For centuries mankind has envied pizza dough and wondered how we too could be kneaded to relaxed, savory states without paying for the luxury of being escorted via wooden paddle to a Sicilian brick oven. Smite smug pizza-pies with today's Groupon: for $65, you get a 100-minute Thai herbal compress massage at Bohemian Massage & Bodywork in Vancouver, Washington (a $130 value).
Owned and operated by licensed massage practitioner Valerie Kelly, Bohemian Massage & Bodywork's relaxing 100-minute Thai herbal compress treatment begins with a foot soak and massage in sweetly scented rose water, followed by a Swedish-style massage using Thai blended oils. Combining elements from a hot-stone massage with a detoxifying Thai herbal body wrap, the treatment relieves pain and improves blood circulation while exfoliating the skin and purifying the mind of everyday stresses and out-of-hand dinosaur obsessions. Clients can take home their compresses for future bath soaks.
