Similar to past tenses, tense backs are related to things that happened a while ago and are incomprehensible to most 5-year-olds. Brush up on the basics of back bliss with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a 60-minute Swedish massage at Shear Perfection in Oakdale (a $60 value).
Shear Perfection's strong-armed massage therapists unravel muscular knots during relaxing Swedish massages. Guests recline on a heated massage table, as ambient melodies and gurgles from an indoor fountain transport minds to tranquil spaces, where wistful childhood memories play out against voiceover narration from Gilbert Gottfried. A seasoned massage therapist unleashes five styles of long, flowing strokes, using light-to-medium pressure to help reduce muscular pain and promote relaxation. Full-body Swedish massages also boost blood flow, lymphatic movement, and cravings for lingonberry spread.
It’s hard to imagine a coastal vacation in southwestern Pennsylvania, but the painted arches entwined in vines frame a calming pool of water, and the deeper blues of the sea stretch into the horizon, inviting the relaxed gaze of clients as they settle into the salon's chairs to find escape from the everyday. Those who concentrate hard enough or induce self-hypnosis may convince themselves that the air from the blow dryer is really a soft ocean breeze, as stylists work tirelessly to create cutting-edge hairstyles that exceed their client's expectations or to apply extensions that sustain the illusion of longer locks for three to four months.
