Give the neighborhood oak tree a much-deserved break from the damaging abuse of Baloo-style backrubs by putting the fleshy branches of human hands in charge of your relaxation with today's Groupon: For $20, you get a 60-minute relaxation or Swedish massage at The Massage Spa (a $44 value) in St. Petersburg.
Inside the clean and cozy alcove of The Massage Spa, visitors are whisked to the zone past the angels of mountain goats to the very peak of cloud tops. Post-appointment, continue getting comfortable with a beverage or a snack before you leave. An expert massage therapist will pilot with the supple hands of experience. The Swedish massage consists of a series of long, precise strokes under firm pressure. The aim is to improve blood circulation, relieve tensions, and re-flex flexibilities. Or try the soothing relaxation technique. Not meant to specifically relieve muscular discomfort, this approach focuses on relaxing and jellifying the recipient. Gentle manipulation and medium pressure promote muscle-into-butter transformation, which subsequently frees the mind from the worrywarts and carebears that dominate the human consciousness.
