The human body, like a glorious ocean liner, must sometimes evict troublesome stowaways hiding out in the boiler room and stealing dessert. Today's Groupon throws ornery orthopedic offenders overboard: for $29, you get to choose one of seven one-hour massages at Healing Touch Charlotte, conveniently located between the Bland and Carson train stations (a $59 value). You can buy two Groupons to apply toward two sessions.
Healing Touch Charlotte offers seven modalities of massage therapy for Charlotte's rotten muscles and blown tissues. A Swedish massage relieves tension and stress throughout the body like the summer winds sweeping through Stora Sjöfallet National Park, while a deep-tissue massage attacks adhesions within muscles, tendons, and ligaments. The medical massage is a rehabilitative service tending to areas affected by accident or injury, while neuromuscular massage remedies posture problems and structural dissymmetry. Prenatal massage alleviates aches within expectant mothers, reflexology kneads at nexuses 'neath the knees with its focus on feet and concentration on calves, and myofascial release uses muscle contractions and light tissue stimulation to clear up tension.
David Turner, a licensed bodywork and massage therapist, founded Healing Touch Charlotte in 1999. In the ensuing decade, his fingers have awoken numerous muscles and tissues from painful hibernation, like little alarm clocks dropped in lactic-acid-filled bear caves.
