Like house parties, massages give people an excuse to forget about everyday stresses and fall asleep on someone else's table. Attend a fettle-ready fiesta with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a one-hour massage at Essential Touch Body Works in Point Pleasant (a $65 value).
Certified massage therapist Lori Amendolara of Essential Touch Body Works tames both physical and mental stress with hands-on healing. After filling out intake forms and chatting briefly about the goals of the session and of the Congress of Vienna, tense torsos undress to their comfort level and lie down. Over the course of 60 minutes, Lori employs a custom massage regimen that includes unscented, hypoallergenic oils to relax muscles, increase circulation, and release wrongfully imprisoned endorphins and serotonins. Tranquil sounds such as ocean waves fill the peaceful therapy room, and when the treatment is complete, clients refuel and awaken with a bottle of water and a small snack.
