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 $35, you get a 60-minute deep-tissue massage at GT Massage & Skin Care in Wheaton (a $70 value).
GT Massage & Skin Care pampers patrons with an arsenal of rejuvenating treatments for the body, face, and mind. During the one-hour deep-tissue massage, a skilled therapist will seek out long-felt tensions, challenge the offending parts to a duel, and then pick apart the enemy using adroit hand-to-muscle techniques and premium lotions and potions. Bodies may feel some muscle soreness afterward, but the slight pain—like a framed mug shot positioned near sunlight—can fade away along with the memories of previous stresses. Clients should arrive 10 minutes prior to their appointments to check in.

GT Massage & Skin Care
After receiving her aesthetics and massage-therapy licenses, Gloria Bach assembled a crack team of professionals and enlisted the help of Pevonia Botanica and DermaQuest skincare products to devise the well-rounded service arsenal at GT Massage & Skin Care. The in-house massage therapist, whose quest to bolster his prowess brought him to study in destinations as diverse as India and Texas, demonstrates his bodily know-how by easing sore muscles prone to overworking themselves during action-movie marathons. Meanwhile, aestheticians tackle rosacea, acne, and signs of aging with 18 assorted facials, many of which harness microdermabrasion or Purelight LED technology to rescue the face from impurities and dead skin cells.
