A new massage studio opens its doors to customers for the first time Tuesday in Melrose.
Alicia Green, owner of Balanced Being Massage, operates out of a 400-square-foot massage studio upstairs at 786 Main St. The massage studio space has brought the widely travelled Green back to her hometown of Melrose.
“When we are balanced, it's all for our well-being,” Green said, explaining the ethos behind her studio. “It's a very personalized, one-on-one experience.”
Green, a former concierge at the Ritz Carlton in Boston, knows how to pamper many different body types and personalities. Combining this aspect of her history, Green is a nationally certified and also a licensed massage therapist in Massachusetts who hopes her native roots and personality will help to build on her already esteemed client base.
Green's partnerships over the years as a personal massage therapist have had her paired up with everyone from your average Joe to famous athletes and movie stars like former Bruins player Mark Savard and actor Mathew McConaughey.
Green and Balanced Being Massage do simple relaxation treatments, pre-natal massage, more aggressive deep-tissue massages, aromatherapy massages, specialty athletic massages, hot stone massages and spa parties.
“People have always told me I have a really good energy and good nature,” said Green excitedly, as she prepared her studio for the grand opening, “I think it's important with massage to be open and honest with your clients […] it's all about trust.”
While the massage studio may be just opening, Green already has some thoughts toward the future of her business saying, “expansion is always an option, (so) we will see.”
