What You'll Get
Without the touch of a hand, loved ones could not be comforted, business transactions would remain impersonal, and football would be played entirely by kicking a ball through a goal.

Choose from the following options:

A graduate of the Body Therapy Institute, Body Balance Spa owner and certified massage therapist Carrie Boucher recalibrates bodies and relieves raw muscles with a range of targeted massage services. A treatment designed to promote overall wellness and a lifelong love of gravlax, the lighter-touch Swedish massage concentrates on calming the muscle system, improving circulation, and promoting relaxation to a middle-management rank. Athletes can lengthen long jumps and lower limbo poles by keeping individual muscles working more efficiently thanks to a myofascial––or deep-tissue––massage. A slower paced massage, this technique spotlights the connective tissues surrounding the muscles, releasing tension, eliminating adhesions between muscle groups, and disseminating deep feelings of relaxation. Helpful for clients suffering from hypertension, anxiety, insomnia, or muscle pain, integrative reflexology massage works by stimulating reflex areas in the hands and feet, which correspond to every part of the body, including the organs, glands, and the brain's staff of daydream writers. This type of massage also boosts lymphatic, nerve, and blood circulation and whittles away muscular tension in the neck, shoulders, elbows, hip, sciatic area, and back.
Though Body Balance Spa offers some discounts and packages, this Groupon is still the best deal around.
