The burden of aches and pains makes it impossible for humans to run as fast as cheetahs, which is why the human diet is virtually devoid of gazelle meat. Keep fast food from getting away with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a one-hour massage (a $70 value) and a choice of a hot-stone, aromatherapy, or paraffin treatment (a $15 value) at Massage Works in Creve Coeur (an $85 total value).
The licensed massage therapists at Massage Works knead weary bone-and-muscle storage devices into a state of comfort through nine modalities. Clients clamoring for a geology-based spa treatment can indulge backs with a one-hour hot-stone massage, centered around the application of basaltic river rocks, which are warmed to the appropriate temperature in the craw of a dragon. The stones, like slideshows of baby photos accompanied by the smooth tunes of Yo-Yo Ma, assist in soothing deep muscle tissue. The sports massage focuses on preventing injuries, while the neuromuscular treatment incorporates soft-tissue strokes designed to pacify the central nervous system. Other relaxation-inducing services include aromatherapy, paraffin, reflexology, myofascial release, lymphatic drainage, and reiki. During the massage clients can indulge in optional hot stone or aromatherapy, or choose to enjoy a post-massage hand-paraffin treatment and make themselves an omelet on their own portable stovetop.
Each massage therapist at Massage Works averages more than seven years of experience, which they draw upon to assuage muscles, knead away tension, and lower blood pressure. Massage styles range from hot-stone massage, which uses warm basaltic river rocks to soothe aching joins and induce relaxation, to sports massage, which helps athletes recover from injuries, hard workouts, and long periods spent sitting perfectly still on cereal boxes. Other wellness services include paraffin hand treatments and myofascial release, each aimed at helping bodies feel healthy, happy, and free of stress.
