Relaxation is one of the elemental forces that keeps human bodies alive, alongside air, water, fire, and antifire. Ease into your element with today’s Groupon: for $36, you get a spa package at Body Angels Spa in Brandon (an $85 total value), which includes the following:
- A 45-minute Swedish massage (a $30 value)
- An express facial (a $35 value)
- A hand treatment (a $20 value)
Spa specialists pamper clients with massage and skincare treatments set to soothing music in sumptuous, dimly lit treatment rooms. Swedish massage, with its long, relaxing strokes, encourages rigid muscles to loosen their grip on shoulder blades, allowing them to squeeze into a museum’s air ducts shortly after closing time. A 30- to 40-minute express facial utilizes Clarisonic skincare products and helps to rejuvenate complexions. Speedy extractions follow closely behind, ousting the dirt and the makeup residue that clog pores. Digits are then doused in essential oils and wrapped in warmed towels, sealing in moisture and a renewed sense of belonging.
Body Angels Spa
Soft candlelight and soothing music waft through Body Angels Spa as licensed massage therapists and aestheticians pamper, calm, and beautify visitors in rooms modeled after a sultan's quarters. Individual clients, couples, and their strictly platonic imaginary friends sink into private treatment rooms during massages that refresh tired muscles with techniques such as cupping—the placement of warm, aromatic basalt stones atop zones of tension. Aestheticians sculpt nails, wax away unwanted hair, and refurbish faces with PCA skincare products. Airbrush artisans turn down skin's white balance during spray tans.
