Like portrait painting, massage demands skillful hands, bold strokes, and a subject who can sit still. Become a human canvas with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a one-hour deep-tissue or Swedish massage from Clarissa Brown at The Powder Room in Brandon (up to a $65 value). Clarissa asks for three-day notice for Saturday appointments.
Within a private portion of The Powder Room, licensed therapist Clarissa Brown untangles stressed-out striations with a spectrum of massage techniques. Her specialty, the deep-tissue massage, delves into musculature to extract knots from their caves and relocate them to the welcoming embraces of dreadlocks. During each Swedish massage, Clarissa's dexterous digits dance across fascia to inspire healing with sweeping glides, short tapping steps, and a pas de deux performed to the tune of “Free Bird.” Natural essential oils enhance each stroke, and soothing upgrades such as hot stones ($10) can be added for an extra charge.
Though Clarissa Brown sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
