Like Hawaii, relaxation can be a challenging state to reach. Ensnare elusive serenity with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a trigger-point therapy session at The Pain Treatment & Wellness Center (a $75 value). This Groupon is valid at The Pain Treatment and Wellness Center's two locations in Pittsburgh and Greensburg.
Board-certified myofascial trigger-point therapist Jeffrey A. Lutz soothes chronic muscle pain with dexterous fingers and myofascial trigger-point release techniques. This therapy targets muscular trigger points, which send pain signals to other areas, and can relieve discomfort caused by a variety of conditions, including headaches, fibromyalgia, face and jaw pain, and Hulk Hogan piggyback rides. With your consent, the Wellness Center will also coordinate with each patient's primary physician to customize treatment in order to address problem areas. Each session lasts approximately one hour and aids in more than pain relief; muscle tenderness and joint stiffness decrease and the patient's range of movement can widen, allowing them to reach the Great American Novel manuscript that fell under the couch. Groupon holders also receive a $15 discount on a follow-up appointment.
The Pain Treatment & Wellness Center
The massage therapists at The Pain Treatment & Wellness Center listen closely to patients' descriptions of aches and pains and use these reports to build personalized treatments. During bodywork sessions, therapists begin by adjusting environmental factors—music, lighting, and trade winds—to create a space that's completely free of stress factors. They go on to customize the style and pressure of each touch, rooting out pain as clients sprawl on heated tables with scentless linens. The lead therapist specializes in sports therapy, which helps athletes optimize their performance, and works alongside other therapists who practice deep-tissue, Swedish, pregnancy, myofascial trigger-point therapy, and other modalities. The Pain Treatment & Wellness Center also offers cosmetic services and treatments including skin care, facials, waxing, and microdermabrasion.
