Massage safely relieves stress and prevents you from resorting to the ancient healing tradition of punching a pillow full of worry stones. Knock out pain the comfortable way with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a 60-minute Earth Elements spa massage at Balance Health Center (a $170 value).
The therapists at Balance Health Center combine the healing power of touch with the calming scents of sage and cedar wood in the relaxing Earth massage. The full-body treatment delves deep into the muscles for one hour—the same amount of time it took them to tense up while moving a brick collection—to drive out stress, tension, and toxins with careful strokes. Anxiously racing thoughts slow to a torpid pace and the mind may drift to a serene and peaceful place. The final 15 minutes of the treatment culminate in a grounding foot massage that rewards sore soles for their continuous service of walking, standing, and lindy hopping.
Balance Health Center
Balance Health Center takes a holistic approach to wellness by offering chemical-free body treatments and classes that promote balance within the mind and body. The center's nontraditional healing approaches include acupuncture, Ayurveda, and traditional Chinese medicine, treatments that all aim to heal the body without unnatural substances.
Spa services encompass waxing and seven-step facials, and bodies can acquire a bronze glow with the center's version of sunless tanning that relies on an organic, citrus-scented solution rather than the sun's hand-me-down rays. Relaxation's role in personal balance asserts itself in assorted scalp massages, hot-stone therapy, and aromatherapy as well as in spa massages that integrate essential oils. Helping guests to bring the center's philosophies home, Balance Health Center hosts classes and workshops on herbology, stretching, and yoga.
