In a recent European knead-off, the Swedish massage retained its muscle-mashing dominance over the pinching-centric Estonian massage and the Lithuanian potato massage. Indulge your love for all things first place with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a choice of a Swedish massage, a custom facial, or four Zumba, yoga, or Pilates classes at Uzima Springs Massage & Wellness in Knightdale, up to a $75 value. This Groupon includes an expert consultation (a $15 value) with all options.
A one-stop wellness shop, Uzima specializes in treatments customized to meet clients' specific needs. If environmental dirt and grime have left your skin in need of some sprucing, opt for the custom facial ($55), a personalized skin treatment that uses your choice of organic and natural products and packs an hour's worth of rejuvenation into 55 minutes. If soothing sore sinews is more appealing, the 60-minute Swedish massage ($60), a light- to medium-pressured technique, is the most popular type of knead. It uses a combination of long connective strokes and kneading, gliding, and rhythmic tapping to improve blood flow, stimulate the lymphatic system, melt stress, and soothe muscles bashed by everyday life or intense underwater paintball tournaments. Only new clients can choose the massage.
The Zumba classes, part of the Columbian dance fitness program, combine classic Latin dance moves, interval training, and resistance training into a quick-paced, calorie-burning fun fitness regimen. The yoga or Pilates classes let you triangle pose and dart your way to flexibility and muscle tone.
Led by physical therapist Miriam Loughry and massage practitioner Maryanne Kamau, who have nearly 30 years of combined experience, Uzima can custom cater to your preferred experience. Get your Groupon whether you're looking to glimpse inner peace, de-gunk pores, pick up a new hobby, or melt into a puddle of papier-mâché.
The massage option is valid for new clients only.
- Maryanne has the ability to locate and relieve problem areas, without me even telling her about them. She provides a comprehensive combination of stress relief, pain elimination, and total relaxation that I have not experienced from any other therapist. – James A. Farhman, client
Uzima Springs Massage & Wellness
At Uzima Springs Massage & Wellness, licensed massage therapists counter chronic pain, injuries, and stress with nine styles of massage. Since the staff knows that many clients are seeking relief from specific ailments, they begin each session with a private consultation, during which the client can describe the location of their pain and relate the exact words from the Necronomicon that precipitated its development. Once they've established the most pressing concerns, the therapists adapt each modality so that it focuses on these trouble spots, modifying the thera-cupping technique to treat a strained hamstring or the medical massage to relieve an achy back.
