Much like our tin-man cousins, human beings are frequent victims of paralyzing stiffness brought on by a world filled with stress and flying chimpanzees. Work out simian-related tension with today's Groupon to Massage Heights of South Point in Durham. Choose between the following options:
- For $37, you get a one-hour massage with a hot-stone-therapy, foot-scrub, or cold-stone-face-massage elevation (up to a $119 value).
- For $74, you get a one-hour couples massage with a hot-stone-therapy, foot-scrub, or cold-stone-face-massage elevation (up to a $238 value).
At Massage Heights of South Point, experienced hands knead knotty backs and bodies back into proper working condition. Because massage is a therapeutic treatment designed to alleviate specific ailments and aches, therapists begin each session with a consultation, assessing each patient's health history, needs, and feelings about local easement laws to craft a personalized prescription for back-based bliss.
The massage and hot-stone treatment melts the aching muscles of solo guests or couples, encouraging circulation through the expansion of blood vessels and working to rid the body of trapped toxins and leftover dinosaur DNA. During foot-scrub elevations, a therapist coddles human paws in warm towels before stimulating blood flow with a natural-sugar scrub and aromatic oils. Or opt instead for the cold-stone, hot-towel face massage, an add-on treatment in which chilled orbs rest atop the eyes as heated cloths infuse mugs with eucalyptus aromas and deft hands work to massage away pressure and burrowing nasal gophers from the sinuses.
Dedicated to patient privacy and comfort, Massage Heights allows guests to disrobe only as far as they feel comfortable, and clean, warmed linens are available for modest draping. The treatment rooms are amply equipped with heated beds, optional cushions, and calming music, creating a soothing, stress-abating atmosphere made only more peaceful by its lack of sad-clown art.
