The burden of aches and pains makes it impossible for humans to run as fast as cheetahs, which is why the human diet is virtually devoid of gazelle meat. Keep fast food from getting away with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a 70-minute massage at AREMEL Massage Therapy & Associates in Virginia Beach (a $60 value).
The certified massage therapists at AREMEL bring more than 30 years of combined know-how to their signature 70-minute massage, which spans multiple soul- and sinew-soothing modalities. Tense necks and backs succumb to Swedish and relaxation techniques, which kick-start circulation while easing the crippling effects of pent-up stress and neck-hugging koalas. Those suffering from subterranean aches can opt for a therapeutic deep-tissue massage, which deploys a tactical array of slow, targeted strokes to penetrate layers of muscle, relieve chronic patterns of tension, and aid in the recovery of injuries. Sports massages ease pain in more active clients such as athletes or athlete impersonators, and pregnancy massages strive to ease joint pain and decrease arm and leg swelling.
