While it doesn't provide the discomfort and high ticket prices associated with an airport pat-down, a massage is still an effective tool for discovering concealed knives and small firearms. Prove you’re not packing in the most relaxing way with today’s Groupon. For $49, you get one 60-minute massage combined with a scalp and face massage and a foot revitalization at Body Mechanix Therapeutic Massage (a $120 value). Owned and operated by Memphis locals, the spa is located on Poplar Avenue.
Your voyage to serenity starts with one of three distinct body massages, each of which includes a skilled massage therapist to expertly remove knots from your muscles like a master sailor with surprisingly kempt hands. The ever-popular Swedish massage can melt your muscles like beeswax, erase tension, improve blood flow, and awaken the lymphatic system. If you’ve been pounding the pavement in preparation for a marathon or enduring rigorous training, recharge with a sports massage designed to enhance endurance and reduce recovery time. Or massage away the back pain that stems from carrying around a person in your body with a careful pregnancy massage.
With the core set to calm, move to where the spine meets the mind with a scalp and face massage. Each session includes hot-towel treatments designed to alleviate lingering headaches and sinus pressure. Then make each little piggy go to market for a bounty of bliss with Body Mechanix’ signature minty foot revitalization. Following a peppermint-infused scrubbing massage, hot towels swoop in to seal the renewed freshness.
Body Mechanix boasts an impressive lineup of licensed therapists. Take Pam, for instance, who spent 23 years as a surgical nurse before translating her precision to the massage table for the last decade. Or Rick, a black belt in the facial kinetic arts, who's capable of breaking through 10 bricks using only his kneading thumbs and has taught workshops in seated massage and neck techniques. In Body Mechanix’ cozy atmosphere, the friendly staff invites you to relax in the classic, neuromusculoskeletal way.
