The licensed massage therapists at BodyWorks of ShadySide assuage muscle tension with three types of massage therapies. Swedish massage's gentle effleurage strokes invigorate muscles and the circulatory system, and deep-tissue massage thwarts muscle knots with firm massage strokes and aggressive Socratic reasoning. Massage therapists apply their knowledge of the back's pathways and likely areas of tension to guide their nimble hands or heated stones toward strategic holdings of stress. Augment the deep-tissue or Swedish massage with a peppermint foot scrub to rid feet of dead skin cells, make skin tingle with health, and attract the species of elf that must feast on candy canes to keep from turning to stone.
Though BodyWorks of ShadySide sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
BodyWorks of ShadySide
Jeffrey Grinnel knew he wanted to study massage to help escape the stressfulness of his career in business management; what he didn’t know was it would eventually ignite a new passion and jumpstart a new career path. He opened his massage practice BodyWorks of ShadySide 10 years ago, and since delving into his new line of work, Grinnel has developed the skills to whisk away muscular tension and stimulate physical health with massage techniques, skin treatments, and holistic healing. In the Swedish massage, the specialist uses a relaxing series of strokes called effleurage to invigorate muscles, stimulate the circulatory system, and undo muscle knots. He can also conduct a reflexology treatment, which reduces tension by targeting pressure points on the body.
