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 $45, you get a one-hour sports or relaxation massage at Ultimate Sports Massage, LLC (a $90 value). Founder of Ultimate Sports Massage Lori-Ann Gallant-Heilborn, an Olympic massage therapist during the 2004 and 2008 Games, staffs her practice with experienced massage therapists. Professional muscle menders personalize sessions, asking questions about exercise, repetitive strain, and stress over Pluto’s demotion from planet status. The sports massage addresses athletic demands, aiding in both injury prevention and recuperation, and the relaxation massage quiets stress with the promise of chocolate milk and a bedtime story.
Ultimate Sports Massage’s airy white-walled, wood-floored office sets a calming tone, and instructive anatomy charts, an American flag, and a cozy potted tree inspire inscrutable haikus about the relationship between life and tapestry.

Kristen, Rainee, and Karen, the team of trained professionals at Ultimate Sports Massage, know the strain sports can put on a body. They help prevent and heal sports-related injuries with their namesake specialty massage, which can be customized to address everything from lingering pain to lagging range of motion. In addition, they also prep athletes for competition with kinesio taping services, and mend game-sore bodies with the icy embrace of a cold plunge bath. The team also caters to non-athletes with relaxing traditional bodywork, soothing hot stone therapy, or Shivaki Thai massage—a blend of acupressure and yoga-like poses that helps reduce tension.
