Like house parties, massages give people an excuse to forget about everyday stresses and fall asleep on someone else's table. Attend a fettle-ready fiesta with today's Groupon: for $37, you get a 60-minute Swedish massage at Beauty Spa by Ereeda in Palo Alto (a $75 value), located across from the California Avenue Caltrain station.
The staff at Beauty Spa by Ereeda helps weary bodies to swap sore muscles for relaxed backs by performing traditional European-style massages. During the Swedish massage, massage therapists glide over tender sinews before kneading them into Play-Doh mounds with reflexes. Percussion techniques and joint movement also attempt to reduce tension and improve circulation. Like a gym teacher with a doctorate in psychiatry, the Swedish massage can help people to address both physical and emotional problems.
Beauty Spa by Ereeda
Owner Valentina Tolstoguzov named her spa after Ereeda—the mythological goddess of rainbows—so that it would evoke the peace and positive energy that Ereeda symbolized. At the spa-salon, Tolstoguzov fuses her knowledge of aesthetics and Tibetan medicine to make clients feel beautiful and vibrant, like a Crayola 64-pack with the sharpener on the back. Mesotherapy, the spa's signature service, accomplishes this goal: the injection-free facial treatment makes skin healthy and vivacious by increasing the presence of vitamins, peptides, and proteins. In addition to anti-aging therapies, specialists offer all-natural facials, traditional massages, and hair and nail treatments.
