Inaccessible to the hands, back musculature often falls prey to freeloading "kick me" signs and hitchhiking parrots. Liberate a beleaguered back with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a 90-minute deep-tissue or hot-stone massage at Massage 2B Fit in Westlake Village (up to a $120 value).
Having freshly debuted in February 2011, Massage 2B Fit brings the able hands of its staff to the padded table, tending to knotted muscles and stressed connective tissues with holistic practices. A licensed massage therapist imparts 90 minutes of kneaded bliss during the deep-tissue massage (a $95 value), which strategically infiltrates on-guard layers of skeletal armor and transforms them into confidently relaxed protective sheaths. The 90-minute hot-stone massage (a $120 value) achieves similar musculoskeletal tranquility by aligning furrowed bone brows with water-warmed rocks, whose pervasive heat and Southern charm melt away tension, help improve blood flow, and pave the way for the thorough manual unfurling that follows.
