What You'll Get
If you've ever sat beside a roaring fire and wished its flame fingers would reach out and rub away your aches and pains, today's deal gives you all the warmth of a fire massage without the uncomfortable burns. For $55, you get a 60-minute massage from the warm-handed therapists at Shakti MindBody Studio, conveniently located in the Mt. Vernon/Shaw community (a $120–$150 value). Choose to melt your muscles with a hot-stone massage or work out deep-set kinks and childhood traumas with a deep-tissue massage. Make your choice when you call ahead to schedule an appointment.
Stressful things such as jobs, bull stampedes, and supermarket hockey can transform your once-nimble Gumby-esque muscles into rigid two-by-fours. A hot-stone massage will relight your internal furnace and flexabilify your tense muscles. Shakti's friendly massage therapist strategically arranges gently heated smooth lava stones on your body to deliver a comfortable warmth that will drain away tension and bring your muscles to optimal stress exorcism temperature. Tackle more serious knots and built-up tension with a deep-tissue massage. Your therapist will use surgically precise pressure to break up adhesions, just like in curling, resulting in a newfound lightness and appreciation for boxed wine and soft jazz.
Inside Shakti MindBody's inviting purple storefront, your mind will quietly embrace your body, and the friendly faces of clients and staff will make you feel as if you're relaxing at home in the abandoned massage studio you rent as an apartment. Buy a few extra as gifts to send to your high-strung sis or your overworked boss just before you put in your request for time off.
