In addition to the humiliation of being buried by dogs and dug up by science teachers, skeletons are ornery because they lack the musculature necessary to get massaged. Avoid taking tendons for granted with today's Groupon: for $52, you get a Medispa wellness package, which includes a 70-minute massage and a detox capsule session at Stress Busters Massage's Walnut location (a $131 value).
The experienced massage therapists at Stress Busters Massage help increase circulation and decrease tension through a sweeping suite of professional soreness-mitigating services. Like most plays, the Medispa wellness package is performed over two separate visits. On the first visit, massage therapists indulge bone insulators with a choice of one of Stress Busters' 70-minute massages, including Swedish, deep tissue, sports, or prenatal. On the second visit, wilted limbs spruce up at a 45-minute session in the Alpha 2010 spa system, a self-contained sauna. While heads stay exposed, supported by a soft contour cushion and cooled with two air fans to keep the face cool, inharmonious bodies are tuned in an enclosed, heated massaging bed. Choose from up to six aromatherapy blends while the soothing sounds of relaxing music, nature, or harmonizing sirens emanate from the built-in stereo system. After emerging from the pamper-pod, customers take a 20-minute stretch on a reclining chair equipped with a magnotherapy pad, which can restore balance, increase energy, and relieve pain for up to a week. Sip on a bottle of ionized alkaline water for a boost of hydration, pH balance, and antioxidants, inspiring a more relaxed state and bestowing bodies with magical talents, such as the ability to operate chopsticks with just elbows.
