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.

When she's not attending continuing-education courses and international meetings to keep her skills up to date, medical director Dr. Nasreen Sheikh, uses what she's learned to helm NoVa Medical Skin Care. There, Dr. Sheikh and her team create customized aesthetic plans that combat skin issues ranging from acne and excess hair to wrinkles and sun spots. Aestheticians reach for M.D. Forte, SkinMedica, Revision, and Obagi products to brighten and smooth the skin during chemical peels, and call on advanced lasers to zap spider veins, resurface faces, and permanently destroy unwanted hairs and rogue daisies sprouting from any skin type. For flagging countenances, the office also erases fine lines with Botox, Restylane, and Juvederm injections.

Your feet are soaking in a warm footbath while flower petals float on the surface of the water, giving off tropical fragrances. Or maybe you?re lying side by side with a loved one as you both relax to an aromatherapy foot scrub and full-body couples massage. Or perhaps you're getting your shoulders massaged as you rethink your decision to play Sisyphus in the town play.

These are just a few examples of the stress-relieving treatments you can experience at Chi Wellness Retreat, where therapists use both ancient and modern techniques with a singular goal: well being. They manage pain with Chinese herbal treatments and hot footbaths, as well as Swedish, deep-tissue, and pregnancy massages that induce feelings of deep relaxation and target sources of discomfort and tension.
