Massage Concepts brings seven years of exceptional personalized massage

Located in downtown Del Mar Highlands, Massage Concepts has been working with clients in Del Mar, Carmel Valley, Solana Beach, Rancho Santa Fe, Encinitas and surrounding areas for over seven years.

“Massage Concepts was launched with a simple mission,” said Anne Chao, owner of Massage Concepts. “To provide affordable quality massage services to our community.”

To this end, Massage Concepts therapists focus on providing services tailored to the individual needs of each client. All therapists are certified by the California Massage Therapy Council and have experience in all massage modalities.

Massage Concepts also has a user-friendly online booking system that allows clients to choose the service time that fits their busy schedules. When booking, clients can select the type of massage and request the preferred therapist or focus areas. All online appointments are reviewed by staff and special requests are accommodated where possible.

Over its seven years in business, Massage Concepts therapists pride themselves on building lasting relationships with their clients and the community. Even though their clientele has grown well beyond 1,000 repeat clients, they take the time to get to know their clients, their preferred type of massage, the areas they want them to focus on, and their preferred therapists.

Massage Concepts also offers different types of massages for the needs of different clients.

“Some clients focus on relaxation while others come to us for pain relief or to recover from exercise,” Chao said.

The company’s website outlines the different types of massages offered, which the customer can further customize to focus on a particular part of the body or a particular need.

One of the most popular services at Massage Concepts is the Tech Buster Combo massage, where the therapist spends half the session focusing on the client’s neck, shoulders, arms, wrists and hands. The other half of the session can be customized for full body, targeted back pain, or foot reflexology. The Tech Buster massager is created to help people who spend a lot of time in front of their computer or use their cell phone to relieve muscle tension in the shoulders, arms and hands.

In the spring, when allergies flare up, some clients request their TMJ relief massage to relieve headaches, sinus congestion, and tense jaw muscles. Clients who enjoy biking or jogging frequently request their Runner’s Rescue Massage, which focuses on relaxing leg and calf muscles and relieving tension in the hip and gluteal area.

For clients seeking more of a ritual spa/relaxation experience, Massage Concepts offers complementary services such as an exfoliating back scrub, detoxifying clay body wrap, foot scrub, weighted heat therapy, and oils. YoungLiving high-quality essentials for stress relief.

For customers who are looking for pain relief, they incorporate different pain relief products such as CBD oil, Tiger Balm, or old Woodlock medicated oil imported from Hong Kong.

Massage Concepts also prioritizes cleanliness, health and safety, especially in recent years with the COVID-19 pandemic. The company has taken extra precautions to minimize the risk of spreading the virus and is proud to say that none of its therapists have contracted the virus. Many of the steps they took became part of their best practices that are still used today. Massage Concepts also has a code of conduct for therapists and clients which is closely followed.

Massage Concepts does not require a membership or any other type of long-term commitment.

“We firmly believe that if you love us, you will come back,” Chao said.

Massage Concepts is located at 12925 El Camino Real, Suite J25, in downtown Del Mar Highlands. For more information, visit
