M+F's Beliefs


  • M+F is a woman owned, Brooklyn-born, and NJ-based brand that believes that massage is a ritual of self-care for a mindful and healthy lifestyle. We serve the communities of Rahway, Clark, Cranford, Westfield, Woodbridge, and Linden, New Jersey.
  • M+F wants to change the way people think about massage. We want to elevate it. We want to keep it accessible. We believe that bodywork can be both smart and luxurious at the same time.
  • M+F believes at the core of every treatment the primary goal should be to help clients shift back to their center. Whether it be through realignment, swedish massage, or subtle energetic work.
  • M+F believes that the key to great massage is allowing our therapists to flourish in a creative way. We leave massage therapists left to practice the art of bodywork as clinicians with their own skill-set and unique talents. Each practitioner at Magnolia + Fig has their own unique style to offer and each one also makes their own schedule so they are always giving massage sessions they want to give.
  • M+F believes that massage sessions should be custom and suited to the needs of our clients. Which is why we offer so many options of customization and use many techniques from across massage modalities, like trigger point therapy or deep-tissue, to aid in chronic pain relief.
  • M+F believes that a thorough intake with your massage therapist is integral to meeting pain relief goals. We are clinical massage and pain-relief experts. We look at problem areas locally, but at the base of every treatment is looking at a problem in a holistic way.
  • M+F believes that offering special services is just half of it. What also makes the experience at Magnolia + Fig unique is specially handmade creams and custom aromatherapy of our own, cult beauty brands, and small makers.
  • M+F believes that massage is a sensory experience of the body, mind, and spirit. As such, awakening senses can enhance an experience of bodywork. With this notion, we incorporate botanicals into our treatments. Like looking at a flower can evoke a meditative state, scent and olfaction play a strong role in strengthening physical and emotional connections.
  • M+F believes that a good treatment is a mixture of modern applications of bodywork and tried-and-true ancestral wisdom that have stood the test of time. This is why we offer services from East-Asian Medicine like Cupping and our Parfango heat-pack treatment, which is derived from a mud used in muscle treatments that date back to the Roman period.
  • M+F believes that a beautiful space is integral to unplugging and unwinding. Our space incorporates elements of the natural world and sacred geometry. We want all of our clients to leave feeling more grounded, open, rejuvenated, and ready to face the world.
