A day at the spa is as relaxing as the first eight weeks living alone on a submarine. Succumb to the silence with this Groupon.
$99 for a Spa Day ($220 Value)
- 60-minute organic facial with biodynamic skincare products (a $90 value)
- 60-minute Sweet Therapy massage with homeopathic gels (a $95 value)
- Bikini-line sugaring depilatory treatment (a $40 value)
Sweet Therapy sports massages call upon homeopathic gels and enzymatic balms to help ease sore muscles, improve circulation, boost joint mobility, and release lactic acid and toxins. For sugaring treatments, specialists use a room-temperature paste of sugar, lemon juice, and water to oust unwanted hair without leaving a sticky residue.
Sweet 185’s dedication to natural ingredients is apparent in its organic facials, which rely on plant essences, and its holistic massages, which use herbal oils. The same can be said about its hair removal treatments—rather than rely on chemical-laden waxes, Sweet 185’s experts hark back to the ancient Egyptian technique of sugaring, using an un-heated paste made simply of sugar, water, and lemon to remove hair.
Meanwhile, the spa's oxygen therapy treatments have caught the attention of both the Charleston Mercury and the Moultrie News. Inhaling four to five times the normal amount of oxygen in the air while reclining in the spa's leather zero-gravity chairs is said to promote healing and heighten memory, and is far easier than doing aerobics in space.
After their treatment, guests can peruse Sweet 185 boutique, where staff have handpicked gifts and goods ranging from natural chocolates to jewelry to organic sunscreen. There, visitors will also find Angel Rox clothing made with organic cotton and low-impact dyes, Jurlique creams and lotions that are never tested on animals, and Nadina bath towels, made with sustainably grown bamboo rayon.
