Hot rocks and buckets of mud can alleviate almost any stress, particularly if it stems from being marooned on a desert island where there's enough of both materials to build a bridge back to the mainland. Dispel desert-island tension caused by an anti-climactic conclusion to Lost with today’s Groupon: for $86, you get a one-hour hot-stone massage and a 45-minute Rasul mud chamber treatment (a $172 value) at Club Biella, located downtown on Pacific Avenue.
Offering luxurious spa and salon services, Club Biella soothes minds, bodies, and souls throughout its 10,000 square feet of classy European-village-themed interior, designed to feel like its namesake Italian villa at the foot of the Alps. Upon entering Club Biella’s comfortable lounge area, guests are greeted by the sight and sound of water coursing over two walls of glass mosaics, curlicue-shaped plants, and dark-brown sofa chairs. Under the hands or tentacles of one of Club Biella's expert therapists, guests will begin their calming, therapeutic experience with a 60-minute hot-stone massage ($115), which combines the oily treatments of Ayurveda with warm basalt river stones to melt the tension from your tired body's locomotors.
After the massage brings back happy memories of blissful weeks spent trapped under a volcanic boulder, customers can relax even further by submitting their skin to the detoxifying powers of a 45-minute Rasul mud chamber treatment ($57), an Arabian treatment that mixes all-natural, nutrient-rich Austrian moor mud and steam to revitalize and rebalance the skin, tissues, and organs while you recline on heated benches in a dimly lit, glass-tiled bronze chamber. After rinsing off with a special tropical rain shower, clients will feel rejuvenated and renewed in time for their nightly harpy visitations.
Stressful things such as jobs and stress can transform your once-nimble muscles into rigid two-by-fours. A hot-stone massage and mud treatment will relight your internal furnace, drain away tension, and bring your muscles to optimal stress-exorcism temperature. Carpe this diem’s Groupon to Club Biella, and buy extras for friends so that you don't have to get stoned (and mudded) alone.

Clara's Spa & Salon
Looking around Clara's Spa & Salon, a rustic Italian villa might come to mind. That’s because each piece of decor situated within the 10,000-square-foot day spa exudes that vibe, from the intricate ironwork on the stairs to the cobblestones lining its walkways. In a bright, airy salon space, guests can relax on leather salon chairs facing mirrors that reflect their new haircuts and more vibrant hair colors. Other visitors can retire to private massage rooms in the hopes that therapeutic, Swedish, or deep-tissue techniques will work out their muscle aches and kinks. Elsewhere, the spa’s licensed professionals pamper clients with body wraps that utilize ingredients such as greek yogurt, pumpkin, or coffee and jojoba. The expansive retreat also features a pool, gym, and sauna and hot tub that give clients a place to unwind and decide which state of water they like best: liquid or gas.
