Under crisp, clean sheets in Serene Bodyworks studio, clients await the expert of hands of a licensed massage therapist Anita Griffin, whose firm fingers endeavor to activate endorphins, improve skin and circulation, and alleviate aches. Clutching today's Groupon, new clients can receive 60 minutes of any massage on Serene Bodyworks' buffet, including deep-tissue massage, Swedish massage, lymphatic drainage, and spicy beets. The deep-tissue (or neuromuscular) massage targets specific aching areas, using focused pressure to help ease pain and tension. As if dealing with play dough, the Swedish massage molds and manipulates muscles into relaxed torpor, often roughly resembling small dinosaurs. Light pressure and soft pumping movements help stimulate the lymphatic system during a manual lymphatic drainage, jump-starting metabolism and subduing swelling.
