If pieces of taffy contained nerve endings, they would be one of the most relaxed candies, enduring countless gentle tugs and surface-cleansing licks. Unwind like a piece of nerve-laden taffy with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a 90-minute Swedish or deep-tissue massage ($88 value) or a one-hour European facial ($95 value) at Balance Day Spa in Santa Monica.
Balance Day Spa soothes bodies and minds with skin and massage treatments inside its elemental-themed interior, allowing clients to achieve a state of balance and relaxation. During a Swedish massage, a massage therapist sends away muscle tension and stress using firm but gentle strokes. Swedish massage purges muscles of lactic and uric acids and other metabolic wastes, resulting in improved circulation. Those opting for more intense therapeutic work may choose a deep-tissue treatment, which assuages chronic tightness caused by muscle exertion and spending an entire cycle in a dryer. The European facial combines deep purification with steam cleaning, exfoliation, a face, shoulders, and chest massage, and a hydrating mask.
- She is fantastic, I am a true spa junkie and I have been everywhere in town, but she is hands down the best. She uses great products, is gentle with extractions, gives a super massage and time permitting she'll just keep working on you. Pure relaxed heaven. – Natasha T., Yelp
- They welcomed both myself and my dog and gave me one of the best massages ever . Great place to switch off and in a fabulous location . – gstuffed, Citysearch
