What You'll Get
If you've ever sat beside a roaring fire, wishing its flame fingers would reach out and massage your aches and pains away, today's Groupon gives you all the warmth of a fire massage without the uncomfortable burns: for $45, you get a 60-minute hot-stone massage and a $25 gift certificate good for a subsequent visit to Blue Monarch Massage, located in Bracken Village (a $110 total value).
In a restored 19th-century cottage swathed in antique rose bushes, Blue Monarch Massage's mother-daughter team tames tension with a variety of soothing services. During a one-hour hot-stone massage, heated granite stones warm up and relax key muscle groups as the stone-wielding therapist kneads deeper layers of muscle into dough-like consistency ($85). A gift certificate can acquire upgrades to a future massage service, such as moisturizing glamour glow treatments that slather the hands or feet in botanical body butter ($10 each), or extra heapings of hot towels to keep muscles toasty inside sauna forts ($5+). For alternative relaxation regimens, choose from a slew of spa treatments, such as a mini fresh face's exfoliating botanical cleanse ($25).

About Blue Monarch Massage
Close your eyes. Picture a country cottage surrounded by rose gardens. Now walk in and lie down. A team of massage therapists stands at the ready to apply warm towels to your sore muscles. Just as the first whiff of lavender and peppermint reaches your nose, you feel their practiced hands press down on your knotted muscles and overworked joints. Or maybe you feel warm and soft as a layer of gentle exfoliants, botanical body butters, and moist towels wrap your body to soothe and nourish your skin. After what feels like hours, you slowly rise from the table, muscles loose and skin soft. Before you can say thank you, you're handed a free bottle of spring water to wash down a selection of sweet chocolates. The scent of aromatherapy oils fades away as you leave the spa haven, and the smell of fresh roses ushers you outside. The country opens up in front of you. Now open your eyes.
It's not a dream. The quaint country cottage surrounded by rose gardens, the gentle massage therapists, the free chocolates—it's all very real at Blue Monarch Massage, where bodies benefit from the mother and daughter team’s years of collective experience delivering pain-relief and relaxation. The duo’s attention to detail turns simple spa services into full-blown, luxurious experiences with amenities such as free chocolates, hot-towel applications, and aromatherapy oils.
