Like fine marble statues, human bodies must be maintained on a regular basis, lest their surfaces dull, their north sides moss, and their forearms fall off. Lavish your life vehicle with today's Groupon: for $75, you get a 50-minute Swedish/deep tissue combo massage (a $55 value) and either a chiropractic evaluation and treatment (a $150 value) or an acupuncture examination and treatment (a $150 value) at Rest & Relax Bodyworks. An x-ray is included with the treatments, if necessary (a $75 value) (up to a $280 total value).
Rest & Relax Bodyworks’ tranquilizing treatments blend Eastern and Western wellness-achieving methods in a nurturing, bamboo-adorned environment. The popular Swedish massage bolsters blood flow, relieves stress, and integrates dry ingredients into skin dough; the deep-tissue massage obliterates stress without burden-busting dynamite, instead using slow strokes to target specific muscles. After ditching freshly kneaded tension, choose a chiropractic examination to reveal joint and spine problems before ameliorating them without medicine or vertebrae-centric obstacle courses; or, opt for acupuncture, which similarly activates the body's self-healing mechanisms without medicine. Use the treatment to alleviate asthma, stress, insomnia, and high blood pressure.
Rest and Relax Bodyworks
Founded by Scott J. Fox, DC, and Brian Weiss, PhD, Rest and Relax Bodyworks integrates Western medical science and traditional Eastern medicine. As relaxing music plays, they help bodies regain energy and proper posture through chiropractic alignment and acupuncture, and let go of tension during seven varieties of massage. They also address skin issues with facials, peels, and waxing treatments. Their waiting room abounds with potted plants, dark wood accents, and South East Asian-inspired artwork prints, as well as ornate oriental rugs that catch dropped cell phones without a word of reproach. A hallway leads to treatment rooms aglow with soft light from wall sconces, as a Buddha statue looks on serenely.
