The No-Risk Massage

Rub-downs may be relaxing, but booking them can be stressful.

Getting a massage may be relaxing, but booking one can be stressful. Do you need Thai or Swedish? Relaxation or rejuvenation? A lot of pressure or a little? How much should you pay? It's a good thing then that from September 20 to September 26 you can remove some of the risk by trying out half-price massages at top-shelf spas across the country. We suggest rub-down newbies go for a sports massage, like the one offered at the Humble Abode in West Hollywood. It's similar to a deep-tissue massage, but the kneading and pressure are concentrated on one sore or stressed area of the body—whichever part you say is ailing you. If you have a hurt knee or shoulder, or just spend all day hunched over a computer screen, it's ideal.
