It takes about 15 muscles to smile, 50 to frown, and 148 to save a curbside couch from life in a landfill. Soothe sympathetic sinews with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a 90-minute massage at Rogue Salon and Massage in North Charleston (a $100 value).
Within Rogue Salon and Massage's homey environs, an elite cadre of muscle soothers and their pet beds dole out deluxe pain- and stress-relieving massage services. Amid the gentle glow of soy candles and a serene soundtrack, the experienced back babiers administer sweeping Swedish massage, pampering prenatal massage, and sports massage to relieve competitive tension. With several massagineers trained in ache-alleviating neuromuscular therapy and others prepped for deep-tissue and reflexology, Rogue Salon and Massage is equipped, like a mischievous deep-sea diver, to untie knots at any depth.
As environmentally friendly as they are body-conscious, massage treatments use organic lotion, oil, or cream, and are accompanied by select aromatherapy oils. Expert massage therapists strive to leave bodies as flexible as Rogue’s scheduling, which can adapt to even the strictest of customers’ routines.
