A sore back is often the result of days spent hunching over keyboards or playing catch with wet bags of flour. Get back in the game with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $42 for one 60-minute deep-tissue, trigger-point, or sports massage (an $85 value)
- $79 for two 60-minute deep-tissue, trigger-point, or sports massages (a $170 value)
Deep-tissue massage employs firm pressure to reach lower layers of musculature and fascia in hopes of relieving chronic pain, past injuries, or swelling associated with arthritis. Trigger-point therapy alleviates pain from hypersensitive knots of lactic acid built up from stress and exertion, and sports massage helps increase range of motion in targeted locations, such as the shoulders. The therapist will also perform an orthopedic evaluation and stretches during the sports massage.
