Sweden’s massage innovations have led directly to the country’s success in other fields, as the hypnotic powers of a deep-tissue rub induce men to dream up hotels made entirely of ice and furniture made entirely of meatballs. Slip into a relaxed state of ingenuity with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a one-hour deep-tissue massage at Lucid Dream Massage, located in Jenkins Chiropractic and Wellness Center (a $60 value).
A one-hour tension-thawing session subjects muscles maligned by stress to the powerful palms of a licensed therapist with a thorough knowledge of deep-tissue massage. Deep strokes infiltrate the skin’s surface and fearlessly enter the layered inferno of inflamed muscles near the body’s core, kneading away anxieties and paving circulatory highways. Firm pressure relaxes muscles and relieves tensions built up from slouching in office chairs or crouching in air ducts to escape hawk-eyed bosses. Therapist Rebecca Lutheran tailors her bodywork to the individual needs and wishes of each client, covering all the body’s stress points with a range of intensities fluctuating between smooth, gliding motions and full-court pressure. A flexible appointment schedule allows sore-backed patrons to seek immediate relief in either day or nighttime hours.
The multifarious physical and emotional benefits of massage can include pain relief from injuries and muscle spasms, improved flexibility, and a stronger immune system. This intensive rubdown may leave muscles feeling somewhat tender for a few days, making them prone to sporadic tears of joy or attempts to cuddle with complete strangers.
