Like portrait painting, massage demands skillful hands, bold strokes, and a subject who can sit still. Become a human canvas with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a 60-minute massage at Sunset Spa in Mamaroneck (a $100 value). Available massages include the following:
- Medical therapeutic massage
- Reflexology massage with acupressure
- Swedish relaxation massage
- Deep-tissue massage with trigger-point therapy<p>
Versed in various massage styles, Sunset Spa’s experienced massage therapists gently tenderize muscles with four types of 60-minute treatments. Therapists determine each client’s ailment, sensitivity, and tendency to give elephants piggyback rides during a consultation and administer one of four corresponding pressure levels to effectively ease tension. During medical therapeutic massages, tension tamers test muscle stiffness, stretch ligaments, and manipulate joints as they dig into specific problem areas according to a physician diagnosis. Muscle technicians pair reflexology massages with acupressure techniques to knead fingers deep into the tissue of hands, feet, and body, seeking out acupressure points to awaken sleeping internal organs and keep mutinous facial muscles from scowling at babies. Therapists alternatively employ light sweeping strokes to slough off stress during Swedish relaxation massages and perform intense touches to break down muscle core tension during deep-tissue trigger-point therapy.
