Without the loosening effects of massage, shoulders would stiffen into immobility and fall victim to freeloading parrots and the burden of carrying Earth's heavyset brother, Girth. Pamper your perches with today's Groupon: for $85, you get a couples massage in a suite with candles and chocolates at Serene Bliss Massage Therapy in Cuyahoga Falls (a $170 value).
The licensed massage therapists at Serene Bliss Massage Therapy balance wobbly muscles with treatments that address the mind, body, and spirit. Candlelight dances warmly across the walls in a 600-square-foot private room, where handmade chocolates lie in decorative boxes, eager to indulge the relaxed palates of patrons and their hungry shadows. The one-hour massage sessions coddle couples with a choice of therapies, such as traditional Swedish strokes that enliven circulation, or an athletic massage that claims victory over performance-inhibiting injuries by improving strength, range of motion, and the ability to carry a slumbering right fielder to safety. Neuromuscular trigger-point therapy targets troubled tissue with firm, deep-reaching pressure, increasing flexibility and reducing pain. Contented sighs swirl toward the ceiling in the quiet rooms, drifting from patrons opting for the gentle motions of a reiki massage, which is backed by traditional holistic wisdom.
Serene Bliss Health & Wellness
Working out of a charming rehabilitated brick warehouse, four massage therapists perform six types of massages inside private treatment rooms, including classic Swedish, hot stone, athletic, and pregnancy. They also offer massage cupping therapy, a holistic healing treatment which loosens adhesions and lifts connective tissue, brings hydration and blood flow to body tissues, and drains excess fluids by opening lymphatic pathways.
