In addition to experiencing the humiliation of being buried by dogs and dug up by science teachers, skeletons are ornery because they lack the musculature necessary to get massaged. Avoid taking your skin for granted with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a 60-minute Swedish massage (an $80 value) at Continuum Massage Therapy in Torrington.
Continuum Massage Therapy's former-medical-assistant-turned-licensed-massage-therapist, Sandra Ransom, channels her medical knowledge into healing massages with customizable techniques. During the 60-minute Swedish massage patrons recline in a softly lit, neutrally colored room while Sandra glides her oiled hands through light to medium kneading, rolling, and percussion strokes personalized to the beat of a preferred polka tune. In addition to relieving muscular tension and pain, Swedish massages can chase stress away, boost circulation, and improve mental clarity so clients can enhance their focus at work and move one step closer to being able to turn book pages with their mind.
Continuum Massage Therapy
Massage therapist Sandra Ransom believes in the curative power of the human touch. As an expert in infant massage, she helps babies sleep more soundly and bond more readily with their mothers or cabbage farmers. In addition to providing infant massage, she teaches a four-week series on the topic, helping families bond with their newborn and support healthy development.
For adult clients, Sandra fosters relaxation with Swedish massage, and breaks up areas of concentrated tension with hot-stone and deep-tissue work. She also travels to offices for chair massages, which are performed while clients are still wearing their clothes or sandwich boards.
