Massages, like intimidating club bouncers, weed out undesirables to facilitate tension-free evenings of the electric slide. Bend and hop with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a one-hour therapeutic massage at BodyWorks Massage Therapy, at the Franklin Athletic Club in Franklin (an $85 value).
At BodyWorks Massage Therapy’s fully licensed facility, massage therapists work away tension from afflicted backs in soothing, private massage rooms augmented by relaxing music, aromatherapy, and the sounds of a waterfall. Customers stretch out along a heated table for the therapeutic massage, a combination of massage strategies to address injuries, chronic pain, tightness, and to allay shoulder-blade agoraphobia. Massage recipients discuss their treatment goals and preferences with therapists prior to the massage, allowing therapists to customize their technique. Massage styles may include deep-tissue massage and trigger therapy, to target specific muscle knots for intensive muscle-stress relief, myofascial massage, hydrotherapy, and assisted stretching to recreate a Mobius strip with the arms.
BodyWorks Massage Therapy
Tightness from days spent at the desk. Aches from a weekend of flag football. Back spasms from marathon games of Twister. With agile fingers trained in therapeutic muscle manipulation, BodyWorks Massage Therapy's licensed therapists alleviate all manner of bodily pains with combinations of eight massage modalities, including Swedish, deep tissue, neuromuscular therapy, and trigger point. Available at two locations––one within the Franklin Athletic Club, and the other at the Murfreesboro Athletic Club, opening October 1, 2013––the private treatment rooms submerge clients' senses in stress-slaking stimulation: soothing scents of aromatherapy, the relaxing touch of a heated bed, and recordings of an otter gargling with fresh ocean water.
