It takes about 15 muscles to smile, 50 to frown, and 148 to save a curbside couch from life in a landfill. Soothe sympathetic sinews with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a one-hour therapeutic massage (up to a $50 value) at C.M. Massage in Norton Shores.
A member of the American Medical Massage Association, C.M. Massage’s skilled, certified therapist Chris MacPherson trains healing hands on sore back musculatures. For 60 transcendental minutes, vexing nodules are addressed while muscles are infused with serenity and Gregorian chanting to attenuate tension and obliterate stress. Fluid strokes glide torsos into malleability, boosting circulation, the bodies’ natural healing processes, and any built-in jet packs.
Though C.M. Massage sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
As a nationally board-certified therapist and member of the American Medical Massage Association, C.M. Massage owner Chris MacPherson draws on a wealth of anatomical knowledge to relax his clients and bring their bodies back to states of natural well-being. Chris and his team of certified therapists—both male and female—tend to knotted muscles in private treatment rooms, properly draping bodies before administering a series of targeted therapeutic strokes. The therapists' nimble fingers apply techniques culled from modalities such as sports, relaxation, and prenatal to alleviate chronic conditions, headaches, and back and neck pain. They work seven days a week and, depending on their availability, can schedule appointments with as little as 30 minutes’ notice.
