Like house parties, massages give people an excuse to forget about everyday stresses and fall asleep on someone else's table. Attend a fettle-ready fiesta with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a one-hour Swedish massage (a $70 value) with aromatherapy (a $10 value) at Tranquility Therapeutic Massage in Wilmington (an $80 total value).
The body-twisting team at Tranquility Therapeutic Massage pursues and perfects massage-therapy techniques with soothing treatments focused on each client's unique needs. Personages lie prone atop a soft bed draped in a clean, cozy sheet as the one-hour tenderizing begins. Like a reformed bantam-weight boxer, Swedish massage packs a peaceful one-two punch, melding both trigger-point massage and full-body relaxation to tranquilly repair stress, muscle stiffness, and sputtering circulation. To further knead-based harmony, the relaxation expert unleashes aromatherapeutic accents with a swirl of essential oils, inducing olfactory-based relaxation and the sensation of floating in a hot tub full of fresh apple pie. De-tensed clients note a slew of possible benefits after a one-hour treatment, including amped digestion, boosted flexibility, and muted muscle aches.
Tranquility Therapeutic Massage
Spending a decade in an office setting takes a toll on the body. In addition to the stresses that come with memorizing all the birthdays of management's pets, bodies are affected by sitting in an office chair for hours on end and staring at a computer screen all day. Amber Dagata finally had enough of this harsh environment after 10 years of working as an office manager and bookkeeper. In 2008, she opened a massage studio, Tranquility Therapeutic Massage, to help others combat their work- and life-related tension.
Customizing each session to a client's particular sore spots is just one way Amber and her staff cater to clientele. They also perform massages for the full length of time, without subtracting the time it takes for a client to complete forms or to take off his or her clothes. Their menu of add-ons includes hot stones, which send warmth into aching muscles, and paraffin waxes, which soothe and soften hands and feet.
