Like portrait painting, massage demands skillful hands, bold strokes, and a subject who can sit still. Become a human canvas with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a 60-minute custom medical massage at Atlas Medical Massage in Grand Ledge (a $50 value).
Certified kneading therapist Tori Martin, who believes that massages play a significant role in improving overall well-being, works on the attachments of the muscles—not just the muscle itself—to help heal bodies during custom medical massages. Before beginning each treatment, Tori examines relaxation-seekers' problem areas, taking into account their medical history, tissue features, and whether or not they’re allergic to hands. She then launches into her eight-step protocol, wielding focused and deep strokes and stretches to alleviate aches and strengthen connective tissue inside a private treatment room with soft lighting and gentle music. Tori’s sessions, which have a wide range of health and wellness benefits, have been known to reduce inflamation, alleviate chronic joint issues, and prepare knees for Russian folk dancing.
