What You'll Get
Like cars, human beings require occasional corrective bodywork, custom finishing, and fresh coats of wax to avoid being towed away and crushed into a cube. Keep your chassis classy with today's Groupon: for $50, new clients get $100 worth of services at Body Techniques in Alameda or towards an on-site personal office visit.
Body Techniques' trademark on-site treatment ($65 per hour) sets up at workplaces to de-stress corporate corpuses with a blend of spa services that reward hard work while boosting productivity. Treat the aches associated with desk work, grape mashing, or desk smashing with therapeutic massages in a suite of styles, from subtle, rejuvenating Swedish ($59 for an hour), to the finger-fluttering Shiatsu and sultry gravitas of hot stone ($69 per hour each). The expert therapists can also pinpoint prickly pain problems with acupuncture services aimed at regulating the body's energy flow to more closely resemble that of a greased waterslide ($99). An initial treatment with the 2,000-year-old practice includes a consultation and runs 90 minutes.

About Body Techniques
Inside private rooms bathed in earthy hues and filled with simple furnishings, Body Techniques' staff treats patients with holistic services designed to soothe the body and mind. The studio's massage-therapy sessions, acupuncture treatments, and stress-management programs aim to reduce stress and bolster bodily health without relying on medications or itchy cybernetic implants.

The clinic's healing hands can travel to corporate clients and offices to conduct onsite massages, lead health-education classes, and imitate ocean-wave sounds for noontime naps.
