Booking your body double a beautifying treatment at a tranquil day spa creates a soundproof alibi for days spent stealing office supplies from the Canadian Forces. Make your stand-in stand out and replace your tape with bazooka putty with today’s Groupon: for $55, you get a two-visit spa package (a $195 value) at Artistic Esthetic Spa on Central Avenue.
Opened in 1988, Artistic Esthetic Spa is one of the area's largest privately owned and operated day spas and offers a variety of spa services in a calming atmosphere with funky, nature-inspired décor. Today's Groupon is good for two separate visits to this halcyon hideout, plus optional add-on bonuses exclusive to Groupon buyers. Your first visit eases keyboard-harried hands into an Express O manicure with moisturizing oil ($27), an exfoliating citrus hand scrub ($12), and a warm paraffin hand treatment ($12). Lower-body limbs are treated to an aromatherapy foot bath ($12) and relaxing foot and lower-leg massage ($20) to soothe knots incurred during a demanding foot-puppet performance of The Three Little Piggies. The second visit is an upper-body extravaganza that includes back, arm, and skin treatments. The day starts with a complimentary personalized body-care consultation, followed by the ultimate sweet/sea salt back polish ($40) and therapeutic herbal hot-oil back treatment ($40). Oil-related occurrences continue with the essential oil arm massage ($20) and a complimentary skincare sample. Both pleasure-infused days are accessorized with detoxifying herbal tea ($4) and fresh fruit ($2).
If two days is not enough to satisfy a penchant for pampering, Groupon buyers can return for a third visit and enjoy a half-off core facial for $47.50 (normally $95). Groupon buyers can also take advantage of the following optional add-ons: a $25 pedicure (normally $58) during the first visit (with French polish available for an extra $7); a $20 essential 30-minute massage (normally $40) for the second visit; and 20% off waxing services for body deforestation during the second visit. Free parking is also available.

Artistic Esthetic Spa
Artistic Esthetic Spa marries old and new in both its spa services and simple black and white decor. Traditional chandeliers hang above asymmetrical couches in the lobby, where clients can sip complimentary coffee before they journey to private treatment rooms or pedicure stations. Though the spa team specializes in Ayurveda-inspired head massages-venerated treatments common in India for thousands of years-they also perform med-spa services such as peels and body-contouring sessions designed to tone skin. And during nail services, technicians invite clients to sit beneath the glow of funky hanging lamps as they perform botanical scrubs and pedicures heightened by high-end OPI polish.
