After a long day of besieging steppe settlements, the Mongol hordes liked to kick back with a vigorous massage, a copy of the Daily Khan, and a nice warm glass of fermented yak's milk. Conquer your own serenity with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a chiropractic evaluation and a 50-minute massage at Integrated Wellness Center & Day Spa in East Rockaway (a $290 value).
Integrated Wellness Center & Day Spa's licensed staff mingles medical expertise with professional pampering, aiming to straighten out spines as they unclutter minds. During a 30- to 60-minute chiropractic evaluation, clients consult with the clinic’s resident practitioner, Dr. Hewitt Steinberg, to discuss their specific body bothers and share recent vacation photos. The doctor appraises spinal and pelvic segments to ensure that patients’ vertebras are suitably stacked, giving diagnoses and recommending treatments for identifiable ailments. Following the checkup, clients relax as a licensed massage therapist gently kneads muscles during a 50-minute personalized massage. Skilled hands draw from a variety of traditions and emphasize Swedish techniques while applying tension-releasing strokes and tongue-twisting nicknames to each body's overstressed scaffolding.
