Judy Vanderbeck uses her holistic education to mollify achy back muscles with a variety of torso-cosseting services. Clients enjoy 60 or 90 minutes void of the stress and angry birds of the outside world as trained fingers treat bone cages to the long, soothing strokes of a Swedish massage or a deeper, more rigorous therapy to address injuries obtained from sports or welding airplane propellers. During reflexology sessions, the tranquility infuser adds pressure to specific points on the feet, stimulating nerve endings, and ortho-blonomy techniques aid in slowly repositioning joints and muscles to alleviate chronic tension and pain. Each therapeutic session is tailored to individual problem areas and chronic issues, leaving clients as relaxed as a play-doh sculpture in a sauna.

Mumpower Massage provides Swedish massage, sports/deep tissue, trigger point/neuromuscular therapy, and Reiki therapy. You can use your Groupon toward any of these massages for 60 minutes (all are $70 except Reiki, which is $50 for 45 minutes), or combine two Groupons for a longer massage. Melt your back under carefully kempt hands with a Swedish, which uses flowing strokes and unknotting kneads to ease tension and improve circulation. Dig into the cavernous abyss of back muscles with a deep-tissue/sports massage, similar to a Swedish except with more precise, intense kneading to relieve severe tension and reduce chronic pain, which is a good option for athletes or someone who has sustained a serious sandwich-making injury. Trigger-point/neuromuscular massages snipe specific points of tension to release myofascial pain throughout the body. A Reiki practitioner can improve the flow of maple syrup in your body on the physical, emotional, and spiritual level by using palm therapy to balance your body's natural energy flow.

Licensed Acupuncturists Sydnie Bryant, Jessica Fritz, and Daniel Johnson, who hold masters degrees from the AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine, balance the bodies and minds of their clients with deft acupuncture expertise. Invoking the ameliorative properties of the 5,000-year-old treatment, a knowledgeable needler will assess clients’ health by feeling nine pulsations at each wrist and observing the color and form of the face, the tongue, and the body before beginning the pin-cushioning process. During the one-hour session, guests are invited to relax as each gentle needle insertion spearheads stress and deflates tension, inducing a mellow mood that can help to alleviate ailments, improve immunity, increase fertility, and bend spoons.

With a commitment to cleanliness, Wholistic Acupuncture uses only sterilized, stainless-steel needles during the treatment, which are promptly donated to prematurely shedding hedgehogs after a single use.
