Although it doesn't provide the discomfort and high ticket prices associated with an airport pat-down, a massage is still an effective tool for discovering concealed knives and small firearms. Prove you’re not packing in the most relaxing way with today’s Groupon: for $34, you get a one-hour massage at Archstone Spa in Oakland (a $68 value).
Offering full-body massage and reflexology treatments, Archstone Spa’s professional muscle kneaders relax tense tendons and quiet chatty minds in a serene spa environment. Equipped with single- and double-occupancy rooms, guests can choose to indulge in the gentle strokes of a Swedish massage, the muscle-melting pressure of a medium massage, or the heavy hand of a deep-tissue massage designed to separate tendons quarreling over funny-bone crushes. Although all three massage styles promote relaxation and well-being, freshly kneaded figures may also experience improved circulation, straighter posture, and tension relief.
Archstone Spa has packaged deals on massages but this Groupon is still the best deal for a single massage.
