When preparing for hot-stone massages, therapists pick out the smoothest river stones for placement on tense muscles and the most misshapen ones for throwing off the bridge later. Keep your aura in working order with today’s Groupon: for $76, you get a one-hour massage package at The Spa Room (a $165 value), which includes:

  • A therapeutic massage with hot-stone massage enhancement
  • A wild-rose facial cleanse enhancement
  • A $25 gift certificate toward a future treatment<p>

The Spa Room’s massage therapists rejuvenate aching spines with treatments that relax the body and clarify skin in a cozy setting. After stones have been placed on backs as strategically as bocce balls thrown in the last round, patrons sink into the massage table’s upholstery as therapists work their hands deftly across aching skinscapes. The wild-rose facial cleanse ensures that visages don’t feel neglected, keeping skin fresh-scented with a blend of organic ingredients as massages work their way across the scalp, neck, and face. As stresses melt away and treatments come to a close, patrons’ minds can wander to a follow-up massage, which they can apply their $25 gift card toward.

Availability may be limited in early January; reservations are required.

The Spa Room

It’s easier to connect The Spa Room’s seeming hodgepodge of treatments if you look at owner Mary Szegda. Her background and training includes a master of arts degree in applied psychology, a certification for infant massage instructorship, a massage-therapy license, and training in the Feldenkrais method—a therapy designed to pinpoint and correct habits that can cause shoulder pain and muscle tension.

Together, Mary and her skilled staff, administer Swedish and prenatal massage, aromatherapy treatments, craniosacral therapy, and spa services such as a hand treatment that combines pomegranate cream and paraffin. The staff holds four advanced degrees among themselves, and several of them have experience teaching at the university level. Most of them have served as lead or assistant teachers at local massage schools. In addition, The Spa Room offers a variety of classes and workshops including massage education, infant-massage instruction, and restorative yoga.
