Inaccessible to the hands, back musculature often falls prey to freeloading "kick me" signs and hitchhiking parrots. Liberate a beleaguered back with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a 60-minute rejuvenating massage at Quiescence Day Spa in Petaluma (an $80 value).
Using all-natural body treatments, Quiescence Day Spa relaxes tightly strung tendons with an array of massage options. For a full hour, certified massage therapists knead dorsal musculature in rhythmic, circular patterns, corralling sluggish lymph into motion like a cowboy attempting to lasso a Tasmanian devil. Natural eucalyptus oil aids in melting tension, enveloping senses with the plant’s aromatic stress-busting properties and treating overworked backs to an invigorating tingle as knot-untying strokes relax stiff fibers.
