According to most massage therapists, muscles should be massaged whenever they become so stiff that they bend any crowbars used to beat them mercilessly. Rather than test for this condition, skip to the cure with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get $70 worth of massage services at Essential Life Therapy in Wallingford.
Founded by two students of the Brenneke School of Massage, Essential Life Therapy pampers its clients with the devoted attention of a cupboard genie. A team of trained practitioners relax tight muscles and clear corpuses of long-standing political tension using a variety of different massage services (all $70; $65 for reiki). Clients can relax under the classic Swedish, push out persistent pains and imbedded javelins with a deep-tissue massage, or try something new with a reflexology or Reiki—a Japanese form that employs gentle touches to heal the body physically, emotionally, and spiritually. All massages begin with a foot-calming bath that doesn’t count as a single minute in your full hour of manual bliss.
When the treatment concludes, Essential Life Therapy reenergizes loosy-goosied clients by offering them a plate piled high with orange slices, chocolate, and water. Visitors are also welcome to apply their Groupon toward extended massage services (up to 90 minutes) or massage series (up to six massages) and pay the difference. Call ahead to set up an appointment at Essential Life Therapy.
