Like fine marble statues, human bodies must be touched up on a regular basis lest their surfaces dull, their north sides moss, and their forearms fall off. Lavish your life vehicle with today's Groupon: for $77, you get a one-hour aromatherapy massage (a $65 value) and a one-hour diamond microdermabrasion (a $90 value) at Heavenly Hands Massage on East Parleys Way (a $155 total value).
The trained massage therapists and aestheticians at Heavenly Hands tenderize tendons with a variety of soothing treatments designed to relieve stress, decrease chronic pain, and relax recipients. The aromatherapy session soaks serenity seekers in a cloud of calming scents as muscles are unknotted with one of seven massage style choices, excluding the Thai, Ashiatsu, and hot stone modalities.
Sports massages increase mobility to help rehabilitate aching athletes, and trigger-point therapy targets pressure points to relieve pain in a specific area. During the Fijian massage, therapists use their feet to provide extremely deep pressure normally reserved for sandy beaches and henchmen's faces in a Jean-Claude Van Damme movie. After torso tempering, refurbish creased cranium drapes with a diamond microdermabrasion, a one-hour exfoliation that gently pares away dead skin cells to reveal a smoother, more youthful surface underneath.
Heavenly Hands Massage & Spa
Heavenly Hands Massage & Spa’s strong-thumbed therapists dissipate their clients' tension with the same massage techniques they have used to unwind professional athletes from the Utah Grizzlies, Blaze, and Bees. With this veteran experience, the staff focuses on alleviating chronic pain or injury-related discomfort through therapeutic methods that range from the standard modalities of Swedish and deep-tissue massage to the Eastern practices of Thai massage and ashiatsu. Ashiatsu—a centuries-old method born out of discomfort from pillows not being invented—evicts deep-seated tension by having massage therapists steady themselves on a bar anchored to the ceiling and apply pressure with targeted footsteps. To iron out energy kinks, a team of yoga instructors orchestrates classes that stretch and strengthen muscles while centering the mind. Hairstylists and aestheticians round out the bodily bolstering with expert styling and nine varieties of facial.
