Without the loosening effects of massage, shoulders would stiffen into immobility and fall victim to freeloading parrots and the burden of carrying Earth's heavyset brother, Girth. Pamper your perches with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a 60-minute deep-tissue, therapeutic, or stress-relaxation massage at Progressive Sports Medicine in Burlington (a $100 value).
Progressive Sports Medicine's team of registered massage therapists soothe and knead bodies burdened by injury or seeking relaxation of muscles and minds. The slow, forceful strokes of a deep-tissue massage target buried layers of muscle and connective tissue to heighten healing of damaged or injured muscles. Rather than focusing on one spot, a relaxation massage treats entire bodies to calm nerves, increase endorphins and help funny bones craft stronger punch lines. Treating chronic health conditions such as headaches or back pain, a therapeutic massage sequesters target zones and nudges aching areas toward speedier respite. As therapists command muscles to unclench by tapping Morse code onto backs, patients luxuriate in clinic rooms adorned with framed sports jerseys.
