For centuries, mankind has envied pizza dough and wondered how we too could be kneaded to relaxed, savory states without paying for the luxury of being escorted via wooden paddle to a Sicilian brick oven. Be pounded into the shape of relaxation with today's Groupon: for $35, you get your choice of either a Swedish or deep-tissue massage at Soothing Touch Massage (a $70 value).
Soothing Touch Massage is helmed by professional licensed therapist Cathy Abbott, who calms ornery muscles by applying therapeutic massage techniques in the comfort of her studio space. Curb chronic pain with a 60-minute, deep-tissue treatment to relieve tension in muscles, connective tissues, and the warm-blooded walkways between. Athletes, physical-therapy patients, and overzealous grocery-cart pushers benefit the most from deep-tissue diversions, which apply pressure to muscle surfaces through hand strokes and expressive coupon use. Or, cruise a more placid plane of relaxation with 60 minutes of Swedish muscle work, which uses light or medium pressure to loosen knots and alleviate stress, easing overworked muscles and melting tension into a conveniently positioned bucket. An effective treatment for stress reduction and the improvement of blood circulation, a Swedish massage also relieves anxiety, depression, and trauma resulting from having a quarter painfully extracted from your ear by a street magician.
Abbott's dedication to muscle maneuverability runs deep, along with her national certification in a variety of mediums, including deep-tissue and Swedish practices. Within her studio, she upholds the benefits of massage therapy, which include improving soft-tissue healing, range of motion, and confidence for entering dance battles.
Upgrade to a 90-minute massage for an additional $30.
