Perfect Escape Massage
Therapy has moved to a new location. Owner Kendra Camp has relocated
from the Camel’s Hair’em building on Fifth Street to 222 North
McLean in Lincoln. In celebration of this big move, Camp will host
an open house with a ribbon cutting on Sunday December 8th. The
ribbon cut will take place at noon with the open house running from
noon to 4 p.m. The community is invited to attend.
Camp has been doing massage therapy since 2010.
She received her training at Midwest Technical Institute in
Springfield, and is now also an instructor at MTI. She is a
Certified, Licensed Massage Therapist offering a wide variety of
services and with the move to the new location, expanding into some
new practices and techniques.
Camp said recently that she is taking up the entire location
formerly known as the ME Realty Building. She will be working with
Sarah Murduck and the two will offer everything from couples massage
to hot stone and more. Sarah will also be offering mud wraps and
sugar scrubs and Kendra has just received her certification as a
“Modern Cupping Practitioner.” In addition, the office is offering
Infra-red Chromalight Therapy which is a sauna style treatment that
Camp says is very therapeutic and relaxing.
Other plans include bringing in an Esthetician to offer facials and
waxing, and offering another process called Reiki - a form of
alternative medicine called energy healing.
Camp is excited about her move to the new office. She said that she
liked being in with Camel’s and the location was really good.
However, she was limited on space with no room to grow her business
the way she really wanted to. When ME Realty moved from the downtown
location to 602 Keokuk, the building next to the Christian Church on
North McLean seemed to be a perfect answer for her.
Because the building was recently remodeled by owner Seth Goodman,
it is very nice inside and already offers the warm inviting
atmosphere Camp is seeking for her clients. The new business plan
for Camp includes utilizing the entire building. There will be
private rooms upstairs for massage for Camp as well as a private
area for Murduck and a third room for the sauna.
Camp said for her owning her own business was a dream that meant a
great deal to her. She had a kind of light bulb moment one day when
it dawned on her that she could do massage therapy and it was
something that she was very interested in doing.
She noted that massage is therapy recognized by the medical
community as a tool to help people heal and also to relax and
relieve stress and make them feel better. She commented, “Massage
can reduce pain. We can’t fix what is causing the pain, but we can
make them feel better as they work through it.”

Camp said she came to live in Lincoln in her early
teens. She attended school here and has always loved the community.
Currently she isn’t living in Lincoln, but she still considers it
home. She said that she does most of her shopping in town, and for
big things like vehicle repair, that happens locally as well. She’s
gotten to know a lot of people over the years, and she believes in
supporting them in their businesses, just as they have all supported
her in hers.
Lincoln in her mind, was the only place she wanted to start her
business ten years ago. She remembered that she had friends who
cautioned her that while she was willing to work hard to build her
business it might not go. She remembered specifically three
different people who told her they didn’t think the folks in Lincoln
would be that receptive to massage therapy. While they wanted her to
do well, they were worried for her. But after her first successful
year, all three remembered her and came to offer her their
Camp said that she has a very loyal client base, some
of whom have been coming to her since the day she opened her doors.
She very appreciative of all her clients and the community.
She also noted that her first office was located on Broadway Street
in the downtown area, so the move back to the heart of the town is
kind of like a homecoming for her. She is happy about her move and
looking forward to finishing up the decorating and getting her
spaces set up for clients as well as the community to come in and
see and enjoy on December 8th.
Camp and Murduck are available by appointment. Typically Camp is in
the office on Monday through Thursday and Murduck is available
Thursday through Saturday.
Please join Kendra and Sarah for their ribbon cut and open house on
Sunday December 8th. They look forward to showing off their new
location and talking to guests about the services they offer.
Hope to see you all there.
