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 $35, you get a choice of a one-hour massage at Serenity Massage, located in North Andover (a $70 value).
A soothing wellness center for stressed souls of all ages, Serenity Massage houses owners Seren Elizabeth and Bethany LaBelle and a team of licensed massage therapists who specialize in mollifying tensed musculature. Patrons can pick their one-hour massage from a total of six options: Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, hot-stone, pregnancy, and Thai-yoga massage. The Swedish massage promotes basic relaxation, using subtle pressure and unsubtle bribery tactics to coax blood to better flow through veins, and the deep-tissue massage penetrates deep into muscles to break down tense sinews. Athletes can call time-out with a sports massage that helps improve flexibility and range of motion, and stressed-out curling-iron jugglers can take a break from the daily grind with the calming hot-stone massage. Take a load off before loading up on diapers with the pregnancy massage, designed to handle neck tension and pregnancy-related sciatica, or take an active role in your relaxation with the Thai-yoga massage, which incorporates floor-mat stretching and rhythmic movements. Benefits of massages include improved posture, injury prevention, stress relief, and reduced muscle tension.
