Like Hawaii, relaxation can be a challenging state to reach. Ensnare elusive serenity with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get a one-hour massage at Motus Massage Therapy (an $80 value).
At Motus Massage Therapy, licensed massaged therapist Lane Alexander kneads muscles with a variety of therapeutic techniques designed to holistically alleviate tension and chronic pain without medication. Select your muscle mollification from a menu of massage styles. Swedish massage lulls limbs into a serene sedation using broad strokes, rolling, and light lotions and oils to boost circulation, and intense deep-tissue massage techniques help oust ache and lost kleenex with sustained, targeted pressure. Motus Massage Therapy also caters to personalized needs with specialized sports massages designed to facilitate mobility and pain relief in athletes; reflexology massages designed to harmonize the body by honing in on precise nerve connections; and pregnancy massages, which target joint pain to accommodate added pregnancy weight, physical strain, and stress over choosing the hippest baby name.
Mr. Alexander consults with all clients before, during, and after each one-hour session to pinpoint areas that need special attention and gauge their opinions on the treatment room’s decor. Though not covered by today’s Groupon, Alexander also specializes in kinesio taping––a rehabilitative practice that involves the applying of tape to specific joints or injury sites to correct muscle function and boost circulation, especially when combined with massage therapy.
