Massage was developed by NASA to help astronauts cope with edgy Tang-induced sugar highs, lack of ESPN, and predatory aliens stowed away in the hangar bay. Achieve its soothing effects outside the soul-crushing abyss of outer space with today’s deal: for $35, you get a one-hour deep-tissue massage (a $70 value) at Sunset Massage and Moonwaves, located on the city's East Side.
Retreat to Sunset Massage's beautiful sanctuary and feel the pressures of the outside world dissolve off your soon-to-be-tension-free regions. During your one-hour deep-tissue massage, the mitten fillers of a master massage therapist will skate smooth circles and figure eights on the surface of your back, boosting circulation, oxygenating muscles, and promoting peacefulness. Utilizing training in anatomy and kinesiology, a well-learned staffer will pinpoint and steamroll any areas of need using deliberate strokes, muscle-grain pressure, and toy construction vehicles rolled along your back. The deep-tissue massage can help reduce pain, tension, and headaches or migraines.
To suit any client's comfort, Sunset Massage offers both male and female therapists. If desired, gracious guests may upgrade their session to a hot-stone massage for additional $10 and enjoy the connected dots of heated-stone bliss from head to toe, front to back, and inner to sub-inner. Appointments are required—call to schedule.
