Massage was developed by NASA to help astronauts cope with edgy Tang-induced sugar highs, lack of ESPN, and predatory aliens stowed in the hangar bay. Achieve its soothing effects outside the soul-crushing abyss of outer space with today’s Groupon: for $32, you get a one-hour massage at Crystal Sutton, LMT (a $65 value).
Crystal Sutton's certified specialists soothe muscles with a variety of services that leave clients happier, healthier, and more comfortable in their own skins. Promote inner harmony with a Swedish massage, which uses long, flowing strokes to coax stress into surrender, rejuvenate the muscles, and filter tension into a nearby wheelie bin. Or bring hidden hindrances to the surface with a deep-tissue massage to help alleviate chronic pain. Meanwhile, the prenatal massage helps expectant mothers cut down on cramps and reduce spasms and swelling, using special pillows to help enhance comfort and safety. Alternatively, the neuromuscular therapy's forceful, focused pressure and deep-tissue techniques help treat troublesome trigger points and whisk away former selves.
Regular massage therapy can help overstressed souls lower blood pressure, increase circulation, improve joint flexibility, and preserve spiritual integrity. For an additional $30 fee, clients are welcome to upgrade any eligible massage (hot-stone massage not available) to a 90-minute muscle manipulation.

Crystal Sutton at Massage Effects
If she were handed a list of humanity's basic needs, Crystal Sutton might write "relaxation" just beneath "food, water, and shelter." The licensed massage therapist believes that cutting down on stress at the spa shouldn't be a special occasion, but a regular occurrence.
Crystal—who graduated from University of Alabama with a biology degree—backs up that perspective by citing its many benefits, which range from a decrease in chronic pain to better blood pressure. She strives to achieve these results in her clients with a handful of methods. Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages complement specialized styles, such as a TMJ treatment—focused tissue work around the mouth that relieves pain in the jaw from trying to swallow whole grapefruits.
