Giving yourself a massage, like throwing yourself a surprise birthday party or asking for your own hand in marriage, is a surefire disappointment. Leave kneading to the knowledgeable with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a one-hour Swedish, deep-tissue, or prenatal massage from Connecticut Spine and Health Center in Stamford (an $85 value).
Dr. Scott Bender's team of spine stewards naturally imbues frames with holistic health benefits during tranquil one-hour massages in a professional, serene setting. Swedish massage relaxes muscles using long, gliding strokes that stimulate tissue to help improve circulation. Tension ebbs away as flexibility returns to stiff tendons and the rusty joints of bionic limbs. More penetrative pressure distinguishes the deep-tissue massage, as therapists focus on the most buried layers of tissue and tendons to help relieve chronically tense muscles. Prenatal massage cossets away the aches of moms-to-be by helping to soothe backs, uncrick stiff necks, and reduce swelling. The de-stressing session also aims to improve sleep by releasing nervous tension pent up from counting sheep in factorials.
