Stress can creep up on you throughout the day, like the falcon that you keep forgetting is tethered to your arm. Let tension fly free with this Groupon.
$35 for One Week of Unlimited Automated Spa Treatments (Up to $624 Value)
With the touch of a button, bodies bask in an arsenal of automated beauty treatments, such as the Luminous facial, which aims to reduce fine lines and even skin tone with light therapy, and the hydro-massage bed, which lets guests relax fully clothed while jets of warm water ease muscle tension. The Hydro-Derma Fusion device combines infrared heat and a nutrient-rich steam that leaves skin balanced and supple, like a seesaw made of rubber. Guests can also burn up to 500 calories while lounging in the space-age sauna that is the Slim Capsule.
Clients choose up to two spa services and one of the following per day: red-light therapy anti-aging capsule, UV tanning, or Mystic spray tan.
Planet Beach Contempo Spa
Stephen Smith, the literal wizard behind the figurative curtain at Planet Beach Contempo Spa, has developed a variety of efficient, self-guided treatments that beautify skin or relieve stress at the touch of a button. Patrons can pay an affordable monthly membership fee at four Miami-area locations to access the automated services, which include sunless spray tans, traditional or high-pressure UV tanning, and full-body hydration treatments that nourish skin and can extend the life of a tan. The Luminous facial device has been designed to fight signs of aging with light therapy, and several types of massage beds melt away stress.
Guests pay an additional fee only for the products that correspond to the services they want. A sauna-suit purchase is required for the infrared sauna, and teeth-whitening treatments require a mouth guard that can be used for games of full-contact horseshoes.
Planet Beach Contempo Spa
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
