Relaxation is necessary for reaching a state of serenity and imperative when you misplace your detailed map of that state. Stay calm with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a facial, a foot soak with massage, and a glass of wine (up to a $112 value) at Comma, a vinotherapy spa on Southwest Morrison Street.
A new repose emporium incorporating wine into spa services combined with an on-site art gallery, Comma bestows soothing strokes, sips, and sights upon patrons in need of pampering. Ready stressed-out countenances for the daydream facial, 30 minutes of refreshing calm tangibly applied to your mug until it glows brighter than a firefly on the sun (a $40 value). The Pause for a While foot soak and massage takes tense noggins, necks, and shoulders for a 20-minute spin around limberland while hardworking toe beams bathe in a vinotherapy foot soak (a $60 value), utilizing the powerful anti-oxidants and polyphenols of grape skins, seeds and leaves. After surfacing, feet are treated to a 20-minute kneading that eases out podiatric anxiety so they can muster up the courage to ask higher-ranking ankles for a raise. During the spa treatments, participants 21 and older can swig a glass of adult grape drink (a $5–$12 value; prices vary with stock) and then peruse the adjacent gallery for up-close glimpses of works by local artists.
Comma Vino Spa
Walking into an art museum and asking the docent for a neck massage may not be the best idea. But at Comma Vino Spa, guests enjoy relaxing massages and reflexology, mani-pedis, facials, and haircuts within an emery board's throw of a gallery full of ever-changing artwork by local photographers and painters. They can soak up the attention with a glass of wine in hand, which is often also produced locally.
Aestheticians and massage therapists even incorporate the therapeutic power of grapes into their treatments, using vinotherapy products formulated with grapes and byproducts of winemaking, such as happiness. The potent ingredients work their free-radical-fighting magic as clients lounge in chairs that recline into beds beneath sparking chandeliers and a flickering fireplace.
