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 $40, you get a 60-minute deep-tissue or Swedish massage (an $80 value) at Green Hut Spa in Alpharetta.
True to its name, Green Hut Spa carves out an exotic, Balinese oasis where relaxation and renewal govern indulgent spa rituals. Using firm but gentle pressure, Green Hut's Swedish massage helps to usher in oxygen reinforcements to a gasping circulatory system, dismissing insurgent toxins and misplaced tater tots from battle-weary fascia. The relaxing hour of massage improves flexibility, invigorates epidermises, and eases nerves jangled from too many high-stakes games of Battleship.
Green Hut's muscle-manicurists also offer 60-minute deep-tissue treatments to cater to chronic muscle tension and stubborn knots. With the help of warm-heat therapy, massage therapists apply deep pressure and friction directly to submerged tissues, easing the pain of tight, sore, emotionally ambivalent, and stiff muscles. Bodies and backs can luxuriate in Green Hut's lush, ambient environment, augmented by Balinese flute music, sustainable bamboo flooring, and toe-tickling Bali tigers.
