It takes about 15 muscles to smile, 50 to frown, and 148 to save a curbside couch from life in a landfill. Soothe sympathetic sinews with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a Swedish massage or a deep-tissue massage at Synergy Wellness Spa in Murfreesboro (a $70 value).
Synergy Wellness Spa houses a muscle-kneading battalion of licensed massage therapists, each with a specialization in various types of massage. Fall under the spell of their dexterous digits for a one-hour Swedish massage, which uses long, flowing strokes to soothe and relax stress-ridden body dough. The hour-long deep-tissue massage applies potent pressure to aching backs, its rigorous muscle maneuvers striving to relieve pain and help release overworked ligaments from their cigar-chomping skeleton bosses.
Synergy Wellness's quaint waiting area envelops guests in an inviting spa environment adorned with carpeted floors and whimsically curved flora. The private treatment rooms are dimly lit, allowing patrons to bring along their pet fruit bats for a delicate wing massage.

Jessica blends deep-tissue techniques with trigger-point therapy in her massages, which she performs using her hands, forearms, and three-foot antennae.
