Having sore muscles, like signing a five-year lease or wearing lead socks, makes it difficult to move. Evict tensely wound tenants with today’s Groupon: for $32, you get a 60-minute massage from Nikki M. at Saundarya Hair Salon & Day Spa in Sanford (a $65 value).
The certified tissue tenderizer at Saundarya draws on an array of massage methods to pamper muscles with relaxing rubdowns. During the 60-minute session, patrons will float atop a cushy massage table as the wellness wizard tailors treatments to individual needs from a hodgepodge of modalities, including Swedish, neuromuscular, and deep-tissue techniques. As traditional strokes melt tension, the therapist may apply pressure on hands and feet for reflexology relief, or festoon backs with LaStone hot and cold river stones to foster a strong connection between mind, body, and intercoastal waterways. Each massage technique works to decrease stress, improve range of motion, and boost flexibility.
