Valentine's Day is typically a stressful time of booked restaurants, singing telegrams, and raccoon uprisings. Today’s Groupon will help you and your date stay loose and relaxed through it all: for $70, you get two one-hour Swedish massages and two half-hour candlelit Jacuzzi soaks at Body Options Massage and Day Spa (a $170 value). Located in Hazelwood's Village Square Shopping Center in North St. Louis County, Body Options' quiet, comfortable atmosphere and professional staff make it worth the short drive.
