What You'll Get
Like 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 $89, you get a one-and-a-half-hour signature massage, a half-hour facial and a three-month VIP membership to Avalon Massage & Bodyworks (a $195 value), opposite the Galleria.
As a multifaceted wellness center, Avalon Massage & Bodyworks offers a variety of massages, relaxation techniques, and alternative forms of healing. Put your overworked muscles in the hands of Avalon's own trained and certified therapists during a one-and-a-half hour signature massage (a $100 value for members), in which pressure points are kneaded and deep tissues are tenderized with a combination of Thai stretches and Shiatsu techniques, while troubles are melted away with a combination of hot stones and essential oils. After your massage, refreshen your expression with a 30-minute facial, which will cleanse and nourish pallid personages while exfoliating pores and purging them of dirt and long standing debts, leaving it properly stimulated, detoxed, and well-circulating. Use your three-month VIP membership (a combined $45 value) to bliss out in the members-only whirlpool spa, or exercise newly nimble limbs in the members-only workout facility. VIPs get reduced prices on massages and can make standing massage appointments to fit busy schedules. Access extends to all family members older than age 17 who are no longer able to skateboard off the garage unscathed, and includes guest passes for friends and distant-er relatives who accompany you during your massage.
Avalon Massage & Bodywork's trained therapists use hypoallergenic essential lotions and aromatherapy oils in every massage unless otherwise requested. Bring in your own aroma-therapeutic blend of gym socks and pickle juice to enjoy a form of relaxation that only a mother's nose could love. Call to schedule an appointment.
Five Google Mappers give the Avalon School of Massage (where Avalon Massage & Bodyworks massage therapists get their training) a perfect five-star average, and four Insider Pagers give it a four-star average:
- My wife and I have received massages from this school many times. We have also received massages from other Professional venues. I have to say, that most of these students providing the massages are top-notch. – colton, Google Maps
- Im glad I found Avalon. I learned so much, the teachers there wore [sic] so attentive and knowledgeable. The office staff was so nice and helpful. The students there give such a great massage not that fluff and buff kinda stuff like other places. – Cat C., Insider Pages
