For centuries mankind has envied pizza dough and wondered how we too could be kneaded to relaxed, savory states without paying for the luxury of being escorted via wooden paddle to a Sicilian brick oven. Lose the pizza envy with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get your choice of a 60-minute Swedish massage (a $65 value) or a 60-minute deep-tissue/sports massage (a $70 value) at Eden Massage & Spa on East Oakland Park Boulevard.
Eden Massage’s licensed therapists specialize in relieving pain; they’ve used their soothing skills to treat everything from carpal tunnel and sciatica to headaches and chronic fatigue. If you opt for the deep-tissue/sports knead, one of Eden’s therapists will use firm pressure to delve deeply into muscles and connective tissue to release the tension that prohibits you from bench-pressing goats. The Swedish massage is a lighter technique geared more toward relaxation. It uses long, sweeping strokes, friction, kneading, chopping movements, and gentle pulling of appendages to relieve physical tension, stimulate the lymphatic system, and melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché.
Eden Massage was created to help people combat pain and stress without resorting to a diet that consists of sheet cake frosted with wine-soaked Camembert. The founder, Grace Paul, is a licensed massage therapist who leads her staff of experts in the art of returning a sunshiny feeling to the body non-intravenously.
