The body stands up to gravity’s bullying every day, whereas the mind and soul leisurely spend their time playing sudoku and filling up on chicken soup. Give your muscles some downtime with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a couples-massage package at Body Lounge Spa in Sherman Oaks (a $260 value). The package includes the following:
- 50-minute hot-stone massage
- Foot soak and scrub
- 10-minute foot-reflexology session
- Champagne and chocolate
The couples massage can be used by any two people.
The technicians at Body Lounge Spa treat couples to joint services that ease tension from torsos, feet, and minds. Licensed massage therapists begin guests’ relaxing odysseys amid soft candlelight with a 50-minute hot-stone massage, which deploys a battalion of warmed water-treated stones to open the body’s meridians—energy pathways—and oust both muscle tension and hidden comic-book stashes in the neck and back. The stone pretreatment allows peacemaking muscle-tamers to more easily perform deep-tissue manipulation, which helps alleviate stress, improve circulation, and release toxins from the body.
Reflexologists then assess tired ground stompers, identifying stress cues from visual signs including calluses, knobby toes, or heels desperately clutching stress balls. Targeting these areas, the foot-finaglers apply pressure to try and release tension and provide relief. An indulgent foot soak completes the pampering parade before duos toast to the occasion with champagne and munch on chocolates. Each visit lasts approximately 60 minutes, and free parking behind the spa offers horseless chariots a private place to nap.
Body Lounge Spa
The staff at Body Lounge Spa cossets skin during rejuvenating facials and body wraps, and redefines nails while patrons recline in cushioned red pedicure thrones. Guests can sip a glass of wine at the beverage bar as they take in the earth-toned décor grounded in deep chocolate and caramel tones. Massage therapists then invite patrons to rooms illuminated with candles, where treatments such as the energizing Thai massage combat stress and render muscles loose enough to bound up an escalator that's going down.
