The 30-minute massage deploys relaxing techniques for a quick boost that fits nicely into a lunch break or on the dotted line labeled "Reason court date was missed." Alternatively, hands delve into musculoskeletal malignancies with firm strokes and sustained pressure during the 60-minute deep-tissue massage. Before each appointment, the stress slayer consults with patients to plan the ensuing attacks upon bodily discomforts, targeting areas of chronic pain or old bingo injuries.
The Massage Garage's skilled massage therapists subdue achy muscles with an array of hypnotic kneading techniques. A hanging-art installation of wooden branches casts intricate shadows on sky-blue walls as clients wait patiently on cozy brown leather sofas. When called, patrons rescind to the lowlight of a private room, where nimble fingers slacken achy torsos, arms, and overinflated water wings in table or chair massage sessions. Lower-layer muscles melt in the 30- to 90-minute sessions, which work to ease tension with optional supplements such as deep-tissue work, hot stones, or aromatherapy. Clients can also stamp out knots by requesting sports-massage techniques, whose percussive foam-finger kneads set blood flowing to the liberating pulse of “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.”
