Having sore muscles, like signing a five-year lease or wearing lead socks, makes it difficult to move. Evict tensely wound tenants with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a one-hour Swedish or deep-tissue massage at Bella Mia Spa in Clayton (up to an $80 value).
Within a 1,100-square-foot Tuscan-themed relaxation center, Bella Mia Spa's licensed massage therapists nurture tranquility into its fullest bloom. Before the one-hour kneading treatment begins, a plush robe envelops tight torsos and prepares them for further calming. Swedish massage soothes the entire body with medium pressure as it helps veins circulate sluggish blood and long-overdue holiday newsletters. Deep-tissue massage takes overworked, chronically tense, or sports-sore limbs into its firmer grasp, breaking up longstanding patterns of stress and star-crossed romances between neck muscles and worries. Bella Mia beckons bodies into its staff's expert hands from a warmly hued waiting room stuffed with cushy armchairs and intricately patterned rugs and pillows.
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.
