Like a python wrapped around a cactus soaked in rubber cement, a muscle knot can be hard to unwind without help. Enlist the assistance of a pro with today’s Groupon to Serendipity Bodyworks in Cary.
$37 for a 60-minute customized massage (a $75 value)
Helmed by Cindy Wright, a licensed massage therapist certified in oncology massage, Serendipity Bodyworks eases pain and stress with custom kneading sessions that have earned the praise of the Cary News. Knots melt faster than a snowman on a stairmaster when Wright blends the long, flowing strokes of Swedish massage with alternative healing techniques such as acupressure and reflexology.
Though Wright serves clients from all walks of life, she aims in particular to make cancer patients’ lives as comfortable as possible with oncology massage, which she offers either at a discounted rate or free of charge to offset the financial burden of cancer treatments. In addition to releasing tension from the back and the neck, sessions can address cancer-specific concerns such as scar tissue and immune function. As a fellow cancer patient, Wright brims with empathy as she employs techniques designed to reduce anxiety and minimize chemotherapy’s side effects.
