Before music production went digital, pop stars often commissioned rhythmic back massages to achieve fluttery vibrato and reach the tip-toppiest of high notes. For $20, today's Groupon gets you pampered like a celebrity songstress with a 30-minute Swedish massage from Solstice Massage Spa (a $45 value), located in Old Town Clovis.
The massage-supplier of the Solstice Massage Spa is Misty, the former official massage therapist of the Cirque du Soleil troupe. She is certified through the California Massage Therapy Council and is a member of the Hands-On Trade Association. Like a gentle shepherd ushering sheep into the cozy folds of a sleepy brain, the gentle strokes of Solstice Massage Spa's Swedish massage will guide your muscles into deep relaxation, with the goal of improving blood flow, stimulating the lymphatic system, and relieving tension. The half-hour massage is long enough to send a clear message of comfort to muscles, and quick enough to fit in between boulder lifting, chainsaw juggling, and business negotiations determined by sumo matches. Backs will emerge from the spa as flexible and eager as a wiggly puppy in a shop of beef jerky chandeliers.
Cancellations must provide at least 24 hours notice.
