What You'll Get
Inaccessible to the hands, back musculature often falls prey to freeloading "kick me" signs and hitchhiking parrots. Liberate a beleaguered back with today's Groupon: for $49, you get three half-hour therapeutic body massages at The Healing Body Massage in Orem (a $105 value). At The Healing Body Massage, proprietor Trisha Ure brings more than a decade of experience to the table, working out sore muscles and untying tightened tissues for patients suffering from injury or chronic pain. The massage menu lists several options for releasing tension, including deep-tissue massage, which uses concentrated pressure to decrease inflammation, liberate coagulating toxins, and knead rigid muscles into a softened paste. Anxiety-prone guests, headache sufferers, and overworked yes men may relieve noggins with craniosacral therapy, in which specific head holds are utilized to balance the body’s belfry and bestow an all-over sensation of lightness. Swedish, sports-massage, and trigger-point therapies are also on hand to treat traditionalists, and pregnant women may opt for a prenatal massage to stimulate blood flow, tenderize muscles, and alleviate anxiety caused by constantly wondering which vegetables make the best baby names.
Although only one 30-minute massage may be used per visit, Groupon holders are welcome to split their three massages between multiple people, making today’s deal a great option for sore siblings or the entire Olympic crab-walking team. Guests also have the option of upgrading to a one-hour massage for an additional $20, so grab today’s deal and restore your body to a nubile state of relaxed joyousness unlike any since you got your braces removed.

About The Healing Body Massage
Before performing an exhausting concert, the members of Earth, Wind, and Fire knew exactly how to unwind: a massage from Trisha Ure. They aren't the only ones—musicians in Alice Cooper's and Jack Johnson's bands have also called upon the licensed massage therapist to conjure her kneading magic backstage. These days, Trisha—a Utah College of Massage Therapy graduate with more than 17 years of professional experience—showcases those massaging talents at her very own studio, The Healing Body Massage.
The name is apt, as Trisha's main goal is to relieve bodies of injury and chronic pain by administering medium to deep modalities, such as trigger point therapy. She specializes in helping clients work through chronic pain. Her clients range from car accident victims to athletes, who rely on her intensive strokes to prevent injury or recover from particularly strenuous touchdown dances.
