Though it doesn't provide the discomfort and high ticket prices associated with an airport pat-down, a massage is still an effective tool for discovering concealed knives and small firearms. Prove you’re not packing in the most relaxing way with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a 60-minute massage at Ready2Relax in Metairie. This Groupon can be used toward your choice of a Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, or reflexology massage.
Massage therapist Ann Corwin backs precise pressure and knowing kneads with more than 17 years of muscle manipulation experience. Sink onto a sumptuous, secure massage table in her private studio while her wise wigglers talk your deep-rooted tension off the ledge of your ligaments. Let worries slide from your shoulders like pads of melted butter during a relaxing Swedish massage, which is aided by luxurious oils and lotions. Or, help alleviate chronic pain due to injury or misalignment with a deep-tissue massage, which addresses the tension beneath your back's surface pancake. If you are a highly active person or a moderately active wildebeest, opt for the sports massage, which soothes athletic-related muscle strain, reduces pain and swelling, and boosts the body's ability to recover after strenuous workouts. For a foot-focused massage that will sprinkle magic throughout your entire body, opt for a reflexology session. This technique utilizes pressure points in the feet to improve circulation, aid nervous-system function, and help with both healing and heels.

The massage therapists at Ready2Relax send calming ripples across muscles with comforting bodywork. Contended sighs drift across the studio as the medium pressure of flowing Swedish strokes tempers aches. The therapists are also trained in deep-tissue pressure or reflexology, which can help to access pain situated deeper in tissue. Volcanic rocks soak up warmth, letting them slip across tense musculature to improve mobility after working out or smashing all the cinder blocks at a rival karate dojo.
