Like losing one's glasses, stress makes people irritable and prone to snuggling with houseplants. Focus on stress relief with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a one-hour deep-tissue massage at The Spa at Park Lane in Elmwood Village (a $75 value).
Licensed massage therapist Emily Robson relaxes tight muscles in The Spa at Park Lane’s soothing oasis of rich gold draperies, gleaming wooden floors, and calming candles. Men and women can surrender to a full hour of deliberate strokes and direct muscle-grain pressure while basking in the warm glow of a striking chandelier, then step into a soft, white robe to discover how polar bears keep their cool during thunder blizzards.
Earth-toned walls, marble countertops, and posh Oriental rugs add a touch of opulence to the experience, allowing guests to wind down while they dream about embarking on throne-shopping sprees and outfitting their homes with marshmallow-filled moats.
The Spa at Park Lane
Visitors to The Spa at Park Lane step under a columned archway to enter a room awash in the soft glow that emanates from a row of chandeliers. Housed in private treatment rooms, the spa’s licensed massage therapists and aestheticians alleviate stress and soften skin with Eminence Skincare products made exclusively in Hungary.
