Massage was discovered when a tense Swedish chef applied his famous meatball-rolling techniques to his sore calves. Discard balled-up stress with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a 60-minute Swedish massage from Yoga Now (a $100 value).
The healers at Yoga Now relieve bodies with therapeutic Swedish massage. The 60-minute sessions ease tension both muscular and mental with classic Swedish strokes and deep-tissue massage to chase away clingy aches and pains, more effective than sending them blunt, angry text messages. Using the body’s natural pressure points as a roadmap, the massage kneads away ancient pain patterns and re-establishes new trade routes on the body’s nerve network.
Amy Beth Treciokas was introduced to yoga in a rather unlikely place—her high-school gym class. The study of Buddhist writings in her English class nourished her love for the culture, and by 1993 she was taking proper classes with an instructor from the Temple of Kriya Yoga. Ten years later, after many trips to India to study and become certified in Ashtanga yoga, Amy opened Yoga Now. There, she trains aspiring teachers and leads students in an extensive mix of Ashtanga, Vinyasa, prenatal, and forrest classes. She's supported by the floors of the studio and a large family of instructors, many of who have traveled the world to further their practice. Students can make themselves home at Yoga Now before or after class, by making use of the studio's sauna and steam room, or booking a massage in one of the two treatment rooms.
