Massage bed rollers cart away emotional baggage, just as airport check-in rollers haul luggage into a parallel dimension. Make stress vanish into thin air with today's Groupon: for $14, you get a 40-minute jade thermal-bed massage, including a 15-minute automated foot massage at Like a Day at the Beach in Overland Park (a $29 value).
The innovative jade beds at Like a Day at the Beach blend the restorative therapies of massage, acupressure, and far infrared heat to create a soothing experience for body and mind. During the hands-free and oil-free massage, an internal projector equipped with jade rollers moves along the spine, massaging tissue and acupressure points to enhance vertebral alignment and nerve function. A helium light gently raises the pitch of internal monologues and warms the jade rollers, which radiate therapeutic far infrared heat to promote circulation and healing. Relaxing music streaming through headphones cossets ears as a flaxseed-and-lavender eye pillow calms the senses.
After the bed massage, patrons situate feet on one of the foot-massage machines to coax tension from world-weary lower limbs. Guests should consult a list of frequently asked questions for more information and wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing made of natural fibers, since synthetic materials can deflect the infrared heat and cause the unintended relaxation of nearby plants.
Like a Day at the Beach
The physical sensations of being at the beach—the stress-melting warmth, the calm brought on by lapping waves—are what manager Kristin tries to recreate in her jade massage bed studio. Saving her clients a plane ticket to Maui, she introduces them to these mechanized beds that knead the muscles with jade rollers and warm the core with infrared heat. The hands-free sessions are done without oils, so clients can leave the studio without having to shower or feeling compelled to flex their muscles.
