Besides alleviating aches and pains, massage also centers the mind, which helps recipients see their place in the universe and the volcano where they accidentally dropped their car keys. Sift through mental magma with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get a 70-minute massage at Lakeside Day Spa in Middlefield (a $105 value).
The wellness experts at Lakeside Day Spa welcome guests to a French-style country cottage set on the shore of Beseck Lake. After sampling accouterments including complimentary coconut-ginger tea, homemade cookies, or apple cider from Lyman Orchards, spa-goers swan dive onto a heated massage table so therapists may apply one of four modalities. Swedish massage employs five types of long, flowing strokes for meticulous mitigation, and deep-tissue massage delves deeper into connective tissues to relieve more severe soreness. Guests can also opt for the performance-enhancing sports massage, or savor relaxing sniffs such as lavender or new-car smell during an aromatherapy massage. After melting into willowy bliss, patrons can stroll along the lake and admire banks and admire the tree-lined banks.
Lakeside Day Spa
Set on the shore of Beseck Lake, the French-style country cottage housing Lakeside Day Spa is a relaxing place for guests to visit for massages, skincare services, and whole-body treatments. Fresh linens drape over the heated massage tables where therapists pamper guests with six massage modalities. Guests may also rejuvenate their largest organ with facials, masks, and body wraps or partake in 30-minute infrared-sauna sessions designed to help bodies burn up to 600 calories, increase blood circulation, and develop mind-reading mutant powers. Before, between, or after services, guests may enjoy complimentary coconut tea, apple cider, and homemade cookies while lounging in the lake house, which features elegant furnishings and panoramic views of the lake.
