Massage was developed by NASA to help astronauts cope with edgy Tang-induced sugar highs, lack of ESPN, and predatory aliens stowed away in the hangar bay. Achieve its soothing effects outside the soul-crushing abyss of outer space with today’s deal: for $40, you get an hourlong therapeutic massage (an $80 value) at Republic of Wellness in Quincy.
A nurturing studio, Republic of Wellness emphasizes total-body restoration through non-invasive techniques and personalized care. For each and every therapeutic massage, therapists meet with clients to discuss objectives, locations of previous injuries, or sore muscle groups yearning for relief from early-’90s country strains, such as an achy-breaky latissimus dorsi. Post-consult, gracious guests take a break and surrender to an hour of deliberate strokes and direct muscle-grain pressure. By the end of 60 slow-ticked minutes, all tough, entangled fibers will feel as loose as slippery penne pasta in a sea of sweet sinew. To schedule an appointment, simply book online through the Republic of Wellness’s website.
Clients do not need to be new to Republic of Wellness, but must be new to the individual therapist with whom they schedule their appointment.
Republic of Wellness
The Republic of Wellness’s massage therapists come from Brazil, Belarus, and across New England, but they're all united by a single philosophy: the human body can heal itself. In helping it regain its natural balance, they take inspiration from ancient traditions from around the globe, including acupuncture, yoga, Swedish massage, and reflexology, a style that, much like four-limbed applause, places pressure on the extremities. The Quincy studio immediately muffles the worries of the outside world with a waiting room lined with well-loved Oriental rugs, overstuffed chairs, and amber-shaded lamps.
