Before the dawn of day spas, luxurious rejuvenating treatments were exclusively enjoyed by crowned heads of Europe and routinely fluffed couch cushions. Move in on their monopoly with today's Groupon: for $44, you get a one-hour deep-tissue or Swedish massage at Rainbow Wellness Center and Spa in Rockville (an $88 value).
Certified, professional massage therapists bestow soothing services upon stressed soul sacks, transforming their owners from exhausted to exhilarated. Sidle stiff shoulders and tense torsos up to the dexterous hands of knot-nixing kneaders for a one-hour massage, available in a duo of melting modes. Opt for a deep-tissue massage to mollify muscles strained from prolonged sports injury and snubs from snooty ligaments, or choose the varied strokes of Swedish massage to deftly erase nagging sore spots.
