It takes about 15 muscles to smile, 50 to frown, and 148 to save a curbside couch from life in a landfill. Soothe sympathetic sinews with today's Groupon: for $55, you get a 75-minute Ashiatsu Oriental bar massage with extended hydrotherapy from Your Back Whisperer (a $110 value).
Your Back Whisperer's licensed massage captain Michelle Capierseo mollifies muscles using centuries-old Ashiatsu foot-massaging techniques. Customers stretch out on heated massage tables for a preliminary hydrotherapy and hot-stone session, during which moist heat packs and smooth stones soothe rigid muscles. A barefoot Ashiatsu therapist then grips an overhead bar for balance as she treads on the back. Flowing foot strokes and firm pressure from opposable big toes loosen restricted soft tissues and increase blood flow. The Ashiatsu session aims to instill lasting relaxation and heal muscles tense from accumulated stress.
