Muscle fibers, like doorknobs, would get bored and seize up were it not for an influx of new and exciting pairs of hands. Keep frames free and clear with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a one-hour Thai fusion massage at LA Bliss Day Spa in Valley Village (a $59 value).
The experienced practitioners at LA Bliss Day Spa help clients escape the environs of their stress-filled shells with an array of beatific body treatments. During a Thai fusion massage, skilled hands remix Swedish slow strokes, Thai passive stretching, and Ravi Shankar deep cuts into a one-hour mashup of muscle-melting styles. Therapists will use hands, fingers, and nougat-soft knuckles to apply gentle pressure along energy lines and usher limbs through a series of yoga-like stretches. The reenergizing treatment can help dissolve everyday stress and quell dissent in muscles previously planning protest marches along your sternum.
LA Bliss Spa
LA Bliss Spa's staff soothe tired skin and frayed nerves by providing a friendly environment where clients can let go of every concern except their need for pampering. Skilled aestheticians perfect skin with a menu of facials that includes custom exfoliation and pore-cleaning variations. Facials use products that diminish signs of aging such as lines and pigmentation in shades not in compliance with the official human color wheel. To purge the body of stress, the spa offers a number of different massage styles, as well as mud wraps and detoxifying body scrubs that are designed to provide unique results. Massage therapists unfurl tension and nourish frames with soothing oils while skin care professionals at the spa use Dermalogica products. Therapists also utilize the healing properties of heated stones to relieve muscle discomfort and release endorphins back into the wild.
