Before massages, rusty-jointed humans were forced to relax by spritzing joints with oil and playing Hugh Grant blooper reels on repeat. Un-tin your torso with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a one-hour deep-tissue massage at Bella Mia Spa in Clayton (an $80 value).
Bella Mia unwinds local bodies and minds seven days a week in a warmly lit environment accented by cozy rugs and calming candles. Wrap overworked muscles and underworked muscle stand-ins in a plush robe before beginning your one-hour, customized deep-tissue massage. Bella Mia's friendly, professional therapists will soothe chronically tense tissues with a wide variety of massage techniques, alternating between firm squeezing, soft pressure, and delicate lectures on the dangers of peer pressure.
Twenty-one Yelpers give Bella Mia Spa an average rating of four stars:
- First of all, I was really pleased with how hospitable everyone was there. Every single employee made sure we were completely comfortable during our day there. – Stephanie G., 12/11/09
Bella Mia Spa
The family that owns Bella Mia Spa has been pampering clients for 25 years, so they know a thing or two about helping people to relax. Within the cozy, Tuscan-themed space, staffers perform treatments that soothe both body and mind, using fragrant ingredients such as a lavender foot soak or seasonally scented facial products. They enhance physical and mental wellbeing with hot-stone massages or reflexology sessions, and promote detoxification with warm, herbal body wraps.
A small, green topiary, a cherub-like statue, and a water fountain set a tranquil tone as they greet guests near the entrance. Stone accents along the walls create an ambiance reminiscent of old-world Italy or the Alpine quarry where yodeling was invented.
