It takes about 15 muscles to smile, 50 to frown, and 148 to save a curbside couch from life in a landfill. Soothe sympathetic sinews with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a one-hour massage of your choice at Massage by Marianne, located at Ervin Chiropractic in West Des Moines (a $60 value).
Licensed massage therapist Marianne Crandall draws upon her experience in spas, massage clinics, and doctor's offices to exile muscular tension with four massage modalities. Marianne first consults with patrons on their backs' problem areas to better isolate and assuage their individual issues. Hands smooth over sore and stiff surface tissues in the therapeutic massage and soothe expectant mothers' strains by wrapping torsos in lullaby sheet music during the prenatal massage. Deep-tissue or myofascial-release sessions duel with clients' deep-seated aches, zeroing in on afflicted zones with more intense pressure to increase range of motion and relieve chronic pain. After their treatment, physiques can boast reduced pain, diminished stress, and the ability to limbo under office doors.
