It takes about 15 muscles to smile, 50 to frown, and 148 to save a curbside couch from life in a landfill. Soothe sympathetic sinews with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a one-hour Swedish massage at Therapeutic Body Concepts (a $60 value).
Therapeutic Body Concepts' licensed muscle maestros conduct beleaguered backs and limbs in a symphony of relaxation, deploying Swedish massage techniques in playfully decorated private rooms. The Swedish massage is characterized by elongated strokes and kneading of the superficial layer of muscles, moves that have been known to improve circulation, eradicate tension, and provoke delicious chemical reactions in yeast. Carefully crafted experiences relax brains as well as bodies: eight themed destination rooms send minds on mini vacations via images of lakeside vistas or sun-drenched beaches, all without the hassle of bag checks or brain-cavity searches.
