Before massages, muscles attempted to relax using highly unreliable methods, such as hypnosis or listening to continuous loops of Yanni songs. Achieve muscular harmony with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a one-hour Swedish massage and 10-minute aroma treatment from Time Out Mobile Massage Therapy (a $110 total value). This Groupon is valid within a 20-mile radius of Syracuse.
Boasting an extensive background of athletic and massage therapy, Time Out Mobile Massage's Robert Bill pampers clients with Swedish massages and aromatherapy treatments in their own homes or offices. The relaxation guru arrives toting the massage table, linens, and oils necessary to conjure up comfort and assuage taut muscles with the flowing strokes of a one-hour Swedish massage (an $85 value), tailored to gently knead out tension, chronic aches, and subcutaneous biscuit dough. The client's choice of one of three therapeutic aroma treatments (a $25 value) melts stress for an additional 10 minutes. Employing hot towels and refreshing aromatherapy, the sinus-relief option cleanses clogged sinuses, and a migraine-relief treatment involves focused breathing in a darkened room. The final add-on option targets carpal-tunnel-syndrome symptoms with alternating applications of ice and heat with salves, meant to soothe forearms, wrists, and hands and ready them for hours of enthusiastic handshakes or speed-typing contests.
Although Time Out Mobile Massage occasionally offers specials, this Groupon still offers the best available deal.
