Licensed massage therapist Heidi Sanders of Gift of Health Massage divides her hands’ handiwork between services that focus mainly on relaxation and ones with the ambition to demolish chronic aches and pains. Her Swedish massages merge soothing oils and lotions with rolling strokes, kneading motions, and energizing percussion techniques to spark circulation and send stress fleeing. During therapeutic deep-tissue sessions, more aggressive techniques allay stress stemming from poor posture or nagging injuries. As the experience can be intense, Sanders encourages deep-tissue clients to communicate their pressure preferences and areas of discomfort during the session, and, as with a friendly handshake from a thumb-wrestling champion, clients should expect some soreness afterward.
Though Gift of Health Massage sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
