Today's side deal massages stress and netherstress out of your corporeal and non-corporal muscles for a sense of ease unmatched on either plane of being. For $40, you get your pick of either a Swedish, deep-tissue, pre/postnatal, or aromatherapy massage at Spirit Wellness Center in Beverly (a $75–$85 value). Appointments are required.
Whichever massage you choose, you can flop onto the table assured that Spirit's licensed massage therapist will treat your pain like an uncompromising karate master treats conveniently placed wooden boards: by gently applying lotions and veneers and lovingly buffing out the knots. Swedish massage uses a light to medium touch to scootch tension from your muscles and restore proper lymphatic flow throughout your body. Deep-tissue technique uses acute pressure on specific trigger points to release tautness and dig out embedded lugnuts. The fragrant oils of a pre/postnatal massage soothe the aches and pains of a baby-hefting body, while aromatherapy calls to action the piquant elements of nature—thyme, eucalyptus, frankincense, and chowder—to balm both mind and body.
