Managing stress can be like milking an electric eel: even when you succeed, it's still hard work. Experts agree it's better to enlist a second, more experienced set of hands to untangle your wriggly tension. For $39, new clients get a 60-minute, stress-blasting neuromuscular massage from the uncompromising tranquility-party partisans at Massage Revolution, a $79 value. If you aren't a puddle at the end of the session, your next massage is free.
Massage Revolution keeps its 15 licensed massage therapists ready to jump up at the sound of a bell and slide down a fireman's pole to your side, raring to transform your rigid, aching body into a blob of joyous silly putty. Instead of temporarily relieving its symptoms, neuromuscular massage eliminates pain at its source and bequeaths long-lasting muscle relaxation. In a soothingly lit room, your therapist will seek out the pressure points where stress, stiffness, and suffering coil and hide like a rattlesnake in a freezer. Using precise, measured pressure and a stoic disposition, they'll loosen your body and leave a pleasant, minty sensation in your mind. A neuromuscular massage can not only banish pain, but restore proper posture and physical function, improve vascular health, and even induce a willingness to reach across the aisle for groceries.

In 2008, Los Angeles CityVoter’s Hot List ranked Massage Revolution one of the city’s best places for massage therapy. Owners Michael and Melissa Greenspan specialize in neuromuscular-massage treatments, which pinpoint the location of pain and root it out through specific techniques. Most often, they discover that poor circulation, nerve compression, or metal-joint oxidization is the source of pain. From here, they manipulate key trigger points within the muscles. The owners work alongside a group of licensed massage therapists who also perform neuromuscular massage, as well as traditional massage modalities such as Swedish, shiatsu, deep tissue, reflexology, and reiki.
