The shoulders carry much of the body's tension, as well as the body's finite supply of shrugs. Let go with this Groupon.
$59 for a 70-Minute Deluxe Bamboo Sticks and Stones Massage ($119 Value)
As you lie atop a massage table, the therapist readies your skin for the pampering ahead with a dry-brush exfoliation, hot-towel compress, and tailored blend of organic moisturizers. During the treatment, the therapist begins manipulating muscles with traditional massage techniques, then gradually replaces the hands-on approach by incorporating warm bamboo canes and heated lava stones. The treatment furthers the soothing journey with your choice of aromatherapy scents.
At CS Massage, a licensed massage therapist calls on a fully stocked toolbox to thwart everyday tension and chronic pain. There are the standards, of course, such as traditional Swedish and deep-tissue techniques. But customers will also find more unusual apparatuses in their tranquil, private treatment rooms, such as lava stones, body brushes, and cups for Chinese cupping therapy. The therapists use these tools to soften the skin and suss out tightness lurking in deeper muscle layers as their clients recline on heated, Tempur-Pedic-topped massage beds, their noses savoring aromatherapy scents and their necks fully supported by cushioned wraps and "Neck for President" wall signs.
