Tight muscles, like tightropes, are generally knotted, lack flexibility, and just beg for someone to walk across them. Loosen up the gentler way with today’s Groupon to Bliss Massage Studio in Somerville. Choose between the following options:
- For $49, you get a 60-minute massage (up to a $120 value).
- For $139, you get three 60-minute massages (up to a $360 value).
Both deals include three $25 gift cards to the studio. The licensed massage therapists at Bliss Massage Studio help muscles unwind with 60-minute Swedish, deep-tissue, or hot-stone massage sessions. The long, soothing strokes of the Swedish massage help reduce inflammation, stress, and pain from carrying solid-gold editions of Risk, whereas the targeted pressure of the deep-tissue massage works to relieve chronic pain, muscle spasms, and knots. During the hot-stone massage, the therapist combines Swedish techniques with warm basalt stones to melt away stiffness and tension as easily as a limbo contest at a group job interview. The massage therapists use high-quality products, such as Lotus Touch massage lotion, and offer nut-free oil for allergy sufferers upon request.
Bliss Massage Studio
The licensed massage therapists at Bliss Massage Studio begin each treatment by applying Lotus Oil lotions and oils (and using a nut-free oil for clients with allergies) to muscles, limbs, and shoulders. It's an important step, since the oils help the therapists knead away stress with light-touch Swedish strokes and relieve pain with the more focused pressure of deep-tissue massage. The massages are a convenient way to escape from the pressures of work or school, especially since the studio offers 30-minute lunch-break massages and isn’t located in the center of the barren Siberian plain.
