Muscles, like the tails of sleeping cats or levers labeled “drain ocean,” were never meant to be pulled. Reverse the damage with today’s Groupon: for $34, you get a one-hour massage at The Elements on San Jose Boulevard (a $70 value). Choose from the following massage modalities:
- Deep tissue
The licensed massage therapists at The Elements unify the body’s warring chemicals with muscle-soothing lotions and one of seven specialized modalities. Swedish massages whisk away general aches with a flurry of flowing strokes, and deep-tissue techniques ambush chronic stresses with a therapeutic tag-team of fingers and elbows. Shoulders stiff from being tackled or doused with ice-cold sports drinks sprint down the road to recovery after a combination sports massage. Regardless of the modality, the many benefits of massage include increased circulation, reduced cramping, and more flexibility for crowded bus or clown-car commutes.
