Virtual reality massage centre to open in Los Angeles
By Jane Kitchen 14 Jun 2019
Esqapes combines automated massages with virtual reality to transport guests to a place of relaxation
A virtual reality massage centre is due to open in Los Angeles, California this July. Located in the SAG-Aftra Building on Wilshire Boulevard, Esqapes combines automated massages with virtual reality to transport guests to a place of relaxation.

Its propriety and exclusive virtual environments have been specifically designed to help people de-stress and leave the real world behind for a “mini-vacation” that anyone can enjoy during a lunch break or after a long day of work.

To heighten the experience, cool or warm breezes will gently glide across the room carrying fragrances that complement the chosen setting.

At launch, guests will be able to choose from 10 different Esqapes, ranging from a tropical Koi pond at an oceanfront resort to a luxurious cabin in a snow-covered wonderland, complete with a crackling fireplace.

“The goal of Esqapes is to provide guests with a unique way to relax and take a break from the routines, responsibilities and daily issues that can cause anxiety and stress,” said Micah Jackson, creator of Esqapes.

“Esqapes is using VR in ways unlike any other company, which is to de-stress and help people relax. With a combination of proprietary software, hardware and traditional wellness practices, Esqapes is offering the spa of the future, today.”

Jackson has a long history of interactive design, having previously worked for AOL, Yahoo and Disney.

In 2017 he resigned from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory to pursue his new passion for virtual reality. In 2018, he began to experiment with virtual reality experiences that transported viewers to beautiful places. As part of this experiment, he thought about ways to further immerse the viewer in these imaginative settings, and Esqapes was born.
