Some things are universally relaxing: the sound of a waterfall, the smell of lavender, the realization that the sun isn't a searchlight that's hunting you. Calm down with this Groupon.
$32 for a 60-minute Swedish or deep-tissue massage (a $65 value)
Natural Healing & Massage by Mark Richards, CMT
Mark Richards has worked in a number of settings, including gyms and spas, but he prefers a private studio because that setting allows for him to provide personal attention to each of his clients. The result of that preference: Natural Healing & Massage by Mark Richards, CMT. The licensed massage therapist welcomes each client with an open ear and two capable hands. His training and decade-plus of experience has helped him master many modalities, including relaxing Swedish massages, and the more therapeutic deep-tissue variety. He can render sports massage, as well—a technique designed to help athletes prepare for a big game or relax after a demoralizing spelling bee contest against a sportswriter. Throughout all his work, Mark takes particular care to tailor each massage to meet the individual client's needs, rather than offering boiler plate massages.
