Like house parties, massages give people an excuse to forget about everyday stresses and fall asleep on someone else’s table. Attend a fettle-ready fiesta with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get a one-hour massage at Kiva Healing Arts, which operates out of Snow Blossom Acupuncture (an $80 value).
Kiva Healing Arts’ licensed massage therapist, Tish Wiley, goes head-to-head against a wide range of ailments by rendering custom massages that range from therapeutic and holistic modalities to relaxing treatments. Tish brings to the fore experience cultivated during her seven-year career to customize each session with a range of modalities such as trigger-point therapy. Clients can wipe away oodles of stress during Swedish massages, ideal after long days at work or days building forts in a weight room. Those beset by pain may experience relief by undergoing deep-tissue or myofascial-release treatments, both of which help loosen muscles and restore range of motion. Tish works with each patient to find the most efficacious set of strokes, determining whether the individual suffers from general musculoskeletal pain or it is best to turn to specialty treatments such as prenatal massages—meant for achy mothers-to-be—and post-tax-day calculator massages.
