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 $65, you get a 50-minute Swedish/deep tissue combo massage (a $55 value) and either a chiropractic evaluation and treatment ($150) or an acupuncture examination and treatment ($150) at Rest and Relax Bodyworks. An x-ray is included with the treatments if necessary ($75).
Rest and Relax blends Eastern and Western wellness treatments in a nurturing, bamboo-adorned environment. The popular Swedish massage bolsters blood flow, relieves stress, and integrates dry ingredients into skin dough, and the deep-tissue massage obliterates stress without burden-busting dynamite, instead using slow strokes to target specific muscles.
A chiropractic examination reveals joint and spine problems, ameliorating them without medicine or vertebrae-centric obstacle courses. Alternatively, opt for acupuncture, which similarly activates the body's self-healing mechanisms without medicine. Use the treatment to alleviate asthma, stress, insomnia, high blood pressure, and more.
- I've had about 20 massages during my lifetime and decided to give this place a go. It's surprisingly clean and chic once you walk into the door. The real treat was after I walked out of my deep tissue and actually felt healed. – Rich F., Yelp, 1/3/11
- I am a massage therapist myself so I am very sensitive to a therapist who is not on the ball or distracted and I have only experienced good quality work here...just as good or better than more expensive "spas." I would definitely recommend it. – dreamschooldiary, Citysearch
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.
