Inaccessible to the hands, back musculature often falls prey to freeloading "kick me" signs and hitchhiking parrots. Liberate a beleaguered back with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a one-hour deep-tissue, Swedish, or hot-stone massage or a reflexology session at Body Restoration in Hopkinton (up to an $80 value).
At Body Restoration, a professional covey of massage therapists coaxes the unwanted tension and stress out of each client with healing practices that have been perfected over thousands of years. During each deep-tissue massage, the expert muscle kneaders will apply pressure directly to deep trigger points, helping to stimulate relaxation, reduce pain, and boost empathy for bread dough. The deep-tissue massage—its potent movements recommended for physically active individuals—can also aid in recovery from sports-related injuries. Or study muscle twitches to determine whether the body seeks the rhythmic strokes of a Swedish massage, the detoxifying effects of a hot-stone massage, or the invigorating precision of reflexology. The natural reflexology system targets trigger points in the feet to improve circulation and clear congestion in other parts of the body. By restoring balance to these areas, the reflexology massage aims to unleash the body's natural healing abilities, allowing it to skip over vitamin commercials during exciting game-show dreams.
Body Restoration owner Christine St. Andre states on her website that “Properly applied healing touch is one of the most amazing gifts a person can experience." She and her team of massage therapists gift clients with that experience using a variety of massage techniques to tackle muscle tensions and body aches. To accomplish this, their fingers gently glide along backs, searching out any knots that require a deeper kneading. Hot stones, aromatherapy, and anything narrated by Morgan Freeman also soothe clients during sessions.
