Massage is considered the most effective form of sports therapy, narrowly beating out acupuncture, orange-juice IVs, and hot chicken-soup baths. Give your tension-laden muscles the best with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get two 90-minute therapeutic massages at HandWorks Massage LLC in East Lansing (up to a $160 value).
HandWorks’ owner and certified massage therapist Scott Stearns administers purposeful bodywork customized to help assuage physical and emotional stress or advance injury recovery. His 90-minute massages may incorporate multiple modalities to coax knotted muscles and bunched connective tissues into being more flexible and resuming their at-ease positions. During the treatment, interactive discussion gives clients insight into Scott’s holistic techniques and efforts to ease the body-wide taxation from activities such as sports training, professional labor, and giving a piggyback ride to an adorable 5-year-old SUV. Sessions forgo the scented candles and heavy oil bastings of traditional spas in favor of an athletically inspired space, with massagee-chosen tunes, sparing applications of organic jojoba oil, and a table topped with an ergonomic bodyCushion for cloud-like comfort.
Though HandWorks Massage LLC sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
