The licensed massage therapists at The Elements unify the body’s warring chemicals with muscle-soothing lotions and one of seven specialized modalities. Swedish massages whisk away general aches with a flurry of flowing strokes, and deep-tissue techniques ambush chronic stresses with a therapeutic tag-team of fingers and elbows. Shoulders stiff from being tackled or doused with ice-cold sports drinks sprint down the road to recovery after a combination sports massage. Regardless of the modality, the many benefits of massage include increased circulation, reduced cramping, and more flexibility for crowded bus or clown-car commutes.

Fitness Together corrals experienced personal trainers to craft individually tailored and effective workouts for health-seeking patrons of all ages. After assessing each client's safe starting point and unearthing their secret dreams of becoming human tow trucks, a trainer will piece together a workout routine that combines cardio and resistance training. Exercisers will then pump their hearts through interval- and speed-centric cardio sessions, aiming to amp the organ's endurance through intense, frequent bursts of activity. Meanwhile, resistance training combines cross-muscular techniques with alternating periods of intense and recuperative activity in an attempt to avoid workout plateaus and overtraining and confuse muscles with new moves occasionally instructed in riddle form by a sphinx in a sweatband. Buttressing these strenuous motions is an educational nutrition plan that provides clients with the accountability necessary to change eating habits for good. Though not available with this Groupon, like-minded fitness seekers can also enroll in small group training.

A colorful, carpeted childcare center entertains youngsters as parents submit backs to certified massage therapists who wrestle tension out of muscles.
