The urge to document human history has led us to spend centuries posing for paintings and photos, making the human body stiff through evolution. Divert this Darwinian direction with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a choice of a 60-minute deep-tissue hot-stone massage or a 90-minute combination massage at Massage By AAA. The clean, relaxing studio is located in The Facial Room near Southpark and Dilworth.
April Ann Arigoni is an experienced muscle manipulator who supplies the magical hands behind Massage By AAA. April expertly coaxes stress from the backs and shoulders of professional athletes (she once worked for the WNBA's Charlotte Sting and ECHL's Charlotte Checkers) and amateur achers. The deep-tissue hot-stone massage is a hybrid technique, combining the strategic pressure and kneads of Swedish and deep-tissue therapies with the warmth and relaxing effects of heated stones. The application of hot stones to the back during massage causes tight muscles to relax, while the connective strokes of more traditional massage techniques help expel toxins and lactic acid from the body. If you opt for a 90-minute combination massage, you will be treated to a comforting stew of Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, movement therapy, and acupressure techniques, with the exact combination of treatments customized to suit your individual needs.
Being 10 years into the new millennium is stressful: technological advances make it nearly impossible to have a moment to oneself, and Y2K canned goods still need sorting. A massage can help relieve decade-old woes so you can direct your focus to more important things, like going to see Sex and the City 2. Call ahead to schedule an appointment, then sit back and relax as you are kneaded into a cozy loaf.
