Giving yourself a massage, like throwing yourself a surprise birthday party or asking for your own hand in marriage, is a surefire disappointment. Leave kneading to the knowledgeable with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a 60-minute deep-tissue massage at Spatini Day Spa (an $85 value).
Spatini Day Spa lavishes attention on beleaguered backs with the pressurized kneads of its deep-tissue massage. During 60-minute sessions, one of Spatini’s experienced massage therapists will unbraid tense fibers with a variety of stress-siphoning strokes, attacking pain epicenters until they're as docile as a lamb spun from cotton candy. After kneading sessions, built up lactic acids will flee the body, leaving patrons with fully functional extremities. While waiting for massage services to commence, relaxation-seekers can soak in the spa's soothing vibes by indulging in a complimentary tea, martini, or cup of drinkable sunshine.
