For centuries mankind has envied pizza dough and wondered how we too could be kneaded to relaxed, savory states without paying for the luxury of being escorted via wooden paddle to a Sicilian brick oven. Be pounded into the shape of relaxation with today's Groupon: for $27, you get a 60-minute relaxation massage at Verity Life Massage Therapy (a $55 value) in downtown Lansing.
Verity Life Massage Therapy kneads tension out of overworked backs, relaxing muscles and reducing stress for busy clients. Each 60-minute relaxation massage takes place in a comfortable, quiet, and email-free room—a sanctuary amid downtown's bustle. Using the broad, flowing strokes of Swedish massage, massage technicians relieve stiffness and drain away tension, increasing pressure and intensity on trouble spots and achy muscles to smooth out knots and mollify vestigial dorsal fins. The one-hour massage brings backs, necks, and shoulders to a state of profound peace, allowing sneaky purses and heavy backpacks to hitchhike a ride home without the slightest spinal twinge of complaint.
