Massage clinics remain one of the most relaxing spots to abandon your stresses, second only to beanbag factories and pillow farms. Unload a world of stress with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a customized one-hour massage at Enfield Massage Therapy in Enfield.
Owner and licensed massage therapist Gina Scully choreographs massages to target the client's specific sore spots. Before the one-hour body kneading begins, guests consult with the therapist to devise a strategy for alleviating aches through a choice of massage techniques, which can be combined for complete customization. The Swedish massage applies long, gliding strokes along skeletal armature to relieve taut muscles, and the deep-tissue massage relies on firm pressure to ease chronic pain caused by bench-pressing pianos. Enfield also specializes in Ashiatsu oriental bar therapy, during which the therapist performs soothing tap dances on the back while grabbing onto parallel bars mounted on the ceiling. Any of the provided massages can be sweetened with a complimentary choice of four aroma blends, which creates a relaxing, pleasant-smelling experience, unlike taking the SATs in a horse stable.
Kara Moquin at Enfield Massage Therapy
Kara Moquin’s massage-therapy training helped her perfect the art of the long, gliding strokes of a Swedish massage and the pressured kneading of a deep-tissue session. The nationally certified therapist specializes in sports massage, ashiatsu oriental bar therapy, and myofascial-release techniques, in which muscle aches are released back into the wild.
