The Spanish Inquisition had many horrific torture methods, but none as justly feared as their coup de grace: people who think they give good massages. Today's deal spares you and your better half from having to half-heartedly say, "That feels… good" through gritted teeth. For $27, you and a friend or sweetie get a class in massage technique from Nirvana Bodyworks (a $55 value) at the Cortiva Institute in Scottsdale. You can also take the class solo for $15, a $30 value. Classes last two hours and will be held on Saturdays starting at 9:30 a.m., noon, and 2:30 p.m. The first class is February 20, and upcoming workshops reach into July. Check out Nirvana's website for specific dates. More classes will be added if demand requires.
During your lesson, you'll learn basic massage techniques that address the most easily stressed parts of the body: the head, neck, shoulders, hands, feet, and stress bladder. The atmosphere is fun, relaxed, and safe, with ample demonstrations and practice time. You'll also get plenty of one-on-one instruction from a professional massage therapist.
Besides being a perfect Valentine's Day follow-up, today's Groupon will also provide a much-needed correction in technique for any boyfriends whose "patented sensual foot rub" leaves you limping for days. Once you've learned to give good massages, your family members, sweethearts, and friends will classify your precious hands as "golden" and thus incapable of hard labor, dish-washing, and typing at work. In the interest of keeping your magic fingers nimble for kneading, you can sit back as your loved ones perform your chores for you.
