MORRISTOWN, NJ - Massage Heights, the new health and wellness center in Morristown, hosted its official Grand Opening on June 13. Located at 40 West Park Place, locals as well as Shane Evans, founder and President of Massage Heights gathered outside the facility for the official ribbon cutting ceremony as well as complimentary chair massages and refreshments.

Although only operating for a little over a month now, owners David Shawger and Dale Carmody are pleased with the response they have received from the community. Unlike most local massage facilities, Massage heights is dedicated to addressing the specific needs of each client. While many other massage chains only provide customers with generic treatment, therapists at Massage Heights are trained to work with each customer to figure out what type of treatment is needed.

“We are very customer service oriented,” says Shawger. “With each customer that comes in, we spend time working with them in order to fit them with a therapist that can address their specific needs.”

Head therapist Pete Befano has been a massage therapist for over 30 years and previously owned his own business. Currently, he is in charge of recruiting new therapists to become part of the Massage Heights team.

“I look to recruit many different types of therapists with a wide range of skill sets,” he said. “I really look for individuals who have the right personality to be able to relate to the clients as well as provide them with the best service possible.”

In addition to traditional massages, Massage Heights offers prenatal massage, sports massage and oncology massage. The facility also offers  facials and skin treatments including anti-aging facials, dry-skin facials and various types of skin elevations.

Although Massage Heights founder Shane Evans has never been to Morristown before, she is very happy to have a facility in town. Located next to a high end steakhouse and other popular businesses, she said she is very pleased with the location.

“Morristown is a very beautiful community and is well aligned with our brand,” she said. "Massage Heights is dedicated to helping its clients incorporate health and wellness into their busy lives and Morristown is the perfect community for this new business."
