Like Hawaii, relaxation can be a challenging state to reach. Ensnare elusive serenity with today’s Groupon to The Conduit Center in East Hartford. Choose between the following options:
• For $35, you get a one-hour individual or couples gong chair treatment (up to an $80 value).
• For $37, you get a 60-minute therapeutic massage (a $75 value).
The Conduit Center marshals an ambichronistic mix of new-age and traditional approaches to heal and relax frazzled forms. The one-hour gong chair treatment coddles individuals, couples, or inexplicably handcuffed odd-couples in a comfy, reclining chair or on a blanket-covered floor. Guests don sleep masks, eliminating visual distractions, while a gongs-person gently coaxes sonic waves of relaxation, leaving behind a sense of physical relaxation and renewed focus.
For a more manual form of relaxation, the one-hour therapeutic massage employs a therapist's deft digits to sap tension from bone movers with professional aplomb. The 60-minute technique stimulates circulation and leaves bodies more flexible than a yogi trapped in a taffy puller.
The Conduit Center
Ancient Himalayan singing bowls and the calming tone of a gong envelop The Conduit Center’s space as individuals lie comfortably on pillows and blankets, letting the deep vibrations and soothing sounds lull them into a deep meditative state. These sound-meditation concerts are just one aspect of the center’s meditation services, which are designed to create a state of effortless relaxation for each participant. Guests can also opt for vibrational sound massage and singing-bowl sessions, both of which use vibration and sound to calm the entire body while boosting mental focus, helping the body heal while making ordinary soup bowls seem sadly inadequate.
In addition to meditation, the center conducts yoga, tai chi, and qigong classes that are both challenging and accessible to all levels of participants. Complimentary herbal teas, massage therapy, and individual or marriage counseling are also offered as part of the center's goals to create a tranquil environment where each individual can quell anxieties and start a personal journey of self-exploration.
