Like a pet rock, the human body must be regularly caressed and pampered, or it’ll cease to be useful for anything but being swallowed by dinosaurs to help with digestion. Put bone boxes to good use with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get a one-hour massage (an $80 value) at Nailphoria Day Spa in Oakland.
Give backs a wicking and limbs a tickling with a soothing massage that lasts for sixty golden minutes inside Nailphoria Day Spa’s stress-melting confines. Kick back and extend out, offering extremities to the graceful hands of a skilled muscle molder that will provide an informative consultation before and after kneading body dough. Opt for the long, soothing strokes of a Swedish massage, the focused, tension-blasting pressure of a deep-tissue massage, or the muscle-rejuvenating touch of a sports massage. A foot-reflexology massage transforms stiff soles into loose and limber shoe-fillers, similar to squirrels snoozing in a pair of fermented pumpkins.
Friendly and professional, the massage therapists work without the rush of the outside world urging them to scream at stubborn back kinks. Inside the walls of Nailphoria's softly lit salon, full of lush earth tones and lightly laden drapery, customers will find a calming place to unwind from a stressful week of pecking keyboard keys or being pecked by birds.
