Getting a deep-tissue massage frees you from persistent pain, just like removing a heart that loves too much. Let it all go with this Groupon.
$32.50 for a 60-Minute Massage ($65 Value)
Licensed massage therapist Leah Virata relaxes clients with the gentle, flowing strokes of the Swedish modality, which also works to increase blood flow and boost the metabolism. For those with tougher aches, she can use the focused kneading of deep-tissue massage or the isolated pressure of trigger-point therapy. Otherwise, she can tap into the nerve pathways in hands and feet to relax extremities, pinpoint other troublesome body parts, and cultivate overall well-being.
Leah Virata at Salon Au Rouge
The throaty purr of saxophones drifts from Salon Au Rouge into neighboring woods and across a creek. Jazz music and glasses of wine in the salon work with decor to simulate the feeling of having stepped into a Parisian salon. In the two-level chartreuse building, merlot-hued curtains billow in gentle breezes like the robe of a magistrate who is actually just kids standing on each other's shoulders. April Eastman—the owner and a stylist with more than 20 years of experience—designed the salon, and she walks among potted flowers to fill wine glasses and coffee mugs. Her apprentice-trained stylists cut, color, and sculpt hair with products from Redken, Wella, Keune, and L'Oréal Organics, concluding each appointment with at-home styling tips. Away from the styling floor, the nail technician pampers hands with manicures and feet with pedicures, wielding OPI polishes or chip-resistant Axxium gel. Inside the salon's newly fashioned private suites, massage therapists knead away tension with Swedish and deep-tissue techniques, and aestheticians care for skin with oxygen-infused facials and waxing services.
