Like a potato, if the human body is not properly mashed and moisturized, it will never be used for anything more than a science-project battery. Make sure your body is properly fluffed and buttered with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of massage services at Under My Thumb Therapy.
Jody Rowley wields experienced fingers over crimped spines with soothing massage, trigger-point therapy, myofascial release, and stretches to balance the body and mind. During a massage session, turbulent muscles turn placid as Jody subdues knots and offers gentle instructions. The 60-minute Swedish massage ($50) addresses pain all over the body, moving all the way to the hands and feet with broad, flowing strokes that calm the nervous system and relax exterior muscle tension. Gradually increasing pressure on specific areas relieves muscular tension and locates any unwanted alien microchips. Often, a light oil or lotion is used to promote hydration and facilitate fingers' smooth sailing across the skin. Afterward, Jody encourages clients to drink plenty of water to flush out toxins and facilitate the body's starfish-like ability to heal itself. Other massage options include the 60-minute integrated massage ($60), the 60-minute back-and-neck massage ($50), and the 60-minute hot-stone massage ($65). Jody also offers chair massages ($1/minute) for special events and businesses.
