When preparing for hot-stone massages, therapists pick out the smoothest river stones for placement on tense muscles and the most misshapen ones for throwing off the bridge later. Keep your aura in working order with today's Groupon: for $45, you get two 30-minute hand and foot reflexology treatments with hot stones at Chill & Relax Foot Spa in Fullerton (a $100 value).
Chill & Relax Foot Spa’s licensed massage therapists, Laura Trujillo and Johanna Escobedo, gently apply pressure and hot stones to carefully mapped reflex areas on hands and feet during each 30-minute reflexology session. Soothing reflexology pressure stimulates reflex areas on arms, hands, lower legs, and feet that correspond to specific organs, glands, and body parts, working to manipulate and balance the body's chi, or life energy. Post-session, soothe-seekers may experience a reduction in stress, pain, and Pat Sajak–related night terrors. The salon's lofted ceilings and hanging chandeliers surround guests as they recline in plush, reclining massage chairs replete with a cozy blanket and a walk-in closet.
Chill and Relax Foot Spa
Befitting the goal implied by its name, Chill and Relax Foot Spa immerses guests within a tranquil environment. The main room's communal treatment area features deep, rich earth tones, including milk-chocolate-hued walls and light tan carpeting, and its turquoise accent walls add a vibrant splash of color. Chandeliers hang above the recliner-like treatment chairs, which encourage clients to kick back and sink into the cushions.
During this time, one of the spa's certified massage therapists can indulge visitors with a foot massage or a reflexology treatment, which target pressure points along the feet and aim to restore a greater sense of balance throughout the entire body. Custom full-body massages are also available in the main room, although Chill and Relax Foot Spa also features a small private room where the therapists can use organic sunflower oil as they alleviate tension with the help of specialized techniques, such as deep-tissue pressure or dramatic readings of especially eloquent lease agreements.
