Amateur massage therapists hone their craft by kneading dough, whereas advanced massage therapists disentangle folios in the Book of Kells. Illuminate knotty muscles with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get a one-hour signature massage at Elite Massage in Watertown (an $85 value).
The licensed bodywork experts at Elite Massage restore serenity and muscular awareness in clients through the techniques of deep-tissue massage. By relaxing soft tissues layer by layer, licensed therapists Polly and Jean connect with underlying fascia to relieve twinges and arthritic aches from inflammation or vacationing on Venus. The ministrations of gentle hands may also help to increase energy and resolve discord in the respiratory and circulatory sectors. As palpation pros soothe weary tendons, they also advise clients on how to establish the efficient movement patterns of a well-oiled engine, instead of a well-molassessed stagecoach.
Some people—many therapists among them—believe that children possess a natural harmony between body and mind that diminishes with age. The certified therapists of Elite Massage work to rekindle this connection, teaching their clients how to better listen to their bodies. Among the special modalities they offer, sports massages improve circulation to overworked muscle groups and deep-tissue sessions relieve chronic patterns of stress. Founder Stacey Brennan and her fellow therapists can even travel to offices to soothe entire workforces with their corporate chair massages. These short but effective sessions counter the stress of trying to figure out which emoticons are appropriate when emailing your boss.
