Inspired by her mother’s return to school, Tiffany Stefura decided to pursue her passion for massage therapy five years ago. Since then, she has developed her own personable, unrushed approach that keeps her clients returning while discouraging chronic aches from doing the same. Tiffany took over AnExquisite Massage in 2011, and continues to build her clientele through her therapeutic kneadings. Imbuing her space with soothing ocean sounds and animal-print accents, Tiffany welcomes repeat and unique visitors, while keeping a space open for her mother to eventually join her in the practice.

As the name implies, Silverfox Massage & Crafts has not one but two raisons d'etre. Primarily, muscles are assuaged of their aches and tension with seven types of massages, ranging from Swedish to myofascial release massage with optional hand paraffin dips. But it's more than just untying knotted muscles and retying them into decorative bows; Silverfox also offers goodies such as genuine handmade, hand-sewn leather bags and hand-painted notebooks, whose ring- or cord-bound covers guard journal entries and Game Boy cheat codes in more than 30 designs.
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.
