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 $59, you get a 90-minute Swedish massage and a 30-minute infrared sauna session at Ahhh! Massage, located in Sparks (a $125 value).
The trained, knot-defying massage therapists at Ahhh! Massage combat muscle rigidity and body stiffness with practiced techniques in a tranquil, upscale setting. The 90-minute Swedish massage manipulates muscles with firm pressure and steady strokes to loosen up physiques in tropical-themed treatment rooms, leaving patrons feeling as kneaded and refreshed as a pineapple-topped pizza. Benefits of massage can include boosted circulation, enhanced health, and a robust dose of relaxation.
Guests can lounge for 30 minutes in the infrared sauna, which harnesses the ameliorative power of invisible, far-infrared light to banish toxins from the body. Post-sauna therapy, bodies reap the benefits of increased blood flow to the cardiovascular and immune systems, joint-inflexibility relief, and a noticeable improvement in French vocabulary retention.
The massage therapists at Ahhh! Massage want each of their treatments to feel like a vacation from the stresses of daily life. They seem to have taken this idea to its local extreme, decorating their treatment rooms so that each resembles an exotic locale: Hawaii, Fiji, and the Caribbean islands are all represented. Along with the therapists’ soothing Swedish, therapeutic, deep-tissue, or prenatal massage strokes, the tropical decor encourages guests to slip into a state of relaxation disturbed only by the banging of steel drums or the howl of a lonely toucan. When they aren’t tending to backs and shoulders, the staffers perform hot-oil scalp massages and cleansing foot scrubs; the breezy facility also houses an infrared sauna and hydraulic massage beds.
