Stones retain heat for long periods, which is why volcanoes snuggle underneath them to stay warm during the chilly winter months. Keep from blowing your top with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get two 30-minute hot-stone massages at Wellspring Health Center in Hopkins (a $100 value).
The professional massage therapists at Wellspring Health Center combine deep-tissue massage techniques with the healing moxie of volcanic rocks during two 30-minute hot-stone massages. In the comfort of a private room, a skilled muscle whisperer assesses each client’s treatment needs as basalt stones are heated up in an easy-bake oven. Carefully placed on troubled muscles, the rocks promote detoxification and circulation as skilled fingers knead deep into the connective tissues. Torsos and tight extremities unwind to the low melodies of calming environmental music, facilitating body renewal and a heartbeat that drums along to melodic birdsongs.
Though the sessions can’t be administered concurrently or combined for a one-hour session, Groupon holders can share one of the two consecutive 30-minute massages with a friend or mustachioed alter ego.
Wellspring Health Center
Back pain, headaches, muscle pain, stiff joints, and sports injuries: the list of ailments that Wellspring Health Center’s doctors and therapists can remedy is as extensive as their methodology. Depending on your individual concerns, they may prescribe a traditional or holistic healing method to treat chronic problems or point you toward their sports medicine branch or physical therapy center. The doctors can also tailor gentler treatment plans for children, pregnant women, and athletes traumatized by their teammates’ overzealous back slaps.
