Your body is a temple, and it sometimes needs a good dusting of the ductwork to make especially devout microbes take their leave. Tend the temple and polish the pipes with today's Groupon to Mountain Therapeutics in Redding. Choose between the following options:
• For $55, you get a one-hour firm Swedish massage (a $110 value).
• For $79, you get a 90-minute colon hydrotherapy session and consultation (a $160 value).
Licensed therapists Marisa DelMonaco and David Schoenberg guide visitors to healthy lifestyles with a slate of holistic treatments that improves bodies inside and out. The colon hydrotherapy session begins with a consultation explaining the procedure's steps and the detoxifying benefits they yield. Marisa then flushes the colon using disposable speculums and pure, reverse-osmosis-filtered water. The cleansing process persuades the large intestine and colon to surrender their accumulated matter, helping the body maintain a balance of hydration and electrolytes, and move waste more efficiently. Removing the body's waste can improve blood, liver, and kidney functionality and eliminate at least one obstacle of dunking on Shaquille O'Neal.
During the hour-long firm Swedish massage, David establishes a rapport with the client before devising a customized plan to alleviate specific sore spots. Emphasizing relaxation techniques for stress reduction, he then uses his gargantuan grip to knead away troublesome back pain and assuage aches caused by wrestling the Lincoln Memorial.
Nobody will mistake Mountain Therapeutics for an ancient Buddhist temple, but the two have more in common than one might think. This is all thanks to licensed massage therapists David Schoenberg and business partner Marisa DelMonaco, whose mutual interest in Buddhist teachings led them to master traditional Thai yoga massage. With a history that stretches back three millennia, this form of bodywork requires a deep commitment on the therapist’s part. This did not deter David. If anything, he was attracted to the ways in which Thai yoga massage exemplifies the Buddhist principles of kindness and compassion.
Today, David administers the slow, rhythmic strokes of Thai yoga massage within the serene confines of their shared studio. When he isn’t using their thumbs, palms, elbows, and feet to seek out sen—or energy—lines across the body, he works to alleviate chronic pains with neuromuscular therapy and increase muscles’ range of movement with myofascial therapy. Considering the holistic emphasis of most of their massages, it’s not surprising that he also offers detoxifying colonics and nutritional coaching to ensure that clients aren’t getting all of their iron from anvil shavings.
