For centuries, mankind has envied pizza dough and wondered how we too could be kneaded to relaxed, savory states without paying for the luxury of being escorted via wooden paddle to a Sicilian brick oven. Enjoy oven-free relaxation with today's Groupon to Pathway to Perfection on East 71st Street. Choose between the following options:
- For $30, you get a one-hour massage (up to a $95 value).
- For $55, you get a 90-minute massage (up to a $125 value).
Certified massage therapist David Merriweather pampers and pummels stressed out bodies and minds with eight types of massage techniques. Opt for a Swedish massage ($75 or $100) that melts stress with light- to medium-pressure strokes and aroma-therapeutic oils, or choose a hot-stone massage ($95 or $125), in which heated basalt rocks are placed on pressure points to warm away stiffness, anxiety, and traumatic memories of middle-school gym class. Clients can lounge languidly during a one-hour treatment or opt to extend their relaxation regimen to 90 minutes. De-knotted bodies will leave Pathway to Perfection with muscular fibers singing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching cacophonously like a death-metal barbershop quartet.
Pathway to Perfection
David Merriweather's massage skills don't just ease the muscle aches of office executives and busy parents—they were also fast, focused, and aggressive enough to land him a job as a massage therapist for Cirque du Soleil. With this experience under his belt, David's circus-trained hands dance over his clients' bodies to assuage pain through a gamut of massage modalities. His deeply relaxing Swedish massages utilize light to medium pressure and aromatherapeutic oils to loosen tension and stimulate circulation, and the warmth of heated basalt stones soothes multiple layers of muscular tissue during hot-stone massages. For relief from deep-seated aches, pains, and sinew skirmishes, David wields the pinpointed pressure of deep-tissue massage or trigger-point therapy. Sports massage helps to increase the range of motion of athletes and puppets who wish to become real.
