People are like tightropes: the longer they have to hold on to tension, the more likely they are to snap the next time they get stepped on by a monkey in a cowboy hat. Relax a high-strung physique with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get a full-body scrub (a $60 value) with hot oils (a $10 value) and combination massage (a $60 value) at Oasis Thai Massage & Spa (a $130 total value). This Groupon is valid at the locations in Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, and Redondo Beach.
Oasis Thai Massage & Spa incorporates characteristics of popular massage techniques with traditional Thai methods to deliver whole-body relaxation. The body scrub kicks off the rejuvenating session by exfoliating dead skin cells, then relaxes bodies with hot essential oils that double as a source of aromatherapy. As the oils seep in and hydrate skin canvases, the procedure seamlessly switches gears to the combination massage. The massage therapist’s appendages execute routines sourced from traditional Thai, Swedish, and deep-tissue massage. The hybrid mishmash of techniques also incorporates aspects of acupressure, passive yoga therapy, and reflexology to help clients restore their energy and attain the ability to scratch any part of their back with their mind.
By default, patients lie on a floor-based futon mat throughout the 70-minute procedure to stay true to the Thai-massage method, but they can opt to undergo the services while atop a standard, elevated massage table or while levitating above a vat of fragrant mushroom and broccoli soup. Thai-inspired artwork adorns private massage rooms and common areas in Oasis’s facility.
