A good massage in Hoboken, while not impossible to find, can be tricky — depending on your needs. Deep tissue, relaxing, coupled with cupping/CBD — there are many things that you can add to a massage, but often it leaves you wanting more. But when it comes to a true ‘craftsman’ in the massage world, allow us to introduce Dominic Concepcion. Dominic is newer to the Hoboken massage scene — but let’s just say, he’s got healing hands, and he just started working at EC Beauty Studio in Hoboken at 80 River Street 2x/week. Of course, we needed to spill the tea about our experience with his trigger point therapy + why we love him.
The Journey to Magic Hands
Dominic graduated from the Cortiva Institute of Massage in August 2019 as a Licensed Massage Therapist for the State of New Jersey. He specializes in rehabilitative and clinical bodywork.
”I’ve been fortunate to have two very experienced mentors in Lucy Valle, LMT, and Katherine Mendoza, LMT,” he shared with us when asked about his message background.
His selected modalities include deep tissue, trigger point release, myofascial release, sports massage, and Swedish massage.
Why We Love Him
Dom’s anatomical knowledge of the body and professional yet personal demeanor allow him to personalize each message and seriously cure ailments and pain, no matter what the issue.
He uses trigger points, CBD, cupping, and focused massage wherever is needed.
At EC, it’s always a calming spa experience — If you haven’t heard of EC Beauty Studio — then allow us to introduce it to you. Erica Cerpa started this facial spa almost a decade ago and offers a variety of custom facials and other skin treatments.
Having won ‘Best of Hoboken’ for over 7 years in a row, it’s not surprising that a ton of locals flock to the spa for skin treatments and to keep that glow. And now, you can add massage to your spa day.
Dominic offers 60- and 90-minute treatments, ideal for getting in a zen-like state and then, just maybe, getting a facial/other treatments after to round out the day. Unlike other massage experiences, this one is truly custom (fun fact: he once did a full hour just on neck and shoulders!). You’re welcome.
How to Book
You can book your next massage with Dominic at EC Beauty Studio where he’s available every Thursday and select Mondays.
