Contrary to popular belief, silent-film villains tied heroines to train tracks in hopes that the vibrations from passing locomotives would alleviate tension caused by only communicating through subtitles. Opt for less death-defying relief with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get a 60-minute deep-tissue massage at Santa Rosa Medical Massage (a $78 value).
Santa Rosa Medical Massage's certified massage therapists alleviate tension with the combined relaxation forces of Eastern and Western modalities. A deep-tissue massage excavates buried tension pockets, emptying them of their taut contents and long-forgotten spare change. One hour of strong-armed kneading helps to promote circulation, increase range of motion, and diminish chronic stress resulting from lingering injuries, misalignments, and improperly assembled shoulder joints. Groupon-holders should call ahead or schedule an appointment online.
