Spines are fickle beasts, easily irked by day-to-day situations like slouching over a keyboard or being stepped on by a rhinoceros. Put an out-of-whack support beam back in-whack with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a chiropractic session (a $249 value), one-hour steam and sauna (a $15 value), and a one-hour floatation session (a $45 value) or 30-minute massage (a $45 value) at Common Ground Everett House in Kerns (a $309 value).
A community of wellness seekers and palliation practitioners comes together at Common Ground Everett House, a gathering place that promotes inner peace and holistic healing. Today's deal nets you a carnival of karmic and corporeal delights beginning with a chiropractic evaluation and treatment from chiropractor Dr. Elliott Mantell, practicing since 1981, to provide recommendations to improve spinal, nervous, and muscular systems as well as relieve aches and cricks, followed by an hour of hydro-powered relaxation in the sauna and steam room.
Clients can then choose to finalize their tranquil journeys with an hour of mind-mellowing quietude in a samadhi flotation tank that will leave them more centered than an improperly formatted Word document, or a 30-minute massage from one of Common Ground's veteran kneaders, whose repertoires include thai, deep-tissue, prenatal, and Swedish. The multitude of services offered with this Groupon can be stretched over multiple visits, but note that reservations are required and it is suggested that the chiropractic appointment is scheduled before the massage. X-rays are not included, but can be purchased at a discounted rate if needed.
Everett House Healing Center
Though Everett House Healing Center has changed since its inception in 1979, the center's devotion to traditional preventive healing has not. On the grounds of the multibuilding facility, holistic practitioners work alongside resident chiropractors to deliver such stress-relieving spa services as Swedish massages and organic facials. They can also shelter guests inside a Samadhi flotation tank filled with 10 inches of water and 800 pounds of epsom salt, a treatment that is said to detoxify muscles and alleviate tension while lowering the heart rates of hummingbirds who have had too much cappuccino.
Elsewhere in the facility, a cedar sauna wafts dry heat over bodies to expunge impurities from skin, and a tiled steam room's therapeutic vapors clear the respiratory system. Guest can also relax in the new salt water hot tub. The center maintains a coed, clothing-optional environment aside from limited women-only hours.
