Getting a massage relaxes the mind and eases muscle tension, in the same way that taking a calculus exam during a boxing match does not. Steer clear of pugilistic mind-benders with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a 60-minute Swedish massage at Trendz Nail Design Studio (a $60 value).
Relaxation prevails at Trendz Nail Design Studio, where a licensed massage therapist jumps into the tangle of tendons to release tension and prevent looming aches and pains with time-tested massage modalities. During a 60-minute Swedish massage, healing hands pair gliding strokes and robust kneads for a full-body, medium-pressure massage designed to kick-start circulation and shepherd clients on the road to wellness. Ideal for relieving pent-up stress and tendon tension, Swedish massage may also help clients by improving muscle tone and rousing joy-boosting serotonin levels that tend to diminish during the winter due to lack of sunshine or the jeering taunts of judgmental snowmen. Dim lamps flood across a cozy waiting area, where a homespun milieu facilitates premassage leisure with complimentary beverages, floral accents, and plush vinyl chairs.
Trendz Nail Design Studio
The masterful nail technicians at TrendZ Nail Design Studio pamper hands and feet with nail services conducted in semiprivate rooms, maintaining a clean and sterile environment with a pipe-free system of pedicure bowls. In addition to specialized menus just for men and girls aged 4–13, the spa offers waxing treatments that gently swipe away hair for bathing-suit-ready bodies. Unique variations such as the jelly pedicure spruce up classic treatments, freshening dull feet with moisturizing cream, softening aches with massages, and wrestling Twizzlers from clenched toes. When they aren’t busy filing away at cuticles or fortifying fingernails with gel polish, the salon’s staff fills glasses with beverages such as wine to induce further relaxation.
