Rolfing is a teaching from Ida P. Rolf, where deep, sustained pressure is applied throughout the entire body to manipulate fascia, a plastic-like webbing that covers and connects muscles. This aids in pain relief by aligning the body as a whole, rather than treating only the places that hurt. Unlike a traditional massage, in this treatment oil isn’t used; therapists perform focused pressure over gliding strokes. In addition, the first treatment typically begins with a period of observations from the rolfer to personalize the session based on the customer’s needs.

Couples massages don’t have to be with a romantic partner, but if you’re looking for one with your boo, Sparssh Massage is the place to go. Our deal features a 90-minute session where a therapist teaches couples to massage each other using various techniques. Each person in the couple will spend half the time learning the techniques and half the time lying on the massage table so you can take home new moves. Wine is served during the class, and each couple also gets a bottle of massage oil to continue the learning at home. At only $118, it’s the perfect gift for a birthday, anniversary, or just because.
