Muscles, like the tails of sleeping cats or levers labeled “drain ocean,” were never meant to be pulled. Reverse the damage with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a one-hour Swedish massage at Relaxing Effects (a $65 value).
At Relaxing Effects, licensed massage therapist and educator Roxanne Armstrong flexes her knowledge of muscles and hand movements to relieve individual pains. Before each session, Armstrong discusses any questions the client may have and explains the therapy, clarifying her approach and noting which body parts will receive attention or construction-paper valentines. During a Swedish massage, muscles relax and tension falls by the wayside under the light-to-firm pressure of long, gliding strokes, which are directed at both superficial and deeper muscular tissues. Though intended to provide relief from aches and pains, the massage may also incorporate relaxing elements such as massage lotions or creams by Soothing Touch.
