Having sore muscles, like signing a five-year lease or wearing socks made of lead, can make it difficult to move. Evict tensely wound tissue with today’s Groupon to Inner Wisdom Wellness Center, in Merriam. Choose between the following options:
- For $40, you get a 60-minute Himalayan salt-stone massage (an $80 value).
- For $60, you get a two-hour couples-massage workshop (a $120 value).
The therapists at Inner Wisdom Wellness Center heal sore muscles and stressed minds with holistic massage and reflexology remedies. During the Himalayan salt-stone massage, kneading hands press mineral-rich warm stones along the back and shoulders in a process that sets free any stored-up tension or fear of geology.
Tranquility-seeking duos can opt for the couples workshop to work side-by-side with a licensed therapist, learning the tricks and techniques of muscle mollification. During the two-hour private lesson each student receives 45 minutes of table time while their partner works with the therapist on massage basics such as body posture, appropriate table height, and location of the back. Couples leave with a pamphlet on basic Swedish-massage techniques to take home for future trips down relaxation lane.
