Today's Groupon is perfect for people who love a good massage but hate how, unlike pie, they can't take any of it home with them. For $39, you get a one-hour therapeutic massage (a $70 value) plus one Warm Hugs corn pillow ($8) at Keep in Touch Massage. This Groupon can only be used at Keep In Touch's Uptown location, which employs a staff of 18 professionally trained massage therapists and operates seven massage rooms, making it a perfect rest stop for frazzled holiday shoppers and neighborhood girls weary from years of fending off Billy Joel.Follow @Groupon_Says on Twitter.

Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
Providing anatomically specific massage therapy gives us the opportunity to heal people. It is so incredible to have a client come in [with] pain, discomfort, or reduced ability and be able to help them toward improving these conditions. We take time to educate the client so that they can best understand what created the condition... and what they can [or] should do to help themselves recover as fast as possible.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
[One of my favorites was] that of a young man who has cerebral palsy and spends his life bent over crutches. After one of his massages, he told me that he felt so good he thought he could limbo. The other [came from] an 86 year-old man who had a medical condition that had reduced one shoulder and one hip to the point where he had only 15% range-of-motion in both joints. [When] he came in for his next massage [he told] me: "Last time when I left, I felt so good that I skipped to my car."
How did you get started in the beauty industry? Did you have an "ah-ha" moment in life?
I grew up exposed to massage and have always had a gift for it, but in high school there was a basketball player...[to whom] I would give a forearm-and-hand massage before many games, and she would always come back and tell me how much better she played after those massages. I still see her for appointments.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Many massage practices [prioritize] the "rest and relaxation" service and spa-like atmosphere, and the therapeutic skill of the therapist is hit-or-miss at best. Our clinics focus on the skill of the therapists first and foremost. We provide a wide range of services including ones that will target your areas of concern with precision or... that will absolutely melt you. Our offices provide a cozy?and some might say quaint?atmosphere. Our north office (2206 44th Ave.) has free, on-street parking on 44th. Our downtown office has a free parking lot and metered street parking.
Oasis Massage and Wellness provides a space "where natural pain relief meets spa indulgence." In the comfort of a private room, a licensed massage therapist can focus on trouble areas buried in the fascia during firm deep-tissue sessions; administer flowing Swedish strokes for full-body rejuvenation; or employ more specialized modalities, including trigger-point massage. Foot reflexology can help promote head-to-toe healing, thanks to the practitioners' understanding that reflex points in the feet can impact the whole body. Clients may also pair bodywork with sumptuous add-ons: hot stones maximize relaxation, and aromatherapy treatments ensnare the senses with the help of essential oils.
