Modern-day spas are nearly identical to Roman baths in that both extend equal pampering opportunities to humans and their gladiator-consuming leonine counterparts. Do as the Romans do with today’s Groupon: for $69, you get your choice of either a Texas chiller-stone massage (a $110 value) or a Cleopatra facial (a $150 value) at Bella Nova Day Spa & Retreat, located on Highway 6 North. Both options also include a three-month membership to the spa's stress relief program (a $10/month value), which grants cardholders special discounts on select services.
Within Bella Nova's quiet, comfortable retreat, weary frontispieces can get spruced up for spring with the Cleopatra facial, which utilizes a 24-karat-gold, peel-off mask to brighten the body’s expression factory, reduce its fine lines, and combat free radicals. The Texas chiller-stone massage thwarts seasonal heat and invasions of winged buffalo with cooled stones, which are placed along the back to soothe muscles and turn recently-consumed milk into gelato. This massage also includes a special hand treatment that scrubs phalanges, massages them free of aches, and surrounds them in softening paraffin wax.
Pampered patrons can enjoy a fresh beverage and snack while awaiting treatment in one of the spa’s softly lit rooms, where bedsheets are sprinkled with rose petals and drapes hang in the air like the mist from waterfalls. Arrive 20 to 30 minutes prior to treatment to achieve maximum relaxation and maintain proper spa etiquette.
Bella Nova Day Spa & Retreat

Gauzy curtains drape over massage beds where clients can receive one of Bella Nova's nine massage modalities to help regulate energy flow and disprove the myth that tiny balloon animals dwell just beneath the skin's surface.
