Take time to Relax … You live in Cooper-Young
Like many of you, the holidays are something I look forward to for most of the year. But the same season that brings us so much joy can also come with a dose of stress when factoring in the frenetic holiday schedule, struggling through the throngs of holiday shoppers, forcing a smile as you force down Aunt Mabel’s fruit cake, crossing off every person on your gifting list, and getting that last holiday card in the mail before it’s too late.
Members of the Cooper-Young Community Association have an extra incentive to treat themselves to one appointment that will offset the stress and help them coast peacefully through the holiday season: discounts on therapeutic massage services. Midtown Massage & Bodywork at 885 S. Cooper offers CYCA members a 10 percent discount on services every time the membership card is presented.
Larrie Ann Rodriguez, owner of Midtown Massage & Bodywork, said that most of the therapists there live in Cooper-Young, “and all of us work and play in Cooper-Young.” This was the catalyst for their decision to be a membership sponsor for the CYCA. “We wanted to give back a little by offering a 10 percent discount on our massage services to [CYCA] members. Cooper-Young is ‘historically hip’ with thriving businesses and a strong sense of community. That, combined with the Southern hospitality, makes for a great place to do business. We sit on our porch every day and feel a sense of community that is sometimes difficult to capture these days.”
If you’ve never had a massage and are not sure if it’s right for you, Larrie Ann assures, “People of all ages, lifestyles, and professions come to us to help release stress and tension, relieve pain and soreness, stimulate the flow of energy, and improve flexibility and strength. Our talented therapists provide a variety of techniques such as therapeutic massage, Thai bodywork, ashiastu barefoot massage, neuromuscular therapy, and therapeutic yoga instruction.”
Appointments at Midtown Massage & Bodywork can be made by phone at 596-3838 or online at www.midtown-massage.com.
And if you are looking for holiday gift ideas, Midtown Massage & Bodywork offers gift certificates for purchase inside the studio and online. Remember to support neighborhood businesses this holiday season including the many membership sponsors who offer CYCA members discounts during the membership year. Also, consider buying a Cooper-Young history book or a CYCA membership for a neighbor, and share all the special things happening in our neighborhood. Renewing your own membership for 2013 will enable these discounts for another full year, including the 10 percent discount at Midtown Massage & Bodywork every time you visit. Have a happy and safe holiday season and remember: Life is good in Cooper-Young!
