NOTE: The following message from Congresswoman (2nd District) Angie Craig is not political. We are giving attribution and sharing this because reading is a great form of self-care that we enjoy, too. We appreciate that this message includes convenient links to the resources suggested, and we hope you enjoy them (almost) as much as massage therapy.

The Summer Special is our most popular deal of the year. We have extended the time you will have to use them to October 31, 2020.

Click here to purchase the Summer Special or any of our online gift card options!
For your safety, we are limiting the number of people in our lobby at one time, so we prefer that you purchase the Summer Special and gift cards on our website under "Buy A Gift Card" or call by phone during business hours. The Summer Special will be available for purchase through July 21. You can choose to pick them up or have them mailed to you at no extra charge. They are great gifts for all occasions, too!
FAQ: Are masks required?
Yes, masks are required. There are no exceptions. For the safety of our staff and clients, people that are unable / unwilling to wear masks are not permitted to enter Eagan Massage Center.
We encourage people to wear surgical masks or 100% cotton masks with at least 3 layers of material. Masks must cover your chin, mouth, and nose. If your mask is too loose or too small, we will provide you with an appropriate surgical mask to wear during your massage. If you don't have one with you, we will provide a mask that must be worn.
During your massage, we have made special arrangements so you might temporarily move the mask (if needed) while you are face down. If you ask, our massage therapists will be happy to show you. You must have your mask on properly when in any position other than face down.
We look forward to a time when masks won't be necessary, but that is likely to be at least a year away from now. We are continuing to follow medical research, best practices guidelines, and epidemiology related to COVID-19 and other infectious diseases, and will adapt our policies as appropriate.
We are so excited to announce that we are opening Monday, July 6th! You can now make appointments for July and August online. We will be able to schedule appointments via the phone starting July 6th, during business hours. We are limiting appointments to 1 hour for July and August to manage traffic flow. We are not offering Pregnancy, Thai, or Focused Foot Massage at this time. Click here to schedule a massage!
You can find our COVID-19 plans on our website and Facebook page. Masks are required for everyone, but we have made special arrangements so you can temporarily move the mask (if needed) while you are face down. When you come in for your appointment, our massage therapists will be happy to show you. Click here and scroll down to see our policies and answers to frequently asked questions!
Effective immediately, our prices no longer include the sales taxes. Our 1 hour massage will cost $80 plus sales tax ($85.70). Sessions with Jason and Judy are $90 plus tax. Click here to see our services and prices!
