Giving yourself a massage, like throwing yourself a surprise birthday party or asking for your own hand in marriage, is a surefire disappointment. Leave kneading to the knowledgeable with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a 60-minute massage with hot stones and aromatherapy at Meridian Massage (a $70 value).
Kimberly, Meridian Massage's licensed massage therapist, unbundles tightly wound bodies with professional treatments tailored to individual needs. During 60-minute rubdowns, the tissue tenderizer will employ myriad methods, including traditional Chinese-medicine techniques and hot stones, to melt away aches, unbundle knots, and wallop pain. As Kimberly's lithe hands sashay across tense posteriors like a tango dancer's feet sashay across the dentist's office, dim lighting mingles with soothing lavender scents to lull clients into a deep state of relaxation.
Most relaxation massages rely on light- to medium-pressure Swedish strokes to release tension. Massage Addiction's technicians ramp up their relaxation massages by also including acupressure, reflexology, aromatherapy, hot stones, moist heat and hot-foot treatments, and polarity work.
Clients can opt for a more traditional Swedish kneading, as well, or a deep-tissue massage, which, like the relaxation massage, integrates several modalities—including neuromuscular therapy and shiatsu pressure—into one session. Athletes who suffer from injuries caused by playing sports may find relief from a sports or medical massage, and pregnant women who want to ease tension caused by carrying a child or hearing their husband say "we're pregnant" repeatedly might benefit from a prenatal massage.
