Getting a massage is a decadent way to pamper yourself, much like brushing your hair with the bones of a famous person. Live lavishly with this Groupon.
$37 for a 60-Minute Swedish or Deep-Tissue Massage (Up to $75 Value)
During a Swedish massage, a licensed massage therapist applies oils or lotion before kneading, rolling, and gently drumming her hands over muscles. The treatment aims to simultaneously enhance circulation and soothe your body. Alternatively, a deep-tissue massage digs deeper to deal with chronic aches.
Anointed Hands Massage Therapy
Licensed massage therapist Tamika Phill LA#5683 believes that a first-rate massage takes more than two hands and a table. She tries to cultivate a sense of openness and trust between herself and each client, thereby increasing the body's receptiveness to her touch. With modalities that range from Swedish massage to neuromuscular therapy—a technique that incorporates soft-tissue work and makes use of the body's natural healing powers—she surrounds muscles and minds with calm.
Tamika adjusts her manipulations to suit various specialty groups. Her geriatric massages work to broaden elderly patrons' range of motion, whereas 15-minute chair massages at corporate offices relieve the soreness caused by body-slamming, cantankerous copy machines. She also travels to special events, including birthday and graduation parties. Her two-hour couples-massage service deviates from the typical two-bed treatment: she pampers one guest at a time, demonstrating her methods to the other partner so they can perform the relaxing process at home.
