Deep-tissue massage relieves tension and stress, much like meditation or screaming, "I hate pumpernickel!" into a pillow. Release unnecessary pressure with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a 50-minute deep-tissue massage at Monroe Therapeutic Massage P.S. (an $80 value). Choose from the following locations: Bellevue, Kent, Kirkland, Monroe, or in Seattle on Olive Way, Madison Street, or NW Market Street. Customers can upgrade to the 90-minute massage for $45.
Touting more than 1,000 program hours, the experienced massage therapists at Monroe Therapeutic Massage P.S. soothe sore bodies with medical massages. Dexterous fingers prod muscles for 50 minutes during the deep-tissue massage, dispersing circulation clogs and shooing away pain and tension. The doors to the facility's massage rooms open up to a hydraulic massage table, outfitted with two layers of plush cotton sheets and a satisfied-sigh-inducing built-in heater. To enhance the private room's relaxation quotient, a CD player welcomes guests to play their own tunes, from calming white-noise ocean sounds to the gentle coos of hardcore lullabies.
Though stiff bodies will feel pliable following one session, the studio recommends four to six massage treatments for sustained results. Guests can upgrade to a 90-minute massage for an added fee, which—like the secret to al dente pasta—is not included in this Groupon.
Monroe Therapeutic Massage P.S.
Going beyond the pure pursuit of relaxation, the practitioners at Monroe Therapeutic Massage P.S. work closely with doctors, chiropractors, and hospitals to help ensure a more well-rounded result. To accommodate a variety of clients, the staff has outfitted each massage room with cushy tables perched hydraulic lifts. The highly accessible tables make it easy for patients in wheelchairs or with limited mobility to enjoy a seamless transition from the outside world to the indoor relaxation station. For additional comfort, the beds also feature heaters that allow patients to fully unwind and soften any butter packets that may have been pocketed during last night’s dinner date.
