Without back muscles, people would have to keep each other upright with puppet strings and cautionary tales about amoebas. Be your own puppet master with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a 60-minute Swedish massage at Cassady Massage Therapy in Wheaton (a $75 value).
Licensed massage therapist Shawn Cassady digs down into more than 10 years of ache-relieving experience to relax backs, ease muscle tension, and relieve clients' stress through full-body massages. In a one-hour Swedish massage, Shawn uses long, kneading strokes to pacify overworked muscles and help ease aches and pains. Clients lie down in a quiet, private room to unwind spines and release knots, which can then return to their natural habitats on sailboats.
Cassady Massage Therapy
With a massage therapist's license and 10 years of experience in his pocket, Shawn Cassady knows his way around a back. He easily targets common complaints such as stress, muscle tension, and pain by zeroing in on each muscle and limb with practiced strokes and a fine sense for knots and kinks. His repertoire of styles ranges from the Swedish massage, which brings about a feeling of full-body relaxation with light-handed strokes and gentle pressure, to deep-tissue and sports massages, which are designed to help the bodies of athletes and overextended gym bags to recover from the rigors of an active lifestyle. Shawn's empathy for those who live with the ramifications of a physically demanding or stressful career runs deep, which is why he knocks 10% off his prices for military, police, and fire personnel.
