Like Hawaii, relaxation can be a challenging state to reach. Ensnare elusive serenity with today’s Groupon: for $165, you get a health-and-wellness massage package, which includes a consultation (a $50 value), garshana, abhyanga, chakra-balancing, and shirodhara treatments, plus a sauna session (a $283 value), at the Center of Healing and Rejuvenation of the Mind and Body (a $333 total value).
The Center of Healing and Rejuvenation of the Mind and Body fuses the holistic philosophy of Ayurveda with an array of therapeutic massages and well-being services. Today's deal presents a 2.5-hour journey of tranquility via the aura-hugging hands of licensed massage therapist Rose Parsad, who begins with a consultation to discover your specific body type and the appropriate complementary holistic treatment strategy before starting the four-part detox massage. The relaxation-smith rubs the skin with a silk, wool, or Mickey Mouse glove to increase circulation (called garshana), prepping bone blankets for the subsequent session of warm-oil kneads. Next, the abhyanga massage’s strokes, along with a custom-blended herbal oil, work to break down impurities and stimulate the lymphatic system. The chakra-balancing treatment sends in the earth’s cosmic energies and is said to reduce mental stress, balance fluctuating emotions, and decrease the third eye’s sudoku anxiety. The last massage concludes with shirodhara, during which the therapist pours warm herbal oil over the forehead in an effort to help bring clarity and peace to the mind. Afterward, guests can sit in the sauna to purge any leftover toxins or misgivings over the series finale of Friends.
