Africa’s Atlas mountains are named after the hardened knots that formed in that primordial titan’s back after years of holding up the heavens and coping with the stresses of full-scale cartography. Relieve your burdens with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a one-hour Swedish or deep-tissue massage at Massage Therapy Studios (a $70 value).
A licensed team of massage therapists restores starchy muscles to supple states of pliability with full-body treatments that intermingle gentle strokes with intense, deep-tissue pressure. A slow and rhythmic Swedish massage uses the secrets of Scandinavia to stimulate oxygen flow, kneading away meaty balls of stress and assembling muscular furniture that promotes strong posture. Palms travel along spinal highways, exerting smooth caresses that relieve tension from superficial muscle layers to promote profound relaxation.
In deliciously intense deep-tissue sessions, therapists dig tunnels deep into the back’s subterranean layers to suffocate sun-fearing stress goblins with their firm hands. Because this therapeutic massage involves moments of powerful compression, patrons should be prepared to experience some soreness the following day. The multifarious benefits—which far outweigh this mild discomfort—include increased body awareness, healthier circulation, and first-place finishes in Finnish wife-carrying tournaments.
Massage Therapy Studios
Massage Therapy Studios’ talented massage therapists conciliate aggravated musculature with time-tested, stress-fighting massage techniques. During a Swedish massage, slow, rhythmic strokes tap dance their way across backs, stimulating full-body relaxation while improving circulation and oxygen flow. Visitors may also opt for more focused neuromuscular or deep-tissue massage, which aims to relieve chronic muscle tension incurred while working out or shot-putting bowling balls.
