Muscles, like holiday lights, can easily get in knots but garner lots of attention when displayed at parties. Put a twinkle in their eye with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $37 for one 60-minute hot-stone massage (up to a $75 value)
  • $45 for one 60-minute hot-stone massage and one 30-minute SAD light-therapy session (up to a $90 value)
  • $90 for two 60-minute hot-stone massages and two 30-minute SAD light-therapy sessions to be used over two visits (up to a $180 value)

Licensed massage therapists use heated stones and soothing strokes to ease muscular tension and dissolve stress. Next, clients who opt for the 30-minute SAD session can then head to the relaxing sanctuary, where they can lounge, read, or work near a light-therapy box. By mimicking natural sunlight, the light-therapy box can help dissolve some of the angst and depression associated with Seasonal Affective Disorder, as well as improve sleep patterns and other conditions.

Written on the Body Massage and Acupuncture Studio

It’s standard for massage therapists to tailor treatments to the individual, but at Written on the Body Massage and Acupuncture Studio, owner Julie Campbell and her staff take treatment customization even farther. The cast of licensed massage therapists offers more than 20 bodywork therapies, each helpfully broken down by profession and lifestyle. For instance, Take a Stand incorporates warming foot treatments and leg, hip, and back-focused techniques for those who stand on their feet all day. Conversely, the I Feel Like a Robot massage, involves techniques designed for overworked wrists and forearms, stiff backs, and other ailments symptomatic of having a desk job or being a professional chair-tester. Michael Wesson puts to use the Feldenkrais bodywork technique there, eliciting happy sighs from patrons by touching muscles gently to retrain them.

Beyond massage therapy, on-staff acupuncturist Beth Howlett uses hair-thin needles to restore the body’s healing processes and quell ailments ranging from allergies to chronic diseases. Meanwhile, a quite sanctuary equipped with a light therapy box mimics a sunny day to help clients who suffer from seasonal affective disorder. And to delight their clients after hours, Written on the Body hosts artwork shows, complete with dancing, refreshments, and free massages.
