In addition to experiencing the humiliation of being buried by dogs and dug up by science teachers, skeletons are ornery because they lack the musculature necessary to get massaged. Avoid taking your skin for granted with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a 30-minute custom massage at Knead to Unwind (a $50 value). Clients can opt to receive a deep tissue and trigger-point massage, relaxation massage, or a combination of techniques.
The skilled staffers at Knead to Unwind, all registered massage therapists and members of the Massage Therapy Association of Manitoba, de-knot muscles with therapeutic massages designed to meet each body’s needs. During the deep tissue massage, embedded muscles and connective tissue find solace in a therapist's touch while bunched muscles in necks, lower backs, and shoulders melt like peanut-butter in a Reese's cup set aflame. A classic bodywork technique performed during deep tissue massage, trigger-point therapy coaxes pain from the body through the application of pressure. The smooth, slow movements and light touch of a relaxation massage may prompt slumber as the massage encourages improved circulation, stimulates the lymphatic system, and diminishes the urge to prank-call neighbours. Each therapist uses natural oils to bathe skin in moisture. and aromatherapy to unite nose and body in a nourishing tango.
