At Clarity Wellness Spa, owner Clair Gray and her team of fellow massage therapists and skincare experts have created a tranquil ambiance for holistic massages and organic or light-therapy facial treatments. Couples can request a side-by-side facial or a one-hour massage with a complimentary rose and champagne toast. The space's soothing atmosphere emanates from plants, flickering candles, statues, and butterfly-themed artwork.
Susan Trevethan—a nurse with 35 years of clinical experience, a certified Healing Touch practitioner, and a Burnham Systems Facial Rejuvenation practitioner—also provides services at the spa. She aims to positively affect physical and emotional health with an energy-based approach to healing, and strives to redefine facial features with a combination of head reflexology, nerve rejuvenation, and extraneous Mr. Potato Head parts.

Named best massage/facial service by Connecticut magazine for five years running, Tranquility places an emphasis on natural, holistic treatments. Customers enter a lobby decorated in soothing earth tones through a portal wreathed with vines, where they can then choose their preferred method of relaxation, beautification, and stress lancing. The light-to-medium pressure of a Swedish massage can improve muscle tone and stimulate circulation that stalls during the course of long workdays and transcontinental boat rides in sedentary soil boxes. The Rejuvenating facial, with its deep cleansing, toning, exfoliation, mask, and extractions, can hydrate the skin and reduce evidence of aging. Additionally, customers who spend a total of $400 (including this Groupon) in November and December at the spa and attached shop will receive a $50 gift certificate though the Shop and Save Days program.
After a disappointing trip to a spa with her kids, Sundae Spa's founder didn't despair. Instead, she was struck by inspiration. After years of teaching science, she knew how well kids engaged with interactive activities, learning more when having fun. She decided to start her own kid-friendly spa, building her business around the idea of the classroom experiment. Not only can kids come to Sundae Spa for a haircut or manicure, they can also mix their very own lotions and soaps that will keep them cleaner than a playground-administered cootie shot, learning about the science of hygiene as they do. The product range supports the ability to make vegan, organic, and paraben-free products, so every child can participate.
The spa itself looks like a candy shop of yore; everything is the color of bubblegum or frosting, right down to the floor tiles and manicure chairs. Many of the products sport a dessert scent, such as chocolate cake or cookies, and kids receive complimentary ice cream with each service.
