Giving yourself a back massage is impossible, much like keeping your eyes open while sneezing or reading an entire book. Give spines a rest with today’s Groupon to AnewU Healing and Spa: for $45, you get a one-hour hot-basalt-stone massage (a $99 value).
Zo Houseman harnesses more than 15 years as a licensed therapist to loosen clenched muscles with AnewU Healing and Spa’s range of soothing massages. The therapist begins by adorning the body with smooth, warm basalt stones, which pinpoint particular sore spots and, like putting an ill-fitting polyester suit in the microwave, loosen tightness with penetrating heat. Dexterous digits then unsnarl muscular tangles from head to toe, relieving stress and easing pain over a full hour of indulgence.
Within the relaxation haven, crimson and cream walls surround retro-inspired accents of starburst lights and patterned rugs. Flourishing houseplants fill the space with oxygen in exchange for evening massages and periodic root pedicures, and private treatment beds nestle clients in soft white terrycloth.
