People who treat their bodies well tend to be treated well by their bodies, with satisfied elbows often surprising their owners with Riverdance tickets. Reap the benefits of bodily care with today's Groupon: for $50, you get either one 50-minute Swedish massage or one sports and injury massage, plus one month of unlimited spinning, yoga, and Pilates classes, at Just Breathe, A Wellness Sanctuary (a $179 total value). In 2009, the downtown house of health was named one of the Valley’s best mom and pop local businesses by Phoenix magazine.
During the 50-minute massage at Just Breathe, the hands of an expert therapist will customize techniques to conduct internal and external harmony. The Swedish massage uses long, directional strokes and magic beans to flush out toxins, improve blood flow, and restore the body's balance. To alleviate muscle and tendon stress resulting from a second career moonlighting as a racehorse, go for the sports and injury massage, which delivers oxygen to cells, enhancing tissue elasticity, endurance, and recovery time.
You'll also receive one month of unlimited fitness classes. Focus a month's worth of energy on the specific movements of yoga, Pilates, or spinning, or mix and match disciplines for a cornucopia of fitness. Stretch out stresses in a yoga flow class, a meditative mash-up of connective movements and conscious breathing, or evict stowaway calories in a session of cardio-crazy spinning. Just Breathe also offers introductory sweat sessions for greenhorns of spinning or yoga. Classes are offered Monday through Saturday, but not on Sunday, when the studio is closed for company-wide potato-sack races. Check out the complete class schedule here.
Locally created artwork adorns the walls at this eco-friendly hub for good health, so you might see a masterpiece by someone you know and become inspired to become your own masterpiece. The energy-efficient studio is all green-built, so you’ll be trimming your carbon footprint along with your stress and waistline.
Just Breathe was featured in Phoenix magazine as a local pick:
- Just Breathe is first and foremost a place to unwind with a soothing massage or facial, or get reenergized with a spin class, yoga session or tai chi lesson. When you step into this little healing sanctuary, which is adorned with local art and constructed with eco-friendly materials, you’ll be greeted and put at ease immediately by its friendly mascot – a lovable chocolate Labrador named Molly. – Phoenix
