Like caffeine and spontaneously twitching eyebrows, muscle tension can lead to splitting headaches. Care for your cranium with today’s Groupon: for $35, new clients get a one-hour massage or foot-reflexology session at Massage Associates of Atlanta, LLC in Tucker (a $70 value).
Accented by warm lights and soothing music, Massage Associates of Atlanta, LLC relaxes minds and muscles with three types of massage and therapeutic foot-reflexology sessions. Each client partners with a licensed massage therapist to customize the session, choosing Swedish, deep-tissue, or neuromuscular techniques to unwind knots and alarm clocks lodged between the shoulder blades. Tension and pain are relieved during reflexology and neuromuscular treatments, in which the therapist applies pressure to specific areas to produce sensations in other parts of the body. Deep-tissue sessions release tension, and the long, flowing strokes and focused kneading of the Swedish modality inspire envy in Olympic swimmers and bakers easily distracted by shiny cake pans.
Helmed by Cindy Farrar—a licensed massage therapist trained in reflexology, reiki, lomilomi, and more—Massage Associates of Atlanta, LLC integrates a variety of healing modalities to banish clients’ stress. With availability on weekday evenings and Saturdays, the wellness center also aids in preventing anxieties related to believing in or reading calendars.
