Without massage therapists, aching backs would have to relieve tension by sneaking into carnivals after hours to repurpose taffy pullers. Enlist a professional with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a 50-minute deep-tissue massage (a $95 value) with a therapeutic heat-pack treatment (a $15 value) at Elizabeth Adam Salon and Day Spa (a $110 total value).
Licensed massage therapists at Elizabeth Adam unravel kinks and soothe away snarls. Unwind amid the spa's hardwood floors and eucalyptus colored walls as pampering professionals revivify wearied frames and frazzled pet rocks during a 50-minute deep-tissue massage. Back unbenders apply intense strokes, warming connective tissues in conjunction with a strategically placed heating pad. Deeper renditions of Swedish massage techniques target chronic muscle tension and knead out knots resulting from days spent biking, sitting at a desk, or solving Rubik's Cubes with shoulder blades. Every massage ends with a cup of soothing or energizing tea.
