$33 for a 60-Minute Massage ($85 Value)
The Curatio Rehabilitation team soothes muscles with the long kneads of Swedish massage or targets chronic pain with a more rigorous deep-tissue massage.
The massage therapists at Curatio Rehabilitation come from backgrounds in neuromuscular therapy and the treatment of chronic pain. Each of their customizable sessions begins with a consultation to discuss the desired outcome, source of pain, and meaning of suffering. The therapists use Swedish and deep-tissue techniques to relieve muscle knots, sports massage techniques to soothe sore hockey pads, and prenatal massage techniques for expecting mothers. Their specialty, neuromuscular massage, is designed to alleviate pain with deep strokes targeted at the nerves. Sessions are complemented by a choice of aromatherapy oils or organic, odorless shea butter.
