Forgo the reckless pastimes of stress relief with today's Groupon: for $30, you get either a 60-minute Swedish massage or hot-stone massage at Legacy Pilates, Yoga and More (up to a $75 value).
Legacy Pilates, Yoga and More’s skilled staff of massage therapists cajoles tension out of taut tendons and ushers in relief with the Swedish massage (a $75 value) or the hot-stone massage (a $65 value), tailoring these chirapsias to the individual needs of each customer. During the Swedish massage, a massage guru slides, kneads, and rhythmically taps hands across your body's surface, working to banish joint stiffness, stress, and anxiety-ridden tycoons illegally building their empire in your musculature. Alternately, the hot-stone massage employs warm, smooth rocks soused in essential oils to penetrate tension points and serve querulous sinews a tepefied 1,000-milligram chill pill. In addition to exorcising tenseness, massages may help to enhance flexibility, increase range of motion, decrease pain, and restore the mind and spirit.
