Weary bodies find solace in the gentle kneads and soothing strokes of the relaxation massage, and the deep-tissue massage applies more deliberate strokes and direct pressure to disentangle muscles knots tied deep within the tissue. Student massage therapists dole out each type of knead as a registered massage therapist supervises and provides pantomimed critiques. Groupon users may apply the value of their Groupon toward a 90-minute hot-stone massage (normally $45), which uses heated stones to loosen tight muscles and help alleviate bodily aches.
