Massage was developed by NASA to help astronauts cope with edgy Tang-induced sugar highs, lack of ESPN, and predatory aliens stowed in the hangar bay. Achieve its soothing effects outside the soul-crushing abyss of outer space with today’s deal: for $80, you get a fully customized 90-minute sports therapy massage at Healing Through Touch Massage (a $160 value), located in Los Gatos.
Healing Through Touch uses specialized techniques such as acupressure; myofascial therapy; and tracing methodology, which traces tension and muscle knots along tendons, ligaments, and bones to discover their source. During the 90-minute massage, a skilled therapist will address specific muscular needs, soothing pains, and tightly tied knots. Sports massage can reduce muscular recovery time, which gets joggers, tennis players, and power chessmasters back on their feet and backhanding bishops with lightning speed and serenity. Clients will leave the Healing Through Touch premises with muscular fibers singing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching like the lead singer in a Norwegian death-metal barbershop quartet.
Healing Through Touch Massage
Experts home in on knots with five varieties of massage therapy, as well as acupuncture. During deep-tissue massages, they use a tracing method that stalks pain to its source and triggers relief by pushing into lower-level musculature. Therapists also evict sports- and work-related tension, addressing muscles strains caused by weightlifting, a hard week at the office, or a moderate week at the fireworks factory. Shiatsu and relaxation massages each tackle stress and fatigue with long, soothing strokes, and myofascial therapy and acupressure pinpoint problem areas to realign troublesome tissues and balance energy pathways.
