Having sore muscles, like signing a five-year lease or wearing lead socks, makes it difficult to move. Evict tensely wound tenants with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a one-hour Swedish or deep-tissue massage, with custom aromatherapy for both, at Chimaera Massage in Norman (a $60 value).
Chimaera Massage's cadre of talented massage therapists knead sore muscles and unknot tangled connective tissue inside private candlelit rooms with bubbling fountains and relaxing music. Guests snuggle face-first into a plush massage table and zone out as the therapist presses tense bodies with gentle Swedish-massage strokes that can relieve muscular tension and promote blood flow. The deep-tissue massage, with its stronger strokes and intense pressure, can work out the tightest knots and toughest differential equations. A custom blend of sunflower, apricot-kernel, and sweet-almond massage oils reduces friction, and massage-accompanying aromatherapy invigorates the senses with such soothing scents as chamomile, ginger, and lavender.
After nimble fingers perform their last destressing strokes, the therapist wipes away excess oils with a complimentary hot-towel treatment or novelty-size blotting sheet. Guests can then unwind further with a glass of chilled water or lemonade or a steaming cup of herbal tea.
