$79 for Two 60-Minute Massages (Up to $170 Value)

Clients can choose from a list of modalities, including myofascial release, reiki, deep tissue, Swedish, and acupressure.

On Balance Massage and Bodywork

Informed by fitness-heavy interests, including competitive bicycling, jogging, and research in sports injury and recovery, the licensed massage therapists at On Balance Massage and Bodywork draw upon their massage training to relieve injury and pain. They treat clients ranging from athletes to chronic-pain sufferers with massage modalities such as myofascial release, which targets pain with gentle, sustained pressure on the connective tissues. They also practice deep-tissue massage, which involves the sublayer manipulation of muscles to reduce inflammation-related pain and locate embedded spinach cans. For bodies tense from work or minds reeling from stress, therapists pore over musculatures with relaxing Swedish, hot-stone, and reiki techniques.

$9 for Two Hours of Indoor Playtime (up to a $18 Value)

Bouncers of all ages expend excess energy on massive trampoline courts to the beat of upbeat music in a bright, air-conditioned arena.

_Great Jump Sports offers special discounts during limited hours throughout the week. Check the site for more details.

Great Jump Sports

A referee stands guard over Great Jump Sports’ designated trampoline dodge-ball court, as teams soar through the air in graceful arcs and rebound off the walls. The fast-paced game reflects Great Jump Sports' mission to refresh workout routines. In doing so, the staff keeps upbeat music pouring out of the sound system, and welcomes fitness clubs to hold classes in the arena.

Though the arena fosters a jovial environment, safety is paramount. Padding covers all hard surfaces, and vertical walls and netting prevent spills. Staffers keep the vast arena well ventilated and air-conditioned, and use all-natural, scent-free disinfectants. They also supply all jumpers with skid-free socks for safe landings.

Once patrons have expended energy reserves and perfected their meteor impersonations, they can head to the arcade or settle in at Great Jump Sports' café, where chefs bake pizzas in a brick oven and arrange fruit and veggie platters for up to 12 people.

Diablo Auto Polishing

Human fingers and orbital buffers. Q-tips and compressed air. Miniscule brushes and robust vacuums. These are just a few of the tools Diablo Auto Polishing's technicians use to coax filth from crevices, grilles, consoles, and vents, replacing grime with a fresh sparkle. Whether they're working out of their facility or from their mobile truck, they exhibit this painstaking attention to detail during services such as layering wax on top of just-buffed paints for a like-new luster and infusing floorboards and seats with stain-lifting shampoos. Aside from their four-tiered detail packages, the technicians also restore headlights and fix dents with an organic process that forgoes the use of paint additives or junkyard donors.

One Large Pizza with an Appetizer or One Large Pizza with Beer & Wings at Straw Hat Pizza in Milpitas (Up to 52% Off)

Pizza, much like the earth, is circular, flat, and supports the existence of Karl Malone. Enjoy something that always delivers with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $12 for one large pizza with up to three toppings (up to a $19.19 value) and any appetizer (up to a $5.99 value; up to a $25.18 total value)
  • $17 for a pizza package for four people, which includes one large pizza with up to four toppings (up to a $20.70 value), any pitcher of beer (up to a $9.99 value), and any six-piece hot wings (up to a $4.49 value; up to a $35.27 total value)

Straw Hat Pizza

In 1959, Straw Hat created the very first California pizza crust. Different from any other crust at the time, the layered, flaky bread crunched like a cracker and carried Straw Hat's signature sauce to mouths with ease. More than 50 years later, this recipe for hearty, flavorful pizzas has changed very little. But while Straw Hats' pizza twirlers still cover their crispy dough in a secret sauce, their menu has expanded to included hot wings, hot sandwiches, and a slew of beers. Diners can also pick and choose from the salad bar, which previously existed only in pizza-parlor legend. Straw Hat's locations often boast high-definition TVs, video arcades, and play places for children.

Three or Six Zerona Body-Sculpting Treatments at Calistoga Massage & Chiropractic Center in Santa Rosa (Up to 75% Off)

Three or Six Zerona Body-Sculpting Treatments at Calistoga Massage & Chiropractic Center in Santa Rosa (Up to 75% Off)

Although euphemisms like "saddlebag" and "love handle" make it easier to talk about body fat, they also make it easier to imagine a world in which humans are ridden like horses. Trim the fat with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

In 40-minute sessions, non-invasive low-level lasers seep beneath the skin on the body's trouble spots, such as the abs, love handles, and thighs. The laser energy disrupts fat cells' membranes, prompting them to release their fatty acids, which the body then flushes out via the lymphatic system or burns for energy. Two weeks of treatment, with three sessions conducted per week, tend to produce the best results.

Calistoga Massage & Chiropractic Center

Calistoga Massage & Chiropractic Center is a chiropractic practice, massage center, massage school, and weight-loss clinic all in one. Its founder, doctor of chiropractic Steven Ticen, has tended to patients for nearly a third of a century with services that run the gamut from chiropractic care and Zerona body contouring to hot-stone massage and spa facials. He employs a number of graduates from his attached massage-therapy school, which teaches students a signature technique, the Calistoga massage—a firm, Swedish–style massage that relieves tension and cures the phobia of other people's fingers.

Two Hours of Bowling and Shoe Rental for Two or Four at AMF Bowling Centers (Up to 64% Off). 2 Locations Available.

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012
Two Hours of Bowling and Shoe Rental for Two or Four at AMF Bowling Centers (Up to 64% Off). 2 Locations Available.

Bowling is better with friends, as you have someone there to talk to between turns and to watch your back when pins decide they've had enough. Bring some backup with today's Groupon to AMF Bowling Centers, valid at the Milpitas and Santa Clara locations. Choose between the following options:

  • For $15, you get two hours of bowling and shoe rental for two people (a $42.06 average national value based on two people bowling four games each in two hours).
  • For $25, you get two hours of bowling and shoe rental for four people (a $67.32 average national value based on four people bowling three games each in two hours).

Gleaming lanes, modern equipment, and tempting refreshments satisfy every stripe of striker at AMF Bowling Centers. Patrons spend two revolutions of the minute hand gracefully lobbing three-holed marbles at stoic ivory formations as automatic scoring systems and pin-spotters free fingers for celebratory handstands. Pairs of bowlers young and old compete to pick up strike- and spare-hitchhikers with an appropriately weighted ball from the center's stable of spheres. Before beginning the pin bombardment, players don the included rental shoes, ensuring their homemade bowling cleats don’t scratch polished surfaces.

Players can curb game-induced cravings with a selection from the wings, pizza, and burgers available at the on-site grill (not included with this Groupon). Most AMF locations stay open late into the night for tenpin diehards to practice and sleep-bowlers to actually bowl instead of rooting through refrigerators to throw cantaloupes at milk cartons; check your preferred location for specific hours.

Values for this deal are based upon averages of participating national locations and may vary. Call your local center for pricing.

Seven-Night Stay in Executive Houseboat on Shasta Lake from Silverthorn Resort in Redding ($2,990 Value)

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012
Seven-Night Stay in Executive Houseboat on Shasta Lake from Silverthorn Resort in Redding ($2,990 Value)

Since the dawn of humanity, man has longed to conquer the ocean, which is why the invention of the boat was followed swiftly by the adoption of the high-five. Celebrate man's triumphs with this Groupon.

$1,495, for a Seven-Night Stay on an Executive Houseboat for up to 10 People (a $2,990 value)

On the deck of a Silverthorn Resort Executive houseboat, nautical residents drift amid Shasta Lake’s pristine, mountain-lined waters. The spacious boats boast enough sleeping room for up to 10 people or four President Taft wax statues, with a barbecue-patio foredeck, two bathrooms, and a fully equipped kitchen. On the top deck, a water slide sends thrill-seekers plunging into the cool, watery expanse of Shasta Lake.

Though Silverthorn Resort sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

Silverthorn Resort

Silverthorn Resort traces its history back to August 1, 1853, when settler George Silverthorn and his wife, Lucy, a native Wintu woman, established one of Northern California's first ferries across the Pit River. The Silverthorn's descendants stayed in the area to the present day, watching the river age and mature into a strapping, full-grown lake with more than 375 miles of shoreline dotted with picturesque docks and cabins. A marina outfitted with a pro shop and general store refills ships and pantries with needed supplies, and a pizza pub refuels visitors with the daily recommended allowance of pizza, live music, and cold beer.

Houseboats glide across Shasta Lake's calm waters, where vacationing anglers can fish for trout, salmon, and bass. The 40,000-acre lake allows plenty of room for wakeboarding, tubing, and other watersports. Around the lake, a network of trails wends hikers and cyclists across the Shasta-Trinity National Forest, where Mount Shasta stands about 50 miles north of the lake.
