The back is difficult to reach by oneself, making self-administered massages challenging without using a well-oiled leg of mutton as an arm extension. Today's Groupon lets you save mutton legs for eating purposes: for $20, you get to choose any one-hour massage treatment from Heavenly Hands Massage (a $45 value), open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. This Groupon does not include the hot-stone massage.
Select one of the nine massage techniques and let a licensed massage therapist knead away stress and pain. A classic Swedish massage uses long, connective strokes to reduce stress and induce relaxation, and a sports massage applies similar movements with deeper pressure to rehabilitate tense or injured muscles. Heavenly Hands offers exclusive massages that use saintly feet, such as the Ashiatsu Bar therapy and the Fijian massage. Ashiatsu uses freshly cleaned human feet to combine Swedish, myofascial, and sustained-compression techniques. The Fijian also spelunks into the cavernous abyss of your back via foot, a method that achieves greater pressure and healing than hand and arm massages do, leaving your back oozing with melted muscles.
For those who believe they are storing a child within their body, the prenatal massage helps ensure birth will be a relaxing, healthy process. A Thai massage is like yoga without the work, during which a therapist stretches out whining muscles. Whether you’re stiff from a class teaching advanced lock-picking techniques or injured from yelling at too many animals, a massage can reduce stress, relieve pain, and make muscles into clouds that are ripe and ready to rain drops of relaxation and leave puddles of physical wellness. Calling ahead to schedule an appointment is recommended.

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. Hairstylists and aestheticians round out the bodily bolstering with expert styling and nine varieties of facial.
