Massages are a time-honored method of alleviating stress, much like the ancient art of crafting origami swans out of midterm exams. Ace relaxation with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a 90-minute massage and energy work session at Returning to Wholeness in Amherst (a $90 value).
Deborah Wilson, Returning to Wholeness’s holistic counselor, kinesiologist, and massage therapist, helps heal clients’ mind, body, and spirit with combined body-mind sessions. Using transformational kinesiology techniques, she’ll work to free muscles of the emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical blockages keeping clients from reaching their goals or the top shelf at the grocery store. Wilson will then spend the last 20–45 minutes of the session kneading away physical aches and pains through deep-tissue, Swedish, and trigger-point massage techniques.
