Maximum Image's crack team of massage therapists and soreness snipers tackle ache and anguish in one-hour massages ($85) in a number of massage styles. The Swedish massage holistically hones in on tense muscles and stress lodes, increasing circulation and rejuvenating the body through smooth strokes. The sports massage uses similar unwinding undulations with a focus on specific problem areas. Deep-sea divers desiring a deeper decompression after a long day at the underwater office may go for the deep-tissue massage and its relief of chronic pain and release of toxins. Hot-stone massages place heated mini-boulders on specific areas to lava-loosen muscle tension, while the Reiki energy treatment non-invasively aligns body, mind, and spirit through fixed hand positions and meditative wonderment. There is no buy limit on today's Groupon, so feel free to try them all.
Dr. Martin E. Cutler?s more than 30 year career is defined by his mastery of new technology. In the ?70s, he was one of the first area doctors to offer no-stitch cataract lens replacement. Today, he helps patients reduce their dependence on glasses with LASIK and makes reading glasses obsolete with conductive keratoplasty, the first FDA-approved procedure that sharpens one?s up-close vision and makes Moby Dick easier to understand.
Alongside Dr. Cutler?s opthalmology center stands a medical spa staffed by licensed aestheticians. With the aid of the Palomar StarLux system, they harness the power of intense pulse light to oust unwanted fuzz from anywhere on the body. They also pair facials with botanical Nelly de Vuyst products and deep-clean pores with PCA chemical peels, and offer free skin analyses to help patients find the best course of treatment or the best way to flaunt a Jay Leno?shaped birthmark.

gohspa?whose prefix is a hidden acronym of green, organic, holistic?is a beauty haven where staffers use purified water and skincare formulas that are organic, vegan, and, upon request, gluten free. According to Woburn Advocate blogger and organic-lifestyle advocate Betsy Wild, owner Beth Gaudette has been a green cosmetologist for more than 20 years and has constructed her spa with "low VOC paint, cork floors, LED lighting, low flush toilets, energy efficient washers, dryers, heating and cooling systems, [and] organic towels." The building is unsurprisingly LEED-certified, and the spa services have the safety and well-being of both staff and clients in mind. Pedicures, for example, take place in a pipeless unit featuring a filtered dual-water system, with polish that is free of formaldehyde, camphor, or glitter harvested from radioactive pixies.
