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 $22, you get a personalized massage at Unearth the Power, valid at the Knoxville and Clinton locations (a $45 value). Groupon customers can upgrade to aromatherapy for an extra fee of $5.
At Unearth the Power, licensed therapist Rick Verastegui coaxes coiled fibers into a state of relaxation with personalized massage treatments. Each one-hour session integrates a variety of techniques tailored to the client's needs. Using nimble fingers to electric slide across epidermal dance floors, Rick upstages sore muscles and taut minds. Patients can opt to upgrade to an aromatherapy session, which inspirits the olfactory faculties and relieves trapped sniffs. A complimentary bottle of purified water quells post-treatment thirsts and helps to flush toxins released during massages. Earth-toned walls splashed with tempered lighting frame a private treatment room where guests can absorb artwork or perfect batting stances in a horizontal mirror.
Unearth the Power
Rick Verastegui is a jack-of-all-trades. As a kid, Rick could be spotted marching around his yard holding a trashcan above his head, imitating either bodybuilder Charles Atlas or the neighborhood's most muscular garbage man. Although he eventually set the trashcan down, Rick never lost his passion for health. He carried that into adolescence and adulthood, earning a black belt in karate, playing football, and becoming a certified personal trainer.
In between all of that, Rick found time to earn his master's degree in business, plus degrees in Spanish, government, and economics—all of which he taught at some point. Still, fitness remained an integral part of his life. Rick expanded on his already lengthy resumé by becoming a nationally certified massage therapist, a skill he practices extensively at Unearth the Power. Rick also provides weight-training, stretching, and bodywork services, all while using his diverse background to connect with clients.
