Like a potato, if the human body is not properly mashed and moisturized, it will never be used for anything more than a science-project battery. Make sure your body is properly fluffed and buttered with today's soothing Groupon: for $150, you get a five-hour massage lesson for two people from Joel Tull at The Human Touch in Greensboro (a $300 value).
Licensed massage therapist Joel Tull has been mending much-used muscles for more than 30 years, and has shown off his skills at Olympic games and numerous World Track and Field Championships. Harnessing knowledge in Asian and European traditions, Tull grants private instruction for two people on performing massages on tense torsos and sluggish limbs. Study relaxation, sports-recovery, or pain-relief techniques at a comfortable pace while increasing finger stamina for tapping into muscular knots and sinewy sore spots, and relieving aches and pains caused by wrestling professors for their knowledge. Couples can also opt for two 2.5-hour lessons; for those looking to surprise a significant other or neighborhood librarian with a massage, skills can also be honed in lessons for single individuals.
Joel Tull’s experienced hands have massaged the knots out of professional dancers from the New York City Ballet and athletes at the Sydney Olympics. He sets up shop inside a cozy room with plenty of potted plants, and a fireplace that can be lit upon request. Joel’s vast knowledge in massage therapy is shared with the masses during workshops across the country and in Russia, Italy, Australia, and Mars.
