Getting a massage when your muscles ache is a no-brainer, like signing a guy named Michael Bestseller to a publishing contract. You can’t go wrong with this Groupon.
- for a one-hour massage (a $65 value) and pain consultation (a $99 value; a total value)
Choose from the following locations:
- Riverbend Physical Medicine in Wood River
- Chiropractic Works in Collinsville
- Allied Physicians and Rehab of Southern Illinois in Carbondale
During the initial consultation, a practitioner delves into the patient’s health history to see when aches first appeared and how long they’ve been impeding daily activities such as walking and restful sleeping. Palpation and other diagnostic measures seek out the root source of the individual’s hurtful symptoms during a comprehensive pain evaluation. With this newly gleaned information, the massage therapist—under the doctor’s direction—artfully kneads muscles and joints in an attempt to exorcise pain and relieve stress and provide emotional release without turning to drugs or surgery.
