Massage is a time-honored method of alleviating stress, as is the ancient art of crafting origami swans out of midterm exams. Ace relaxation with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $40 for a 60-minute deep-tissue massage (an $80 value)
- $62 for a 60-minute body-butter massage and a 45-minute exfoliating body polish (a $140 value)<p>
The deep-tissue massage uses intense pressure to reach the deepest layers of muscle and relieve tension there. Alternatively, the body-butter massage nurtures the skin with a cream- and cake-scented shea-butter whip, jojoba, and soybean oils rich in vitamin E. The exfoliating body polish sloughs off the outermost layer of dull, damaged skin cells with a cream-based exfoliant, leaving skin soft and smooth.
BodyWork by Lashea
Lashea Sabatini’s roster of massage therapies and body treatments sound indulgent—the shea-butter body whip, the aromatherapy oils—but often they couldn’t have a more serious intent. That’s because Lashea specializes in fertility massage, a modality that she says aids in conception by cleansing the digestive system, balancing the body’s cranial-sacral alignment, and stimulating the genes that cause humans to become successful doctors instead of manatees. Along with fertility massage, she offers Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal massage.
