Overworked muscles can form painful knots, which is why so many construction workers give each other shoulder massages during their lunch breaks. Hammer out the hurt with this Groupon.
$40 for One 70-Minute Prenatal Massage ($95 Value)
The prenatal massage shares many of the same goals as a regular massage, with the added aim of relieving the strains of pregnancy. A trained therapist uses custom techniques to target soreness, relax tension, and increase the body’s mobility.
In their daily battle against stress, the massage therapists at Trees Bodyworks have a secret weapon: texture. They often enhance their strokes and pressures with exfoliating grains of sugar that soften calluses or silky oils that heal dry and itchy skin on the scalp. The studio’s clients can choose from a list of modalities that include both of the classics—Swedish and deep-tissue massage—as well as a specialty trigger therapy that targets muscles sore from chronic tension and pulling on the triggers of oversized novelty water guns.
