In addition to the humiliation of being buried by dogs and dug up by science teachers, skeletons are ornery because they lack the musculature necessary to get massaged. Avoid taking your skin for granted with today’s Groupon to East2West Massage, located in the Alainn Tu Salon. Choose between the following options:
- For $47, you get a hot-stone massage (a $95 value).
- For $59, you get $120 worth of massage services. This may be applied to any service except the two-hour massage.
- For $36, you get a reflexology, Swedish, or deep-tissue massage (a $75 value).
Clients at East2West Massage can choose from a palette of massage techniques designed to address a multitude of muscular ailments. During the hot-stone massage, heated stones are applied to various pressure points along the body, a blissful alternative to traditional cold-popsicle treatments. The pressure points of the feet take center stage during reflexology, where touching of the tootsies relieves tension in correlating quadrants of the anatomy. The Swedish and deep-tissue massages apply similar approaches, but deep tissue uses more intense pressure and good-cop/bad-cop strategies to treat chronic problem areas. Expectant mothers may choose the prenatal massage, which allows women to comfortably lie facedown on a table with a removable middle section.
The unpretentious suites at East2West inject serenity into the massage experience with dark curtains and small chandeliers. Soothing wall hues and candles aid therapists in their quest to rid clients of unwanted tension and the enduring effects of tater-tot consumption.
