Just like celebrities, muscles demand regular attention to prevent them from pitching public fits and punching intrusive cameramen. Be your muscles’ biggest fan with today’s Groupon: for $55, you get a massage package (up to a $110 value) at Wicked Awesome Massage. The package includes:
- A 60-minute Swedish or deep-tissue massage (up to a $70 value)
- A 30-minute reiki or reflexology treatment (a $40 value)<p>
The massage therapists at Wicked Awesome Massage customize their soothing sessions to the relaxation and wellness needs of each client’s organ capsule. During Swedish massages, muscle mavens use oils or lotions to render gliding strokes, kneading, friction, and occasional tapping movements to ease muscle tautness and send morse-coded messages of calm. Firm but gentle pressure makes the Swedish style ideal for massage newbies, whereas deep-tissue methods utilize more intense pressure to target deeper muscles, help alleviate chronic tension, and break up scar tissue. Like a heated argument over whose turn it is to bathe the cat, some temporary soreness may result.
Wicked Awesome’s tranquil nature-themed décor and muted lighting also provide an ideal setting for showing off glow-in-the-dark contact lenses or treating bodies to a reiki or reflexology treatment. A reiki practitioner uses his or her hands as tools that attempt to affect the body’s energy and promote healing, or a reflexology session aims to enhance wellness in various body areas by applying pressure to specific points on the feet and hands.
Though Wicked Awesome Massage sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
