Julia Childs, America's most lovable foodstress, often demands that her massage therapists replace their fingers' chocolate bars in order to better pummel her marshmallowy exterior. Relax without the stickiness with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a one-hour therapeutic massage (a $100 value) at MetaTouch, located in Culver City near Sony Pictures Studios.
The therapists at MetaTouch have been trained in rehabilitated medical and oriental medicine under the exacting eye of owner Holden Zalma, who has more than 16 years of experience in massage therapy and extensive training in myofascial release and Oriental medicine. Place your aching back, throbbing knees, or migrained skull in the staff's capable hands for a massage with a therapeutic slant. Treatment begins with a 10-minute assessment to determine what areas need targeting and what combination of techniques will work best to alleviate pains. Then, the skilled massage therapist will knead your body back into a high-performance machine capable of easily tearing apart old banana peels or sitting for long periods of time.
This Groupon also grants you access to another massage for half off ($50 for a $100 value) if you book the second massage the day of your treatment. Call ahead to schedule your appointment at least 24 hours in advance.
Yelpers give MetaTouch a four-star average:
- Metatouch isn't a spa, but a therapeutic massage and bodywork place...and my treatments there have really helped relieve my lower back pain and UNDERSTAND why it was happening in the first place! – Neha P.
- The office was very pleasant and clean and the staff quite friendly. My therapist had an excellent knowledge of body and found my particular tight spots right away. – Mike D.
MetaTouch Therapeutic Massage and Wellness Center
Holden Zalma knows the toll that exertion can take on muscles. Before he received his massage license, he helped to train USC's football, basketball, and swimming teams while he studied to be a physical therapist. After graduation, Holden founded MetaTouch Therapeutic Massage and Wellness Center, where he shares his burgeoning 20 years of massage-therapy experience with others. His philosophy is simple: alleviate pain and treat injuries by scouting out symptoms, hunting down their root causes, and treating the body as a whole by ignoring its unsightly seams. He and his staff of trained practitioners accomplish this task by blending techniques—such as massage, stretching, exercise, and acupuncture—to relieve pain, improve performance, and reduce the risk of future injuries.
