Muscles, like the tails of sleeping cats or levers labeled “drain ocean,” were never meant to be pulled. Reverse the damage with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get a 60-minute couples massage at Total Serenity (a $130 value). Each client may choose from the following massage modalities:
- Deep tissue
- Lymphatic drainage
Licensed massage therapists Cindy Linville and Amy Crecelius lull side-by-side couples into deep calm by administering the recumbent pair’s choice of healing bodywork. To start each session, Cindy and Amy consult with couples to determine any sources of deep tension. As delicate ceiling tapestries help canopy the room in low light, muscle menders can employ firm, deep-tissue techniques to coax away chronic aches, or long, Swedish strokes to promote circulation. While the sore joints of expectant mothers slacken beneath relaxing prenatal techniques, a sports massage can pamper expectant fathers with foam-finger kneading.
