporate hot stones and aromatherapy into your session at no additional cost to you.

Tier #4:  Steam Showers - Now, off to the Vitamin C Steam Shower, for your final round of hydrotherapy. Our showers are each equipped with pulsating body jets, detoxifying steam with Eucalyptus and Vitamin C to soften the skin and hair – a perfect way to wake up from your massage.  

Tier #5: Dessert and Wine:  Finally, enjoy your complimentary dessert and alcoholic beverage of your choice.

Theres also a grooming station to comb and blow dry your hair or reapply make-up.

This way you can be just as beautiful walking out as you were walking in.

What Is Massage?

Massage is a technique that just plain feels good! But it can also be a powerful tool to help you take charge of your health and well-being. See if it’s right for you.

What is Massage?

Massage is a general term for pressing, rubbing and manipulating your skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. It can range from light stroking to very deep pressure.

Massage is generally considered part of alternative medicine. It’s increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations.

While more research is needed to confirm the benefits of massage, some studies have found that massage may also be helpful for:

  • Anxiety

  • Digestive disorders

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Headaches

  • Insomnia related to stress

  • Myofascial pain syndrome

  • Soft tissue strains or injuries

  • Sports injuries

  • Temporomandibular joint pain

Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy massage because it often produces feelings of caring, comfort and connection.

Despite its benefits, massage isn’t meant as a replacement for regular medical care. Let your doctor know that you’re trying massage and be sure to follow any standard treatment plans you have.

Risks of Massage

Most people can benefit from massage. However, massage may not be appropriate if you have:

  • Bleeding disorders or take blood-thinning medication

  • Burns or healing wounds

  • Deep vein thrombosis

  • Fractures

  • Severe osteoporosis

  • Severe thrombocytopenia

Discuss the pros and cons of massage with your doctor, especially if you are pregnant or you have cancer or unexplained pain.

Some forms of massage can leave you feeling a bit sore the next day. But massage shouldn’t ordinarily be painful or uncomfortable. Most serious problems come from too much pressure during massage. If any part of your massage doesn’t feel right or is painful, speak up/tell your therapist right away.

Our Process

Preliminary Information

  • You’ll be given an intake form to complete, so we can have all of the pertinent information regarding you and your health.

  • Your massage therapist will ask preliminary questions to determine your overall health and wellness goals.

  • The massage therapist will consider information about your physical condition, medical history, lifestyle, stress levels, medications and any areas of physical pain that could affect your massage therapy outcome.

  • This information will help the massage therapist structure the session to achieve your goals.


  • Before your table massage, you will get dressed or undressed to your comfort level. (The therapist will leave the room while you prepare yourself.)

  • Lie on the massage table, underneath the provided sheet or towel, which will cover your body except for the part being massaged.

  • Call to your therapist when you are ready and they will enter the room. Your table massage now begins.


  • Music or soundscapes will be played. If you find music distracting, tell your massage therapist. The same goes for talking during your session. (If you like to talk during your session, that’s fine. If you’d prefer no talking, just let your therapist know. We’ll follow your lead.)

  • Your massage therapist should check on pressure and comfort throughout your appointment. If you’re uncomfortable at any time, tell your therapist.


  • If you’re allergic to oils or lotions, tell your massage therapist beforehand.

  • If you’re receiving hot stone massage, make sure you’re comfortable with the temperature of the stones.

  • Depending on your needs, the massage therapist will massage either the full body (except private areas) or only specific areas that need attention, such as especially tight muscles. (Please arrive clean for your massage.)

  • Remember to breathe normally.

  • Your Table massage will last between 45 and 90 minutes. We don’t do 30 minute massage sessions.

  • After your massage, the massage therapist will allow you to slowly get up and get dressed in privacy. (Your blood pressure may be slightly lower after your massage, so you may feel a little dizzy.)


  • A complimentary shower is available with most of our packages.

  • After your shower, feel free to visit the grooming station to reapply your make-up, comb your hair, and whatever primping that you need to do, to seamlessly get back to the rest of your day.

Dessert & Alcoholic Beverage

It's not over yet, feel free to indulge yourself just a bit more. Have a seat at one of the bar tops and we’ll bring you a slice of our signature Bow Tie Chocolate Torte Cake, Cheesecake, Praline Cheesecake, or Key lime pie and a bottled water. You can also have a glass of wine or hot tea. (This is all complimentary of course.)


  • Now that your dessert and wine have vanished, just walk to the reception area for check-out. Cash and all major credit cards are accepted. If you haven’t tipped your therapist yet, and you’d like to do so, just add it to your credit card. (Tips are very much appreciated to recognize outstanding service.)

  • At this point, every single one of those 5 senses (taste, touch, sight, hearing and smell – has been tantalized! You’re now a new person!

  • We hope to see you back soon.
