A skilled massage therapist locates hidden pockets of stress with skill and intuition, unlike lions, which locate hidden pockets of zebras with teamwork and two-way radios. Hunt down hidden tension with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a one-hour relaxation massage at Golden Touch Salon (a $75 value).
The massage therapist at Golden Touch Salon whispers unruly muscle miscreants into submission with soothing head-to-toe massages. During the one-hour relaxation massage, the skilled therapist draws from six years of experience to deliver long, gliding strokes and precision pressures along the entire body, kneading down limbs and hovering over extremities to untie tendons along each finger and toe. Patrons suffering from head-based tension feel their scalp knots relent under the tender touches of a full-head massage which, like all the best Andrew Jackson costumes, includes the face. Clients can upgrade to other modalities, such as deep-tissue massage or a salt- or sugar-scrub full-body treatment, or extend the massage to 90-minutes. Professional massages not only help relax muscles, they can also stimulate circulation and help drain the lymphatic system, leaving recipients in a state of serenity not experienced since their last slow-motion tickle fight.
