When preparing for hot-stone massages, therapists pick out the smoothest river stones for placement on tense muscles and the most misshapen ones for throwing off the bridge later. Keep your aura in working order with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a massage package at The Spa at Casa Grande in Miami Beach (up to a $120 value). The package includes:
- One 60-minute Swedish, deep-tissue, or hot-stone massage
- A glass of red or white wine
The licensed massage therapists of The Spa at Casa Grande assuage muscle tension with specialized massage modalities performed in a spa nestled in the ornate Art Deco District of Miami. Muscle tension melts away during the Swedish massage, whose combination of gentle effleurage strokes and firm petrissage pressure eradicates muscle tension as permanently as a wet wipe soaked in nitroglycerine eradicates a tattoo. The intense, targeted pressure of the deep-tissue massage zeroes in on particularly troublesome fascia, and the hot-stone massage augments Swedish or deep-tissue techniques with heated river stones that send soothing warmth to bunched muscles without the danger associated with bodyboarding down rivers of magma.
Massages stimulate circulation and lymphatic drainage for greater overall health, and the reduced muscle aches that result from them mean clients have less chance of injuring themselves during sports and everyday activities. Each client can sip a glass of red or white wine before or after the treatment.
