Deep-tissue massages target hard-to-reach pain, boring through skin crust and muscular mantles to soothe the irascible dinosaur societies at the center of every human. Experience intense relief with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a 60-minute deep-tissue massage (a $90 value) at Écarg Therapeutic Bodyworks in New Haven.
With targeted touch therapy designed to reach the recesses of muscular discomfort, Écarg sends search parties after spelunking stressors with their deep-tissue massages. During the 60-minute session, certified tendon twister Lorna Ellis-Harding kneads away chronic aches in anatomical trouble spots strewn liberally across necks, backs, and shoulders. This expert-administered knead-down helps to unknot cranky kinks with expert strokes, strikes, and the help of an octane-powered rolling pin. Deep-tissue treatments release long-lurking toxins responsible for mental and physical exhaustion, parting the pea soup with a moment of clarity that will live beyond visits to Écarg's confines. Aerated individuals use their newfound clearheadedness and rubberized being to achieve higher productivity, contagiously relax loved ones, or finally beat Galaga.
Thanks to the vigorous vetting of bodily interlopers, massage recipients may experience some residual soreness in the days following their therapeutic thrashing. In order to facilitate the express expulsion of toxins and the opening of cellular swimming pools, Écarg's tension tamers recommend steady swallows of clear, crisp water.

Though her ability to untie knots rivals that of a sailor, licensed massage therapist Lorna Ellis-Harding has been relieving aches and pains for long enough to understand the limitations of massage. Rather than rely solely on her Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports techniques, she draws from other areas of traditional and alternative medicine to craft treatment plans for the whole body. Her acupressure massages, for example, incorporate the principles of Eastern acupuncture to apply healing pressure to specific points of energy across the body. When she isn’t balancing energy or coaxing out toxins with gentle lymphatic-drainage techniques, Lorna consults with other local businesses to help her clients manage their weight and make healthful lifestyle decisions, such as refraining from eating french fries while juggling chainsaws.
