Without spas, terrycloth bathrobes would have to make ends meet by taking part-time jobs as car-wash rags and Muppets. Help keep bathwear gainfully employed with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get a chocolate-peppermint-massage package from Laura DiCesare at Blu Water Medi Spa Salon in Monroe, Michigan (a $100 value). The package includes:

- Hot-towel wrap (a $10 value)
- Chocolate and peppermint refreshments (a $5 value)<p>
At Blu Water Medi Spa Salon, guests leave their cares, worries, and mobile phones behind and enter a sanctuary teeming with soft robes and soothing candlelight. The 60-minute therapeutic massage conforms to specific back needs, dispatching soothing strokes across musculature, stimulating the circulatory and nervous systems to assist the release of pent-up tension and penning strongly worded eviction notices to squatting stress knots. As the therapist kneads body dough, pleasing whiffs of cool chocolate-peppermint aromatherapy waft through the air to create a cocoa-and-candy-cane-inspired surprise party for olfactory nerves. To complement the cooling scents, a hot steamed towel infused with oil helps soften muscles to make them more malleable and relaxed. A mug of steaming cocoa or a latte—stirred delicately with a melting peppermint stick—and peppermint patty round out the experience, giving guests something to leisurely sip on or balance atop one finger to induce expressions of awe in neighboring spa dwellers.
