VM Body and Health goes a step further than most massage centers: its staff offer eight massage classes dedicated to teaching the finer points of specific modalities. But clients can still receive their choice of 10 available styles from both the East and West, reflecting founder Juan Carlos Villanueva’s passion for traditional Chinese medicine. His interest has taken him throughout Asia to study the continent's indigenous bodywork concepts, resulting not only in Asian massage options at his center but also acupressure and reflexology classes that introduce students to the basics of performing each modality. In addition to massage, staff members host classes and lectures on various aspects of whole-body health, including yoga, nutrition, and the hokey pokey.

Massage upgrades such as aromatherapy and sauna sessions extend relaxation to other senses and sensations. The spa takes care to only book a few clients for each therapist each day, ensuring they don’t deplete their own energy reserves or run out of nicknames for each person’s individual muscles.

When hands and feet are treated at Present Nail Spa, they aren’t just buffed and polished. They’re soaked in red wine or smothered in a watermelon, baobab, and banana mask as clients breathe in exotic or fruity scents. Of course staffers also shape and polish nails, but that's just the beginning. They also treat clients to pomegranate sea-salt scrubs to fight aging, milk and honey to soften and moisturize skin, and green- and white-tea masks to make a gingerbread man’s hands taste better. Other body parts grab the spotlight during the nail spa’s face- and body-waxing services and applications of eyelash extensions.

Since 1973, each of Sport&Health's 24 clubs has aimed for full fitness coverage with programs for every taste and family member. Guests can spark positive lifestyle changes with gym workouts and wellness services, or engage in a variety of sports. Each facility houses different athletic amenities for games and laps, from pristine swimming pools to squash and racquetball courts lathered in a fresh coat of peanut butter every morning. The camaraderie of group classes such as Zumba and Les Mills BodyPump barbell routines complement scores of gym equipment meant for exercising solo—or with the guidance of a certified personal trainer. The clubs also emphasize kid-friendly activities with arts and crafts, Kidz Klub childcare, and youth certification courses that teach teens the ins and outs of training. Depending on the location, spa treatments can knead tension from muscles and paint one's favorite kettlebell with a layer of Shellac.

Petrissage: A Tension-Relieving Technique

Swedish massage's five basic movements yield a bounty of benefits. Find out more about the massage's kneading technique, petrissage, with Groupon?s introduction.

Kneading, rolling, and squeezing?this, in a few words, is petrissage, a type of Swedish massage technique that focuses on compression and release. Working in combination with Swedish massage's five other movements, these deep-reaching motions are designed to lift soft tissue away from its underlying structures, effectively stretching muscles and other soft tissues and promoting circulation so all your blood doesn?t pile up in your elbows. Specific maneuvers include kneading with the whole hand, using the thumbs to apply pressure to thinner tissue, and rolling skin between the fingers to prevent it from adhering to the fascia (that is, sheets of connective tissue) below and causing stiffness. Massage oil or cream is often used to help these strokes glide smoothly and avoid pinching the skin. Petrissage, like Swedish massage in general, often results in increased muscle mobility, improved peristaltic, or bowel, movement when performed on the abdomen and, of course, a sense of noodly relaxation.
