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 Groupon: for $15, you get a 30-minute massage at Holiday Spa Massage, located on East Main Street (a $30 value).
A state-certified staff of muscle-manipulators alleviates bodily aches with a wide range of soothing massage techniques, which include Swedish, deep tissue, acupressure, and hot-stone therapy. When guests select their choice of body massage, a steady-handed therapist applies a heavenly 30-minute kneading to relax tension, stimulate the lymphatic system, and improve circulation—unlike a traffic jam of weinermobiles. Visitors receive their treatments in one of four private massage rooms or a couples room with two adjacent beds, where an aural cascade of raindrops falling on home-cooked meals creates a tranquil, welcoming environment.
