The Greeks invented muscles to keep bones from bleaching in the summer sun and to diversify the Olympic games' original lineup of chess tournaments. Give your muscles a well-deserved pat on the back with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a one-hour Swedish massage at Body Balance Wellness Center (a $65 value).
Run by one of H Texas Magazine's 2011 top doctors in Houston, Body Balance Wellness Center holistically addresses aches and pains with a plethora of clinical and spa services. The Swedish massage coddles dorsal regions with sweeping strokes to gently expunge built-up tension and colonies of runaway shirt labels. The massage therapist's skilled palms, coated in a water-based lotion, whisk away stresses with every muscle knead, granting 60 minutes of individualized attention to belabored backs, releasing healing forces within the body to maintain the overall health needed to live life to the fullest or arm-wrestle overbearing dream monsters.
