As with a potato, if the human body is not properly mashed and moisturized, it will never be used for anything more than a science-project battery. Make sure your body is properly fluffed and buttered with today's soothing Groupon: for $39, you get a 70-minute hot-stone massage at Amae Tranquility Massage (an $80 value) in Kingwood.
As the chief practitioner at Amae Tranquility Massage, licensed massage therapist Regina orchestrates a team of therapists adept at shooing away stress and soreness from beleaguered bodies with massages. Seventy-minute hot-stone massages meld the long, flowing strokes of Swedish relaxation massage with warm stones that soothe sore body parts. While subjects lie on an eco-friendly massage table covered with microfiber linens, their senses float away on fragrance clouds wafting from the session's aromatherapy and organic massage oils. Regular massage therapy can yield a host of benefits including improved circulation and muscle fibers that sing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching like the lead singer in a Norwegian death-metal barbershop quartet.
Amae Tranquility Massage
Amae Tranquility Massage's licensed therapist melds Eastern and Western techniques to help clients heal their bodies and calm their minds. When clients arrive at the studio, they're led to a private treatment room that's softly lit and painted in calming purple hues. Once inside, they settle onto a massage table draped in linens from Comphy Co., the same brand used by the Ritz Carlton and the Spa at the Four Seasons. Though clients are welcome to just sit back, relax, and reflect on life or the time they spent in timeout that day, they can also choose to supercharge the massage session with add-ons such as body scrubs and wraps.
