Relaxation is one of the elemental forces that keeps human bodies alive, alongside air, water, fire, and antifire. Ease into your element with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a one-hour spa-reflexology session (a $75 value) at Advanced Healing Therapies, Co. in Saint Augustine. Guests can add a color-therapy session at the time of service for an additional $14.
At Advanced Healing Therapies, Co., body menders whisk away stress with one-hour reflexology treatments, which holistically address aches with pressure on targeted regions of the feet. The allaying treatment begins as feet dive into a mineral footbath, soaking in the revitalizing solution to relax and validate their scuba licenses. Then therapists activate areas on the feet that correspond to glands, organs, and muscles throughout the body, calming pains and ridding stress as guests sip complimentary herbal tea. Upon leaving Advanced Healing's earth-toned walls and natural accents, bodies feel as relaxed as if they had just plunged into a dunk tank full of Icy Hot.
