Caring for your body is a task that knows no end, much like counting all the stars in the night sky or shaving Mount Rushmore. Attend to your anatomy and protect your health with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a 60-minute Swedish, deep-tissue, or prenatal massage at Nichole Honeycutt Massage Therapy in Durham (a $65 value).
A graduate of the Natural Touch School of Massage Therapy, Nichole Honeycutt holistically heals with an array of soothing massages. Warm treatment rooms, housed in a charming red brick building, treat ears to soft tinkling music as clients relax on plush massage tables and choose between three modalities. The long, flowing strokes of Swedish massage negate soreness, while sending minds to a state of tranquility akin to floating on a cloud listening to Enya through headphones made out of marshmallows. Chronically tense muscles relax under the targeted pressure of the personalized deep-tissue massage, which aims to loosen stiff necks and untie knotted backs. Alternatively, the light touch of a prenatal massage can ease discomfort caused by harboring a miniature soccer player in one's belly.
Nichole Honeycutt Massage Therapy
Seven years serving as a medical assistant spurred Nichole Honeycutt—a graduate of the Natural Touch School of Massage and a member of the American Massage Therapy Association—to embrace the preventative philosophies of holistic therapy, which she honed doling out massages in a spa and later a chiropractic clinic. From hushed massage rooms, where soft music, naturally hued walls, and table plants channel tranquility onto the plush beds, Nichole lavishes tense muscles with the oils and long, flowing strokes of Swedish massage. Other modalities include the bamboo fusion massage, which relies on heat to alleviate stress and relieve muscles sore from arm wrestling jammed slot machines. Couples massage classes, energy work, and invigorating salt and sugar scrubs augment the menu of massage services.
