Having sore muscles, like signing a five-year lease or wearing lead socks, makes it difficult to move. Evict tensely wound tenants with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a 50-minute shiatsu massage from Tallahassee Chinese Medicine (a $65 value).
With more than 20 years of experience in treating patients, Craig Thomas promotes health and healing through an array of traditional Eastern modalities. Muscles strained from the daily grind or days of grinding titanium coffee beans can find relief with a 50-minute shiatsu massage—an ancient practice in which trained phalanges apply pressure to the body to soothe stress and calm the mind. Muscles, tendons, and ligaments are relaxed, which helps to increase the effectiveness of acupuncture treatments and snake impressions.
Tallahassee Chinese Medicine
As a licensed acupuncturist and trained massage therapist with more than 15 years of experience, Dr. Craig Thomas of Tallahassee Chinese Medicine has the background needed to heal ailing patients at the root of their symptoms. His acupuncture sessions—which involve placing fine-tipped needles into specific pressure points along the body—are said to relieve arthritis, headaches, allergies, and dozens of other maladies. Thomas considers shiatsu massage an important part of the holistic-healing process too, since it helps to increase circulation, reduce stress, and loosen joints. The center also doles out herbal medicines free from heavy metals, pesticides, and swear words on the bottles.
