Stress can withstand tickle fights and cuddles from kittens, but it cannot resist a good soak and sweat. Today’s Groupon for an hour-long soak and sauna for two plus towel rental (a $30 total value) at Common Ground Wellness Center will help rid you of tension and strain: for $15, fit your worries in a plush towel and wish them a fond farewell.
A trip to the relaxing space at Common Ground Wellness Center will remind you that peaceful places still exist in a world full of holiday stresses, burnt raspberry cookies, and cloverfields. In the company of a loved one or a dependable soaking buddy, offer your muscles bubbly tranquility by taking a dip in the large outdoor hot tub with muscle-loving therapy jets. Then, head to the beautiful dry-cedar sauna, where heat will sweat out all your toxins, relieve joint pains, and help blood flow.
Harkening back to old days, when society had fewer rules and less-stringent manners, Common Ground is a co-ed and swimwear-optional spa that encourages physical and spiritual freedom. The relaxation oasis maintains community, women-only, and men-only hours for complete comfort. Enter your garden of paradise under your own rules of coziness and see the wonders an hour's worth of soaking and effervescing can do for your spirit’s clarity.
Remember to call in advance to schedule your relaxation appointment. Each dynamic duo may purchase up to three Groupons, but only one may be used per visit.
