Like a car, the human body needs occasional realignment to ensure that a pleasant journey down the sidewalk doesn't become a careening detour into someone's kitchen. Keep human parts functioning properly with today's Groupon to Flourish in San Anselmo. Choose from the following options:
- For $42, you get a 60-minute deep-tissue or Swedish massage (a $90 value) and a chiropractic exam (a $150 value, $240 total value).

During the Swedish massage at Flourish, massage therapists coax tightness from bodily interiors with long, flowing strokes. Nimble fingers can also delve deeper into tense muscles with the deep-tissue massage, which relies on deep, intensive holds and releases to melt away tension caused by posing nude for a butter statue. Those in need of musculoskeletal care can opt for a chiropractic consultation and evaluation from Dr. Sarah Scharf. Dr. Scharf will examine the spine and nervous system, provide a posture analysis and computerized nerve assessment, discuss concerns, and explain why tails fell out of fashion before a digital thermal muscle scan pinpoints any hidden pockets of stress and discomfort.
Flourish figures that if doctors ask you to fill out questionnaires before they treat you, other people who influence your health should do so, too. That's why the studio's massage therapists—each of whom has hundreds of hours of training—do exactly that, using the information the client provides to determine an appropriate bodywork approach. And their toolbox is packed. Their signature and premium massages encompass Swedish, shiatsu, reflexology, and trigger-point modalities, among others.
Treatments take place in private rooms where soft music plays. They usually occur with the client covered only in fresh, clean sheets, but clients can wear as much clothing or as many pork chops as they need to feel comfortable.
