Like a potato, if the human body is not properly mashed and moisturized, it will never be used for anything more than a science-project battery. Make sure your body is properly fluffed and buttered with today's soothing Groupon: for $35, you get a one-hour massage at Pura Vida Massage & Wellness (a $70 value), located in Lake Oswego.
Experienced massage therapist Crystal specializes in ashiatsu massage, a technique that utilizes both hands and feet for deep muscle relaxation. A variety of other massages are offered, including a hot-stone massage, performed with heated stones and oils to melt away muscle tension and all thoughts of work, errands, and the pending uprising of the dolphins. A pregnancy massage can relieve the back pain that stems from carrying around a person in your body, while a myofascial release massage eases aches and fatigue brought on by last week's leapfrogging-around-the-borders-of-Nebraska event.
The benefits of massage are bountiful, and you can embrace them all as you repose in a room glowing with candles and soft lamp light, drifting off to the tender, loving, and caring sounds of waterfalls as your aches and worries are massaged away. Each massage includes a hot-towel treatment, during which heat radiates across the skin to soften the muscles in preparation for the onslaught of tranquility. Schedule your hour of relaxation online.
