Massage is a time-honored method of alleviating stress, as is the ancient art of crafting origami swans out of midterm exams. Ace relaxation with today's Groupon to Renew Wellness Spa in Germantown. Choose between the following options:
- For $35, you get a 60-minute Swedish massage with organic aromatherapy oils (a $70 value).
- For $45, you get a 60-minute Swedish massage with organic aromatherapy oils and a 30-minute infrared-sauna session (a $95 value).
Massage therapists at Renew Wellness Spa unwind spools of tension with one-hour Swedish massages augmented by aromatic and detoxifying treatments. Therapists gently knead necks and backs with organic aromatherapy massage oils, increasing circulation to sore spots and easing tension like a knock knock joke at an arraignment. The massage’s gentle gliding strokes can result in a host of feel-good benefits, including greater range of motion and pain allevation. Clients can augment their treatment with a 30-minute infrared-sauna therapy session, which works to warm muscles, increase metabolism, and squeeze out toxins from the body. A single dry, infrared heat sitting session may burn up to 600 calories, considerably more calories than those expended by sitting on a Ford’s carburetor.
Renew Wellness Spa
Amber Sam knows what it takes to do a complete 180. Once an overweight banker with little energy, she decided to change her life by employing healthful habits and stress-busting therapies, an effort that resulted in an 80-pound weight loss and heightened control of her diabetes. Seeing what these treatments could do for her, she left her job and opened Renew Wellness Spa, where she and her staff of licensed massage therapists inspire clients to make more healthful choices and encourage disease prevention.
In a private room enveloped in the soothing aromas of essential oils, herbs, and flower essences, a massage therapist employs long, languid strokes to relieve stress and improve circulation. In a different location, an ionic footbath works to detoxify bodies and keep little piggies from gorging on roast beef. Elsewhere, colon hydrotherapy aims to improve digestion and nutrient absorption. Staffers also prepare custom plans for those in their Wellness Works membership program, which includes amenities such as a quarterly consultation and discounts on most treatments.
