Similar to past tenses, tense backs are related to things that happened a while ago and are incomprehensible to most 5-year-olds. Brush up on the basics of back bliss with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a 60-minute Swedish massage at Montecito Body Works (an $80 value).
Montecito Body Works' licensed massage therapists use the gentle, rhythmic pressure of Swedish massage to help relax tense muscles and ease stiff joints. Serving up a chill pill with long, flowing strokes and bursts of friction, each serenity specialist helps tightly wound muscles relax, ensuring they won’t spasm during attempts to spy on bosses while hanging from overhead light fixtures. In addition to melting away stress, each massage can improve circulation and provide a more restful night of sleep.
Owner Jacque Jackson, a licensed massage therapist recognized by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, has worked her magic on professional athletes, movie producers, and celebrity musicians such as Alicia Keyes. Additionally, she serves as the lead massage instructor for Santa Barbara Business College, teaching students how to knead away stubborn muscle knots and pesky tendon tangles.
