Liverpool Even when it’s not snowing, wintertime can be stressful.
Heating costs are high. Road salt eats away at your car. Your boots leak. You misplace your scarf. Income taxes come due. Potholes pop up everywhere. And you can no longer buy a fast-food burger in the village.
But as an anonymous wise man once observed, “Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.”
Here’s an idea. Start your spring cleaning early and gather together a cache of old jewelry, a few ounces of gold or tarnished silverware and maybe that trumpet you haven’t blown since high school and take it all down to Dan Stenham at We Buy, right smack dab in the center of the village at 612 Oswego St. at the corner of Tulip; 565-5700.
With the money Dan gives you for your vintage valuables, you can afford a relaxing massage.
Licensed massage therapist Brian Gruninger has set up shop at the Studio 304 salon, at 304 First St., in the Village Mall, at the corner of Vine and First streets. Brian offers a standard full-body massage with oils etc., but also he also performs Swedish chair massages in which the client is clothed and seated in a specially designed chair.
And here’s a deal: you can try it out for $1 for one minute of chair massage.
Brian’s offering a special introductory rate of 20 percent off a $60 full massage.
For info, visit brianglmt.massagetherapy.com/, or call Brian at 935-4127.
First Street’s turning onto a New Age avenue what with the Yoga Center and Entirely You at the east end and Studio 304 at Vine Street to the west.
In between there’s OmBoys Juice & Smoothie Café, at 137 First St., operated by Todd and Michelle Brundage.
