For $25, you get a 30-minute massage at Victoria Massage Therapy, located downtown in the Yarrow Building on Fort Street.
A registered massage therapy clinic with therapists certified by The College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia, Victoria Massage Therapy treats an array of conditions. The 30-minute massage begins with orthopedic testing and postural analysis to identify the cause of patient discomfort, then moves to an arsenal of therapeutic, relaxation, and sport massages and services that incorporate techniques such as myofascial release, muscle energy technique, and trigger point release. Relaxing music, lighting, aromatherapy, and a TheraTherm moist heating pad plunge tensioned bodies into deep, abysmal layers of relaxation.
A special pillowing system allows pregnant women to safely and comfortably lay face down, significantly reducing stress on the lower back and abdomen. As a green company, all massage and aromatherapy oils are organic and locally produced, and only environmentally friendly cleaning products are used on treatment surfaces. The value of this Groupon may be used toward a 45-minute ($70), 60-minute ($85), or 90-minute ($120) massage.
