While a lengthy massage is generally held to be the most effective way to tame wild charley horses, it has proven a disastrous method for disarming time bombs. Diffuse the tension with today's Groupon to Melrose Muscle Therapy in Melrose Park. Choose between the following options:
• For $30, you get a 30-minute hot bamboo massage (a $60 value).
• For $49, you get a 60-minute hot bamboo massage (a $100 value).
Melrose Muscle Therapy kneads recalcitrant knots and pummels stress with relaxing spa services performed by licensed professionals. During the hot bamboo massage, a soothing sensei will gently rub, massage, roll, and tap burdened bodies with heated bamboo sticks of various sizes, reducing muscle soreness in a process similar to a deep tissue massage or a panda job interview. Both massages provide clients with a veritable comfort buffet, allowing the recipient to choose which two areas they would like to have treated, including the neck, back, arms, and legs.
Melrose Muscle Therapy's two massage gurus, Luisa and Lisamarie, are both graduates of the Cortiva Institute Chicago School of Massage Therapy, and Lisamarie acts as massage therapist and howling coach to the Chicago Wolves hockey team.
