The feet are the only parts of the body that know how to masterfully mash grapes and bring the toes to soccer practice on time. Trust them to tromp away your woes with today's deal: $30 for an hour-long Fijian-style barefoot massage (a $60 value) from callous-free therapists at Heeling Sole. The muscle-melting foot knead takes place at the clean and comfortable Integrative Healing Institute in Forest Oak.
Smuggled out from the legendarily relaxed island of Kadavu in a hollowed-out coconut, a Fijian-style foot massage is a pain-busting, deep-tissue knead. You'll lie on a soft mat on the floor while the therapist's expert foot (her left foot) conducts a tactile symphony of powerful, precise strokes that rush through your body and melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable battery acid. Leg muscles are far more powerful than their compatriots in the arms and back, and skilled feet can easily tread out knots and aches.

A lone Citysearcher gives Heeling Sole a perfect five stars:
- [Therapist Jeni Spring] worked very specifically where I was tight, and gave me the deepest full body massage I've had. She really knows what she's doing...It's been 1 week since that massage and I still feel fabulous, I wasn't sore the day after, and my knots haven't bothered me at all since! – lilystarla
