Like portrait painting, massage demands skillful hands, bold strokes, and a model who can sit still. Become a human canvas with today’s Groupon: for $60, you get a Balanced Body Blend massage package at Balanced Body Massage & Pilates, located in the Edgewater building in Mill Creek (a $130 value). The package includes the following:
- A 60-minute massage that blends hot-stone, deep-tissue, and relaxation massage methods
- A shea-butter foot rub<p>
Balanced Body Massage & Pilates’s team of licensed massage therapists appeases achy muscles with rubdowns that take place in private rooms where gentle music drifts through the air. During the 60-minute full-body massage session, nimble fingers trace road maps of Luxembourg on backs, limbs, heads, necks, and shoulders. Soothing relaxation strokes instill tranquility, and more therapeutic deep-tissue pressure helps to improve posture and treat chronic and acute muscle aches. Heated stones infuse muscles with calming warmth to banish stress. Afterwards, a shea-butter foot rub lures tension out of pavement pounders, slathering them with hydrating serum, leaving them softer than a cloud fresh out of the dryer.
