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 $59, you get a 30-minute floatation session, one-hour steam and sauna, chiropractic session, and 30-minute massage (a $334 value) at Common Ground Everett House, located on Northeast Everett Street.
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 half-hour of mind-mellowing quietude in a flotation tank that will leave patrons more centered than an improperly formatted Word document. Clients can head to the sauna and steam room for an hour of hydro-powered relaxation. Also included is a 30-minute massage with one of Common Ground's veteran kneaders, whose repertoires include Thai, deep tissue, prenatal and Swedish, all delivered with the tender firmness of a rap battle between mother and child. The piece de resistance is a visit with chiropractor Dr. Elliott Mantell to relieve the aches and cricks that invariably accumulate during the holiday season. The multitude of services offered under 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.
- Quiet and mellow atmosphere with massage, chiropractic, acupuncture and lots of other new age and holistic healings. I love this place! – my cousin Vinnie, Citysearch
- What a great way to get away from it all and detox too! I have been it a few times now to steam & sauna and just did a float in the sensory depervation tank. What an experience! – eclecticqueen, Citysearch
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.
