Like portrait painting, massage demands skillful hands, bold strokes, and a subject who can sit still. Become a human canvas with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a one-hour Swedish, deep-tissue, or aromatherapy massage at Therapeutic Massage (a $60 value).
The relaxation experts at Therapeutic Massage invite weathered passersby to unload their day-to-day stresses with a variety of massages that mend sore muscles. During each 60-minute kneading session, dexterous hands dote upon aching fibers, manipulating dorsal extremities to diffuse tension like Judge Judy's timeout chair. The Swedish massage's long, flowing strokes intersperse with gentle kneads and fast-paced tapping to boost circulation and untie stubborn knots. For more resistant strains of muscle discomfort, the deep-tissue massage administers firm pressure into the sublayers of fascia to increase flexibility, provide a larger range of motion, and decrease painful nodes. During aromatherapy sessions, essential oils glide strokes along backs and seep deep into skin to enhance relaxation, reduce headaches, and enable the ability to slip out of awkwardly long hugs.
