It takes about 15 muscles to smile, 50 to frown, and 148 to save a curbside couch from life in a landfill. Soothe sympathetic sinews with today's Groupon: for $39, you get one 60-minute Swedish, deep-tissue, integrative, or craniosacral massage (a $40 value) and a one-year massage membership (a $99 value) at Living Arts Wellness in Fort Collins (a $139 total value). The membership gets you a $20 discount on an unlimited number of 60-minute Swedish, deep-tissue, integrative, or craniosacral massages (normally priced at $60 each) over the course of one year.
Living Arts Wellness founder and licensed massage therapist Celeste Magnuson manipulates dermal dough with a variety of tension-taming techniques in four types of 60-minute massage sessions. During a craniosacral massage, she'll gently caress the client's spine and head, shifting spinal fluids to relieve blocked nerve passages, assuage pain, and release the commercial jingle that's been stuck in your head all day. Alternately, a Swedish massage's long, gliding strokes can lull tense mortals into relaxing states, and a deep-tissue massage reaches into muscular underlayers to clear away aches, chronic pains, and cobwebs from your body's cluttered crawlspaces. Finally, integrative massage combines several modalities, including dermal kneading, somatic therapy, and finger painting, to customize clients' stress-sapping experience.
While today's Groupon includes one massage, clients can also use their one-year membership to undergo an unlimited number of Swedish, deep-tissue, integrative, and craniosacral massages for $40 each. Armed with this discount, go get a kneading during stressful times or in between innings of your Little League baseball game.
