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: for $75, you get $150 worth of spa services at Aequis Spa Retreat.
Aequis melds 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 45-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).
Go online to knead your way through the rest of Aequis's assortment of relaxing and rejuvenating services, which include body wraps, manicures, pedicures, and a diverse offering of world-therapy rituals designed to cultivate total mind, body, and emotional awareness.
Join past clients of this exotic, worldly retreat, such as Charlize Theron, Anthony Hopkins, and LeAnn Rimes, and let the crimson and golden hues and warm, glowing candles transport your body and mind into a newly serene state. The professional staff and pampering rituals will help guests finally let go of everyday stresses related to work, school, or whether or not Pluto will ever regain its planetary status in the solar system.
