Pain Melts Away at Massage by Mari

By Jake Levin

The sense of calmness is palpable upon walking through the doors of Mari Brown's massage parlor, the feeling serene.

Brown is the owner of Massage by Mari, headquartered in North Providence, R.I. Since founding a parlor seven years ago with her husband, Massage by Mari has gone from a tiny rented room to a much larger business all while maintaining the same mission: the strive to make every client feel comfortable.

"I am truly humbled and grateful," Brown said of her experience. "We are grateful clients continue to support us and that we continue to grow. We are a small business, not a chain."

Brown can list numerous benefits reaped from massaging on a regular basis, including the minimizing of stress and anxiety. But there are countless pros from a physical standpoint as well, such as the treatment of lower back pain, the increase in range of motion, improved circulation and diminishment of migraines.

Clients dictate the atmosphere during treatment at Massage by Mari, from conversational to silence.

Mari and her staff are more than happy to talk clients through their massage if they so choose, while others prefer the lack of interaction and simply drift away with relaxing music, scented oils and dimmed lights.

"That in itself can help with anxiety and stress relief," Brown noted of silent treatment. "Deep breaths can also quiet the mind."

Brown added that massages can treat muscle spasms, as well as reducing tight muscles.

"Loosening tight muscles will help you feel better, feel lighter," she said.

It warms Brown's heart whenever a client leaves with a smile on their face, knowing that they were satisfied with their treatment. It's why she got into this business in the first place, after all.

"It may sound cliché, but I got in this line of work to help people," Brown said.

Both Swedish and deep tissue massage options are available at Massage by Mari, as well as couples massages.
