Massage was developed by NASA to help astronauts cope with edgy Tang-induced sugar highs, lack of ESPN, and predatory aliens stowed in the hangar bay. Achieve its soothing effects outside the soul-crushing abyss of outer space with today’s Groupon: for $34, you get a one-hour Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, shiatsu, reflexology, or pregnancy massage (a $69 value) at onspot massages.
The certified masters of muscle stiffness mitigation at onspot massages carefully untie the tight knots of tendon tension with a smorgasbord of relaxing massage rubdowns. Opt for the long, sweeping strokes of the Swedish massage to help improve blood flow, stimulate the lymphatic system, and gelatinize muscles into the consistency of freshly churned butter while enjoying a creamy sea of deep relaxation and Scandinavian surrealism. Bring bodies back into neuromuscular balance with a deep-tissue massage by soothing sinews with slow strokes and penetrative pressure to treat soft-tissue injuries, relieve muscular pain, and increase circulation. A sports massage ails athletes by focusing on the set of muscles used in their particular sport, enhancing endurance and performance while lessoning the chance for future injury. Influenced by the Chinese system of acupuncture and cocktail wiener preparation, the shiatsu massage replaces needles with kneads to arouse the body's energy pathways and bolster general wellness. Onspot massages provides a back-relieving pregnancy massage for clients carrying womb tenants, as well as a reflexology massage that can target various areas of the body through a hidden remote control in the sole of the foot. Clients receive an aromatherapy hot-towel therapy as a calming coda to their restorative treatments.
