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 $35, you get a 60-minute massage (a $70 value) at Bella Sundries Therapeutic Massage.
The licensed therapists at Bella Sundries attack muscle tension and stress armed with a vast arsenal of massage techniques. Well-versed in a variety of disciplines, from the deep, comforting strokes of Swedish massage to the energy transference method of Reiki, Jennifer Adams and Tonya Ben Mansour release muscle tension, improve circulation, and undo knots with the fervor of a repentant boy scout. For the same hourly rate, the feather-fingered therapists adapt any massage to the patient's preference. Clients can customize sessions with a bevy of add-ons ($25 each), including hot-stone therapy, in which heated basaltic rocks help loosen muscles and induce relaxation, or a paraffin application to the hands and feet, soothing joint pain.
Unlike other spas that include consultations and rehearsals for one-woman shows in the allotted massage time, the attentive spinal technicians at Bella Sundries spend the entire 60 minutes working out kinks, keeping the 15-minute consultation off the clock.
