Massages soothe muscles sore from naps in uncomfortable chairs and long nights of aggressive rapid eye movement. Recover from relaxing with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get a romantic couples massage and chocolates at Complimentary Health (a $140 value).
Massage therapist Cindy Jones draws on her teaching experience at the Kansas Massage Institute to send couples' sore muscles on simultaneous, 60-minute vacations. Cindy and her partner use the long, flowing strokes of Swedish-style bodywork to improve range of motion in struggling musculature or vocal range in struggling glee-club members. Combined with gentle kneading and effleurage, the muscle menders stimulate blood circulation in limbs without suggesting that clients engage in excessive air-guitar windmilling. At the end of their session, couples gaze down at their pillows to discover complimentary chocolates waiting to be savored.
