It takes about 15 muscles to smile, 50 to frown, and 148 to save a curbside couch from life in a landfill. Soothe sympathetic sinews with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a one-hour customized massage at Probodywork in Mountain View (up to a $90 value).
Certified massage therapist Alex Frigino uses his adept hands and incisive eye to conduct massages that help relieve pain and stress according to each muscle owner’s individual needs. Frigino untangles knots with a blend of techniques, including those branded by Swedish, sports, and deep-tissue modalities. He then combines clear communication techniques, a suite of soothing movements, and a transcript of the inspirational film Rudy narrated by Craig T. Nelson to coax the corpus into reaching its full potential of well-being.
For Alex Frigino, there aren't many problems that can't be solved by a good massage. At Probodywork, the professional massage therapist tackles lower-back pain, stress, and sore muscles with modalities such as sports massage, Swedish massage, and hot stones. Unlike some massages, which bestow temporary comfort while leaving underlying issues untreated, Frigino uses his extensive muscular knowledge to calibrate each session to treat both symptoms and causes. To complement these massage treatments, he also clues clients in to potential pain points created by daily lifestyle choices.
