Muscles, like the tails of sleeping cats or levers labeled “drain ocean,” were never meant to be pulled. Reverse the damage with today's Groupon: for $60, you get two one-hour Swedish massages at Integrated Health Center (a $120 value) in Spokane Valley. The two massages included with this Groupon must be redeemed in separate visits, either by the same person or two different people.
Integrated Health Center's certified clinical massage therapist Judith A. Ransom tends to pained physiques with an assortment of natural healing techniques. During one hour Swedish massages, Judith's skilled hands traipse across backscapes, untying muscle knots and loosening taut tendons. The Swedish modality relies upon multiple stroke styles, including the long, flowing strokes of effleurage, which aims to aid circulation and the lymphatic system's detoxification processes. Gentle kneading stretches cramped muscle fibers and vigorous tapping knocks tissues into a state of bliss. Judith melds each technique into the next to craft an effective stress-busting treatment, while relieving anxiety, depression, and trauma caused by having a quarter painfully extracted from an ear by a street magician.
