Licensed massage therapist Laura Holt relieves stress and muscle kinks with 30- and 60-minute massages. During a Swedish massage, Laura bathes backs in nourishing oils before employing techniques such as rolling, kneading, and effleurage, a circular stroke made with the palm, in an effort to relieve pain, decrease stress, and enhance the flexibility of phantom limbs. Laura's fingers dive deeper into musculature layers during a deep-tissue massage, which aims to release built-up toxins as well as to relieve tension caused by misalignment, lingering injuries, and taxing repetitive motions. Like challenging an elephant to a game of Twister, the deep-tissue session commonly results in soreness, and Laura suggests drinking plenty of water after the treatments to flush out toxins. Groupon clients may upgrade from a 60-minute massage to a 90-minute massage for an extra $30.
