Like a potato, if the human body is not properly mashed and moisturized, it will never be used for anything more than a science-project battery. Make sure your body is properly fluffed and buttered with today's soothing Groupon: for $39, you get a 60-minute Zenya fusion massage with reflexology at Zenya Yoga & Massage Studio in Newport News (an $80 value).
Zenya Yoga & Massage's licensed therapist helps guests to achieve a better balance between mind and body with a menu of therapies that soothe achy musculature. The one-hour fusion massage uses rhythmic movements to alleviate sore yoga muscles and cramped backs caused by being stuck in human-size venus flytraps. As body tension unravels, invigorating scents of sandalwood, lavender, kava kava, and St. John's wort nourish nostrils with pleasant aromas. The reflexology add-on helps to improve circulation and balance by focusing on reflex points on the hands and feet, aiming to stimulate energies in related organs, glands, and body systems.
Zenya Yoga & Massage Studio
Soft waterfall lighting floods Zenya Yoga & Massage Studio's space, a holistic repository of all things relaxing. Light music skirts the earth-toned walls as a fleet of yogis guides students of all skill levels through a variety of yoga classes, including gentle flow, anusara and prenatal, using hands-on guidance to provide slight postural adjustments, easing beginners into complex poses, and ramping up the challenge for seasoned practitioners. Amber bamboo flooring meanders through the center, undergirding private rooms that house pampering body-therapy sessions that range from honey facials and body polishes to deep-tissue and Thai massage.
