After a long day of besieging steppe settlements, the Mongol hordes liked to kick back with a vigorous massage, a copy of the Daily Khan, and a nice, warm glass of fermented yak’s milk. Conquer your own serenity with today’s Groupon: for $55, you get a 90-minute chocolate-strawberry spa package at Buoyance Inc. in Huntersville (a $155 value). The package includes:
- A 35-minute chocolate body wrap
- A 30-minute strawberry massage
- A 25-minute sugar-polish exfoliation
During Buoyance Inc.’s licensed massage therapists pamper patrons during a three-part spa package that rejuvenates bodies with delectable substances. Aromatic chocolates enhance the infrared body wrap, which sends heat on a mission to quicken the metabolism, open pores, and extract bodily impurities. Strawberry-infused massages—which play out on a heated table draped in handmade linens inside a treatment room bathed in gentle lights and soothing melodies—find therapists easing aches by performing flowing strokes and summoning a parade of puppies to prance across clients’ shoulders, neck, face, and scalp. The 90-minute session wraps up with a rejuvenating exfoliation treatment, during which specialists thoroughly remove dead skin cells with a sugar polish made from crystallized tears of happiness.
