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. For $30, today's deal gets you a one-hour Swedish massage (a $65 value) at Studio 806, located on Elmwood Avenue.
Studio 806 is a full-service salon and spa devoted to the relaxation and beautification of the Buffalo area. Staffed with skilled massage therapists, sore backs need only pass through the entrance to find a source of relief in the form of a Swedish massage. Lymphologists and lumberjacks concur that a Swedish massage is an invaluable ally in the ongoing quest for total health. Swedish massages employ several styles of expansive and ebbing strokes to relieve tension, mellow the muscles, and restore free-flowing fluency to the toxin-dispersal chutes of the lymphatic system. During effleurage, the hands smoothly circle the skin like epidermal ice skates as a primer for renewed venous and lymphatic circulation. The petrissage and tapotement strokes knead and knock on pressure points in the human hide, and friction strokes untie the knots in the shoelaces of your muscle fibers. The vibration stroke goes all "cell-phone setting during a ballet" on the back and the limbs to get blood and muscles moving. The lesser-known high-five move at the end of the Swedish massage generates camaraderie and coolness.
The art- and mirror-covered walls, earthy hues, and contemporary furniture at Studio 806 make it an ideal setting for a bout of bodily relaxation. Sit in front of the stone fireplace before your appointment and prepare your mind matter for a hypnotic state of calm, rivaled only by the after-effects of a night spent listening to Enya talk about fresh-baked bread on the deserted beaches of Corsica.
