Massage was developed by NASA to help astronauts cope with edgy Tang-induced sugar highs, lack of ESPN, and predatory aliens stowed in the hangar bay. Achieve its soothing effects outside the soul-crushing abyss of outer space with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get two one-hour massages at the Richmond Alternative Center for Health (a $150 value).
The Richmond Alternative Center for Health catapults patrons into health-aware habits through wellness instruction and treatments including massage services hand-delivered by certified massage therapists. Treat tuckered backs and bodies to two personalized knuckle dances that cater to the demands of each physique. A Swedish massage kneads limb and body stiffness into speedy remission, and a deep-tissue massage plumbs the depths of soreness wells to extricate tension and wished-upon coins. Snipe meddlesome patches of chronic pain or injury with a therapeutic massage, or opt for a relaxation massage to loosen up buzz-killing muscle cells. Newly pliable guests may be privy to such benefits as reduced stress, boosted energy levels, and realization of joints' childhood aspirations.
Before submitting themselves to artful hands, bodies are taken on a tour of the Richmond Alternative Center for Health’s facilities to better comprehend the center’s equipment and credo. A plush lounge area rejuvenates minds with varied reading material and free WiFi, mind shells nest in comfortable chairs, and jaws in need of limbering can snag a nutritious meal from the on-site café.
