For centuries mankind has envied pizza dough and wondered how we too could be kneaded to relaxed, savory states without paying for the luxury of being escorted via wooden paddle to a Sicilian brick oven. Get pounded into the shape of relaxation with today's Groupon: for $40, you get your choice of a one-hour massage or a 75-minute reflexology foot treatment (an $80 value) at BodySense Massage, located on Bassett Street.
Inside a tranquil massage emporium, BodySense's trained therapists help clients unwind both mentally and physically with a plethora of muscle-manipulation services. A one-hour massage session rewards hardworking torsos with a Swedish, sports, or deep-tissue treatment. The Swedish massage uses an array of flowing strokes to squish out underskin stress and untie flesh knots, transforming tense bodies into smooth, snuggly spirit satchels. A deep-tissue massage is recommended to release chronic tension and pain, and those with sports-related concerns can target troublesome areas with the sports massage, which delves deeply into muscles and connective tissue to help you rise up and crush the shot-putting competition.
Alternatively, treat your feet to 75 minutes of foot reflexology, a technique that applies specialized pressure to your natural boots to improve circulation and kick the body into self-healing mode. Each session includes a soothing aromatherapy foot bath, which is accompanied by an exfoliating herbal scrub and a nostril-tickling lavender eye pillow.
BodySense's focus on relaxation is evident in its treatment rooms; each is outfitted with a private steam shower to provide a warm, vaporous finale that will leave you feeling as loose and carefree as a teenage jellyfish.
