Reflexes help the body instantaneously react to sudden provocation, such as an unexpected high-five from a cool older cousin or an even more unexpected high-five from a skateboard. Keep involuntary defenses primed with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a one-hour foot-reflexology treatment at Elements of Health (a $70 value).
A bastion of naturopathy, Elements of Health taps into the body’s innate healing abilities to unblock energy traffic jams and dispel toxic buildup with a variety of holistic treatments. During foot-reflexology sessions, health practitioner Kate Studebaker pores over each foot’s roadmap, pinning pressure points with her digits to release trapped sighs and stimulate circulation. The focused foot kneading alleviates tension throughout the body by activating nervous-system pathways that are said to connect specific areas of the foot to other bodily regions. As Studebaker manipulates and stretches aching arches and tired toes, clients can lay back and let relaxation wash over them or keep hands busy by pitting them against each other in a thumb war.
