Much like fine pottery, the human body requires a certain amount of massaging, rubbing, and time spent in a really hot room before it's safe for use in the dishwasher or microwave. Repurpose your personal vessel with today’s Groupon to Aequis Spa Retreat. Choose between the following options:
- For $75, you get $150 worth of spa services.
- For $125, you get a romance couple's massage with chocolates and champagne (a $300 value).
The wellness wizards at Aequis Spa Retreat meld minds and bodies into one euphoric synthesis with an extensive selection of soothing spa experiences. Give birth to a born-again face with a variety of facials, including the 55-minute moisture-drench facial, which employs a combination of exfoliation and moisture to leave skin looking dewy and fresh ($145). Or flop face-down for a muscle-relaxing Swedish massage that begins with a therapeutic foot scrub and ends as stress and muscle knots are melted and turned into lingonberry jam ($90/45 minutes). Aequis further perpetuates a pandemic of relaxation with body wraps, manicures, and a diverse offering of world-therapy rituals designed to cultivate total awareness.
Alternatively, pairs take a tandem journey through tension relief during the romance couple's massage. Prekneading, starry-eyed souls slip into plush robes and sink into sofas with chocolates and champagne as staff kicks off the 130-minute session with a 25-minute relaxing foot treatment. Then, as couples recline in a candlelit room sprinkled with rose petals, massage therapists cosset muscles until the two feel limber enough to pedal a bicycle built for 10 all by themselves.
