While the body is a temple, that temple is unfortunately comprised of Jenga blocks that are under the dubious supervision of four-year-olds. Don't fall over with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a pain assessment, consultation, and 60-minute relief treatment at Shannon VanBlaricom Therapist (a $68 value). This Groupon is valid at the Fairview Avenue and West Wainwright locations.
At Shannon VanBlaricom Therapist, the eponymous purveyor combines a slate of three separate therapies in an attempt to relieve pain and ease stress from bodies. Guests begin the roughly 75-minute session by meeting with Shannon to discuss specific ailments and their favorite types of tea cozies. Based on this information, Shannon then begins a customized, one-hour treatment, in which a triumvirate of methods come together: Onsen therapy attempts long-term relief through the remedy of structural imbalances, ortho-bionomy taps into gentle movements and positions to help ease muscle tension and increase flexibility, and craniosacral therapy's mild, hands-on methods aim to soothe the central nervous system. All methods are performed without forceful manipulations or repeated listens of orca whales' daily affirmations.
