The Full Story
Island City Massage opened in 2019 and has grown to be a top-source for therapeutic massage in South Florida. Licensed massage therapist, Christian Perez, is a Puerto Rican native who relocated to Delaware in 2001 to learn English and went on to earn a BS in International Business Administration from Goldey Beacom College. He then attended the Academy of Massage and Bodywork to become a licensed massage therapist. In 2017, his entrepreneurial spirit and passion for healthy living inspired him to move to Wilton Manors, Florida to start his small business. At the time, he was the youngest business owner on the famous Wilton Drive.
Thanks to the support of the local community, Mayor Justin Flippen and many small business owners, the massage studio quickly grew to be TripAdvisor’s #1 recommended spa in Wilton Manors, Florida.
The popular magazine HotSpots, Florida's largest LGBTQ Media Network, includes Island City Massage in their special Spas Review publishing every year. Christian's contentious contributions to the community involve volunteering for the SMART RIDE, annual cycling event with over 1,000 riders traveling from Miami to Key West. He also volunteers at the annual Sunshine Cup, an event hosting 25+ teams and 400+ players from all areas of the country participating in South Florida Flag Football league and the National Gay Flag Football Organization.
In 2022, ICM relocated to an elegant building just minutes from the beach in the beautiful city of Fort Lauderdale.
