Before massage therapy, muscle relaxation involved an invasive procedure in which surgeons supplied each of the patient's blood cells with a tiny saxophone in order to infuse fibrous tissue with jazz music. Find a smoother flow with today's Groupon: for $27, you get a one-hour relaxation massage at Wellness Connections in Fulton (a $55 value).
During a 60-minute relaxation massage, Wellness Connections' muscle menders vie for merit badges in untying knots as they stimulate circulation and clear away stress from head to toe with a full-body barrage of calming techniques. Following a soothing rubdown, customers are free to slip into the rolling waters of a hot tub or clear pores in a sauna for 20 minutes. For an additional fee, clients can elect an upgraded tissue tranquilizing such as a deep-relaxation treatment or hot-stone massage that embraces back muscles with a litter of warm, cuddly pet rocks.
