Massage was developed by NASA to help astronauts cope with edgy Tang-induced sugar highs, lack of ESPN, and predatory aliens stowed in the hangar bay. Achieve its soothing effects outside the soul-crushing abyss of outer space with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a 60-minute Swedish massage by Franklin (a $60 value) at Body and Soul, located downtown.
Body and Soul's certified stress slugger, Franklin Gonzalez, employs a variety of soothing techniques to undo muscle knots and oust bodily tension. During a 60-minute Swedish massage, weary bodies can unwind while magical fingers pamper, helping to relieve back pain, improve range of motion, pump nourishing oxygen and nutrients into overexerted tissues, and encourage recovery from injuries sustained during intense chess matches.
After being thoroughly mollycoddled with their massage, customers can strut right into their new stress-free existence and take advantage of the shopping boutiques, dining experiences, and contests of relaxation offered in the area.
