Like house parties, massages give people an excuse to forget about everyday stresses and fall asleep on someone else's table. Attend a fettle-ready fiesta with today's Groupon: for $30, you get an exam and one-hour therapeutic massage at Grant Chiropractic Health Center in Milldale (a $60 value).
Grant Chiropractic Health Center's licensed muscle magicians Nancy Menard and Alice Sherard deploy a variety of massage techniques with the aim of reducing stress, trigger points, and muscle spasms in tense torsos. During the brief exam, the massage therapist will determine the best techniques for each patient's problem areas. During each one-hour session, therapists customize techniques, including fascia and trigger-point therapy, according to each individual's muscular complaints or mood-ring indicator. The fascia technique moves and stretches the skin to reach the connective tissue below, and trigger-point therapy targets trigger points, which form in overused muscles, to provide relief from muscle spasms and internal pet peeves.
