Massage is a time-honored method of alleviating stress, as is the ancient art of crafting origami swans out of midterm exams. Ace relaxation with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a fusion massage at Holistic Healing in Valhalla.
The licensed massage therapists at Holistic Healing work to lessen tension and stress in an office space designed to increase positive energy flow. Sixty-minute fusion massages combine the circular strokes of Swedish massage with a deep-tissue rubdown that aims to reverse injuries caused by repetitive motions, poor posture, and joyriding teenage vertebrae. Benefits of the treatment can include improved circulation and joint flexibility.
Kim Sangiuolo doesn’t just practice massage; she curates it. Her signature massage—the centerpiece of Holistic Healing’s service menu—is a soothing and spirit-reviving treatment designed to assuage muscular discomfort while bolstering the body’s spiritual well-being. Beginning with deep-tissue work, Kim incorporates techniques from other massage types, picking and choosing based on the client's specific needs. This form of therapeutic massage has helped her treat clients with injuries such as tendinitis, muscle strains, and headaches. Kim also offers deep-tissue massages, which can be useful when trying to relieve work-related stress or recover from a day of helping a friend move his collection of antique cement bags.
