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 Groupon: for $44, you get a 75-minute massage treatment of your choice at The Mindful Body in Boulder (up to a $98 value).
In a tranquil studio shaded by trees, The Mindful Body's certified therapists untangle over-torqued nervous systems with an array of massage modalities. Zen shiatsu sources its mix of pressure-point techniques and gentle stretching from traditional Chinese medicine to reharmonize the body's feuding doo-wop groups (a $90 value), while integrative massage mixes focused breathing, sound, and verbal interaction into a stress-melting mixture of massage strokes (a $90 value). Clients can also opt for a prenatal or postpartum massage (a $90 value), a Swedish massage (a $90 value), or a deep-tissue (Normalization of Soft Tissue/Myofascial Release/Trigger Point Therapy) session (a $98 value). Groupon-holders will also receive a discount on custom Ayurveda-inspired aromatherapy oils, which can be added onto any massage for an additional $10.
The Mindful Body
The Mindful Body’s staff of trained massage therapists and yoga teachers exhibit expertise in holistic practices, such as Ayurvedic medicine, yoga practice, massage, and hydrotherapy. This is the basis of the wide range of bodywork and lifestyle-education sessions offered at the center. Eight types of massage, including Zen shiatsu, deep tissue, and prenatal, can be enhanced with organic essential oils from Rebecca’s Herbal Apothecary. Nutritional counseling sessions give clients custom menus in line with Ayurvedic principles. In keeping with the spirit of inclusivity, the center is equipped with ample wheelchair accessibility and free parking.
I have had two massages here from different therapists, both excellent. I highly recommend a visit here, and I will surely be back!Sarah, Google Maps, 3/15/11
