Today's Groupon will restore your body to a state of relaxed joyousness unlike any since you got your braces removed by Ken Griffey, Jr. For $35, you get a one-hour massage from licensed massage therapists Susan or Shane Epperly. Soak away the worries that have lodged themselves in the nooks of your joints and the crooks of your connective tissues, while inhaling a bouquet of soothing, therapeutic scents.
Retreat to their beautiful sanctuary, conveniently located in The Kinney Suites Building, and feel the pressures of the outside world dissolve off your soon-to-be-tension-free shoulders. Susan, a specialist in pain relief, perfected her back-patting skills at the Texas Healing Arts Institute and the Lauterstein-Conway massage school and clinic. With certification in flexibility therapy and experience with the deep-muscle stimulator vibration device, Shane is also skilled at treating athletes, so curlers can ease off the back and shoulder pain that comes with all that vigorous ice sweeping. Your customized 60-minute session incorporates soothing techniques, including clinical massage therapy, trigger-point therapy, negative pressure cupping, and postural and gait analysis.
Get this Groupon to relieve anxiety, numb your brain for an hour, or loosen some back knots, including the alpine coil, the angler's loop, and the Dutch marine bowline.
One Yelper gives Shane & Susan Epperly, LMT five stars:
- Susan is sooooo wonderfully fantastically awesome - she has worked out knots in my back that have seriously been there for YEARS. – Peggy G.
Less Notable Beatles
Massages are great for melting away tension, especially when you bring a friend (or band mate) who you’ve been prickly with lately. If relaxing massages had been more available in 1960s Liverpool, the Beatles probably could’ve taken their own advice to “work it out” and remain a 24-piece ensemble, instead of firing all but four members. Rock historians have painstakingly pieced together what they believe is a list of the early, cast-off members of the Beatles, but as they say, “Tomorrow never knows”:
- Jorge, Paug, Snog, and Pringle
- Jom, Porge, Snail, and Jimbo
- Don, Saul, Lore, and Data
- Yan, June, Rodge, and Jingle
- Blog, Snopes, Dogg, and Shinguard

Within a private practice studio adorned with original artwork, asian antiques, and travel mementos, husband-and-wife duo Shane and Susan Epperly take aim at aches and pain with clinical massage therapy. They employ a diverse range of enhancements, spanning from soothing hot towels, aromatherapy, and castor-oil packs to high-tech vibrational deep-muscle stimulation, mechanized EndermoTherapy, and low-level laser therapy. Shane specializes in pain relief through clinical massage, whereas Susan holds training in negative-pressure cupping, which sucks years and forgotten cappuccino foam from the face.
