Everybody unwinds from a stressful day differently—some people get a massage, whereas others watch flames engulf a big pile of tires. Let tension melt away with this Groupon.
$58.75 for a 90-Minute Total Stress-Reduction Massage ($110 Value)
A licensed massage therapist infuses tense backs with a smattering of pressure and kneading to undo the stress of the day, boost energy, and potentially improve sleep. The massage comes with complimentary hot towels, hot packs, aromatherapy, and pure water. Each session starts with a choice of a brief infrared-sauna session, a stretch-therapy session, or a shiatsu warm-up massage.

Massage + Yoga Center
The husband and wife owned Massage + Yoga Center has an impressive resumé—massage therapist Summer Greenlees was voted Austin's Best Massage Therapist in the Austin Birth Awards for several years running for her prenatal massages. Greenlees and husband Michael Parrish customize treatments to the needs of the individual, presenting a bevy of modalities in the form of trigger point, shiatsu, and a unique house treatment combining massage and yoga.
Their specialty, Ashiatsu Barefoot massage, blends therapeutic, deep-tissue, and relaxation massage treatments into a tension-blasting session customized for each client and whatever knots may be lurking in their musculature. Continuing with its theme of relaxation, the staff offers a selection of essential oils, salves, and Neutraceuticals, along with a variety of yoga classes, from beginner to prenatal. These yoga workouts encourage stress reduction, and their stretching facet helps clients render their limbs as malleable as a chewed stick of gum.
