Inaccessible to the hands, back musculature often falls prey to freeloading Kick Me signs and hitchhiking parrots. Liberate a beleaguered back with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a 50-minute Swedish aromatherapy massage at Go Madd 4 Massage in St. Augustine (a $65 value).
Go Madd 4 Massage owner Diana kneads away lingering strains and stressors with her Swedish aromatherapy massage’s artful blend of scents and soothing oils. During each 50-minute treatment, clients slip onto a gently heated table, and Diana tenderizes growling muscles with gentle strokes aided by fragrant, cooling oils. Since the nose provides direct passage to the brain, Diana sends her scents inward to relax tension, stimulate healing, and liberate stuck show tunes. Massage recipients shed the day's worries amid a restful ambiance, with treatments lit by flickering candlelight and augmented by the strains of seasoned tunesmiths. Although sessions are by appointment only, Diana is available seven days a week for same-day, next-day, or Arbor Day appointments.
Go Madd 4 Massage
A butter-yellow canine named Praline formerly comforted nursing-home residents at pet-therapy sessions. Now, she serves as the tail-wagging mascot of Go Madd 4 Massage. Owner and massage therapist Diana Beranek takes Praline on strolls that cover up to 15 miles each week, and also practices pet massage therapy on the pooch's muscles. However, the tender care that Diana lavishes on Praline isn't reserved only for her pet; she also relieves physical stress and pain for human clients, drawing on 15 years of massage experience and a knowledge of deep-tissue, Swedish, and hot-stone massage techniques. Clients recline on a heated table surrounded by candles as soft music or recordings of Top-40 whale songs lull minds to peace. Heated lotion keeps flesh warm, and essential oils put nostrils at ease. A large massage room hosts twosomes with tense backs or a shared muscular knot.
