Massage was developed by NASA to help astronauts cope with edgy Tang-induced sugar highs, lack of ESPN, and predatory aliens stowed away in the hangar bay. Achieve its soothing effects outside the soul-crushing abyss of outer space with today’s deal: for $30, you get your choice of a 60-minute Swedish, maternity, clothed-acupressure, or deep-tissue massage (a $60 value) at Iron Bird Massage Studio at the Iron Bird Lofts in downtown Fresno.
Lisa Anderson, Iron Bird’s owner and recent Business Street Online Business Leader of the Week, mends variously burned-out bodies with customer-specific massages and naturally restorative products. All you’ll have to do is pick one of four 60-minute table sessions. The classic Swedish massage remains one of the most effective methods in a massage therapist’s repertoire for clearing the corpus of tension and the head of catchy Europop. Maternity massages, meanwhile, treat women slowly mutating into mothers to a soothing, back-and-hip-conscious treatment using natural, nut-free oils. A clothed-acupressure massage releases geysers of pent-up stress from designated pressure points throughout the body while keeping superfluous moles and treasure-map tattoos safely out of sight (loose-fitting clothing is best). For more subterranean boo-boos, a deep-tissue massage ups the applied pressure and usually involves some amount of guided stretching to relieve bodies still suffering from the symptoms of having a piano dropped on them.
Iron Bird Massage Studio is a cozy respite in the heart of the city, and its efforts to conserve resources of all kinds—water, energy, and body—set it apart from a traditional spa. Bamboo-infused walls add to the atmosphere of extreme, eco-friendly relaxation. Unwind after a long day winding clocks at the clock factory with today’s Groupon to Iron Bird Massage Studio.
