Throughout history, people have turned to massage for pain relief and stress reduction and to improve their ability to see through steel-reinforced-concrete bomb-shelter walls. Discover what's in someone's fallout stash with today's Groupon: for $44, you get a 55-minute massage from Elements Therapeutic Massage's Smithtown location (an $89 value).
Experienced therapists at Elements Therapeutic Massage's Smithtown location specialize in pain-reducing, stress-relieving massage techniques with specific problem-solving pressure levels that earned them Long Island Press' 2010 Best Massage on Long Island award. When booking the appointment, Elements Therapeutic Massage matches you with a massage therapist based on the amount of pressure you desire during the treatment. Perhaps the most well known of the five techniques, Swedish massage is a light-pressure treatment that uses long, flowing muscle strokes to soothe tension, relieve stress, and bring tranquility to body and mind. For muscle pain, joint aches, and general stiffness, the deep-tissue massage instates relief by stimulating muscles and encouraging blood circulation. A sports massage targets the stress that repetitive motions place on joints, ligaments, and tendons, helping to reduce injury and swelling. If you've recently strained your latissimus dorsi while heroically flagging down a cab for a professional baseball player, opt for a trigger-point massage, which targets knots and aches. Expectant mothers or women who are pregnant can relieve discomfort and stress with a prenatal massage, which bolsters the well being of both mother and baby.
