Like a wedding reception, a massage loosens people up, releases tension from months of stress, and must legally come to a halt when someone yells "Speech!" Raise a glass to relaxation with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a spa package at Shelly’s Massage Therapy in Medina (a $75 total value). The package includes:
- A one-hour massage (a $60 value)
- A paraffin-wax hand treatment (a $15 value)
Licensed massage therapist Shelly Fox, owner of Shelly’s Massage Therapy, coaxes tension from clients' physiques with a variety of massage modalities. Tension collectors can choose from four genres of massage. Soft tissues slacken under the smooth, rolling strokes of a relaxation massage, and fingers finds muscle strain lodged in deep tissue using focused pressure and GPS systems in a therapeutic massage. Alternatively, cranial-sacral therapy gently massages the skull and vertebrae with the goal of balancing the flow of liquid in the nervous system, and foot reflexology treks to the body’s south pole. The pampering party culminates with a paraffin hand treatment that steeps paws in a wax bath, leaving palms silky and fingers sympathetic to the plight of candles.
Although Shelly's Massage Therapy sometimes offers a discounted rate online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Shelly's Massage Therapy
It’s appropriate that licensed massage therapist Shelly Fox decorates her office with elements that evoke the ocean. After all, her smooth, methodical strokes are reminiscent of waves lapping against the shore, and her deep-tissue techniques are designed to break up the sturdiest of sailor's knots. Among her specialty modalities, Shelly’s relaxation massage enhances circulation and stimulates the release of endorphins. Her therapeutic sessions target especially troublesome muscles, employing firmer pressures to alleviate aches. Aside from these more-traditional techniques, Shelly’s foot reflexology and cranial-sacral therapy rely on gentle pressure to relieve stress and stimulate the fluid surrounding the head and spinal cord.
