Like Boy Scouts and mathematically insecure skippers, massage therapists need to work out all the knots before receiving a badge of approval. Reward muscular merit with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a one-hour massage at Lordex Spine Institute in League City (a $69.95 value).
Lordex Spine Institute's licensed massage therapists invoke whole body wellness from the outside in. With training in both Swedish and deep-tissue massage, Lordex's therapists knead away stressors with an eye toward personalized muscle loosening during their one-hour sessions. A slower modality, a deep-tissue massage provides intense, centralized relief for persistent twinges, unrelentingly tautness, or injuries sustained while practicing for jai alai tryouts. Swedish massage uses light or medium pressure to loosen knots and alleviate stress. The smooth, gliding strokes ease muscle tension and promote relaxation, easing overworked muscles and melting tension into a conveniently positioned bucket. An effective treatment for stress reduction and the improvement of blood circulation, massage also relieves anxiety, depression, and trauma resulting from having a quarter painfully extracted from your ear by a street magician.
Lordex Spine Institute
Drawing on an education that includes a doctorate from Texas Chiropractic College and a bachelor's degree in public health and human biology, Dr. Brandt L. Spies of Lordex Spine Institute treats bodies entangled by such painful conditions as herniated disks, headaches, and spinal arthritis. The doctor upgrades spinal hardware with chiropractic adjustments, and the center's squadron of licensed massage therapists tinkers on soft tissue with modalities that include Swedish, sports, and deep tissue. The institute also boasts the Lordex Lumbar Spinal Decompression System, a padded table with a knee bolster that supports prostrate patrons. During the 30-minute sessions that make use of this system, a gap in the table slowly widens, stretching spines to alleviate lower back pain and add flexibility to overstarched overalls.
