This Groupon melts the ice cube of stress and tension that's been uncomfortably chilling your body with an hour-long massage from Always Tan Skin and Body in the Castro. Always Tan offers specially tailored back bliss for both men and women with spa staples (such as deep-tissue, Swedish, and sports massages) and special relaxers (including trigger-point, craniosacral, shiatsu, neuromuscular, reflexology, prenatal, and lymphatic massages).
Always Tan Skin and Body is a clean and professional spa with certified and licensed therapists who specialize in therapeutic massage: soothing and curative rubs, kneads, and pats that make a body feel as if all its parts are made from hydrogen, the lightest and most pleasant gas, but without the deadly flammable component. Try a neuromuscular massage to stimulate specific areas of skeletal muscle or a shiatsu massage that incorporates Chinese medicine practice and Japanese massage traditions. As an added bonus, when you use your Groupon, you can also get a free 12-minute ultra-high tan to bronze your fully relaxed body (a $25 value).

Always Tan Skin + Body
For more than 30 years, Always Tan Skin + Body's skilled staff of technicians has been devising its ever-changing menu of advanced spa treatments to restore stressed clients. The spa gets its name from a lineup of UV-centric tanning beds that gently bronze bodies in 12- to 20-minute sessions, but the staff of aestheticians and massage therapists run a full-service spa. Luxuriously heated massage tables cradle clients' cloth-draped bodies as certified therapists summon knots from the deepest layers of the muscular system with a variety of massage styles, including shiatsu and craniosacral. Though they specialize in therapeutic massages, the dexterous therapists easily adjust their kneads to accommodate clients' injuries, soreness, or migratory pancreases. To revive vivid or dull complexions, the spa administers microdermabrasions and custom facials backed by skincare lines such as DermaQuest, Image, and Le Mieux. Between treatments, clients can take a breather in the spa's quiet lounge, lined with black leather chairs and vibrant, lily-pad-themed paintings, while indulging in hot herbal teas and filtered mineral spring water harvested from the room's personal Niagara Falls–size waterfall.
