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.
$30 for One 60-Minute Swedish or Deep-Tissue Massage (Up to $75 Value)
Swedish massage uses a series of gentle, flowing strokes to soothe muscles and stimulate circulation throughout the body. Deep-tissue treatments target specific areas with firmer pressure to ease chronic pains.
Soothe Massage Therapy
Even as a young girl, Kate had a knack for kneading away stress. Her talent for easing aches and pains—along with her gift for playing piano—even earned her an appropriate nickname: “Magic Hands.” Later in life, after 13 years of working in retail, Kate realized the full potential of this nickname when she shifted gears and began working as a professional massage therapist.
Today, Kate presides over Soothe Massage Therapy, where she prides herself on customizing treatments for each of her clients. “I like to start out by just having a conversation,” she explains before describing how she uses knowledge of a person’s occupation and lifestyle to respond to individual needs. Rather than limit herself to a single modality, Kate relies on Swedish and deep-tissue techniques to soothe nerves and heal shoulders sore from carrying around backpacks or suits of metal armor.
To help her clients relax, Kate has decorated her studio in a soothing, neutral palette. The notes of a piano or classical guitar mingle with the quiet burbling of a fountain as she begins to work her magic, stroking away tension and removing loose change lodged between shoulder blades.
