Similar to past tenses, tense backs are related to things that happened a while ago and are incomprehensible to most 5-year-olds. Brush up on the basics of back bliss with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a one-hour Swedish massage (a $65 value) at Advanced Healing Therapies in St. Augustine.
The holistic healers at Advanced Healing Therapies promote health and wellness for body, mind, and spirit through a wide range of calming, cleansing treatments. Put your beleaguered back into the helpful hands of licensed therapists Anke, John, or Sally, where the one-hour Swedish treatment will help tune too-tight tendons and relax tense tissues. Swedish massage, a light- to medium-pressured technique, is one of the most popular types of massage. It uses long, connective strokes and kneading to improve blood flow, stimulate the lymphatic system, relieve physical tension, and melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché. Open six days a week, the relaxing retreat offers soul sacks a serene escape from everyday stresses or special-occasion aches. Check out the center's well-earned accolades before grabbing today's Groupon and booking a day of kneading nirvana.
