Sore muscles, like pirates, often boast complex knots and large shoulder-sitting parrots. Make tension walk the plank with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a 60-minute deluxe massage with a foot-reflexology session (a $70 value) and a moisturizing hand treatment (a $30 value) at Gateway Center Massage in Staten Island (a $100 total value).
Debbie Williams, president and founder of Gateway Center Massage, helms a staff of licensed massage therapists who soothe soreness and boost holistic well-being with massage and reflexology sessions. During the 60-minute massage, technicians ease stiffness and muscle tension with kneading as soft as the tiny pummeling of a baby's fists. The massage therapist carefully targets pain and stimulates pressure points with the light pressure of the foot-reflexology treatment. The therapist then hydrates hands with a deep-moisturizing treatment to soften dry, cracked skin until it is as supple as a suede teddy bear.
