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 $39, you get your choice of a one-hour Swedish (a $75 value), deep-tissue (an $85 value), sports (an $85 value), reflexology (an $85 value), or pregnancy (a $75 value) massage at Movement Restoration in Scottsdale. Movement Restoration's expert therapists present tense ligaments with a choice of five rejuvenating massages. To promote blood flow and put body and mind at ease, the classic Swedish massage encompasses a series of long, light strokes, whereas the reflexology treatment homes in on nervous centers in the hands and feet to relieve tension throughout the entire musculature. Those suffering from chronic aches and knots will benefit from a deep-tissue massage's joint articulation and focused pressure. The sports massage zeroes in on athletic conditions to revive flexibility, mobility, and arms permanently frozen in slam-dunk position; pregnant conditions, however, require the personalized relief and tender touch of a pregnancy massage, which soothes tension caused during any trimester. Following the treatment, blissed-out bodies can flaunt their newfound flexibility amid the restaurants and shops surrounding the neighborhood clinic.
At Movement Restoration, massage therapists seek to do exactly what the practice's name describes: restore mobility to stress-stiffened limbs and backs. They do this by not only soothing tense muscles with Swedish and deep-tissue massage modalities but also enhancing the experience with specialty treatments. Hot and cool stones join forces during LaStone therapy, helping to stimulate and relax the circulatory system better than a time-sensitive email sung in Gregorian chants. Thai massage incorporates yoga, gentle stretching, and rocking to liberate stubborn knots.
