Archeologists theorize that the victims of Mount Vesuvius remained in their collapsing city not out of fear or confusion, but to take advantage of the free hot-stone massages. Experience this relaxing treatment in a serene, non-volcanic environment with today's deal: for $54, you get a one-hour Bludge treatment (a $110 value)—a combination of hot-stone massage and body polish—at Corroboree Spa, an Australian-inspired relaxery in Music Row.
From its serene Aboriginal ambience to its corpus-coddling treatments, Corroboree approaches luxury with a distinctive Aussie flair that sets it apart from other soul-sack serenaders. The 60-minute Bludge is named for the Australian term bludger, which refers to someone who lets others do the work while benefitting from their efforts. The treatment begins with a complimentary cuppa—Commonwealth speak for some sort of hoity-toity leaf-water beverage—or a glass of Australian wine. Next, heated stones are rubbed onto the body by a licensed massage therapist at specific points tailored to the client's needs, melting away any residual aches, pains, stress, or irrational fears of heated stones. After your tendons have been tenderized and your limbs loosened, your depressed dermis is uplifted with a full-body exfoliation using a sumptuous avocado-mango body polish. The whole shebang returns knotted Nellies and uptight Ursulas to a state of supple relaxation unknown since the day they first emerged from their mothers’ marsupial pouches.
With authentic Aboriginal art donning its walls, Aussie melodies wafting through the air, and organic products that incorporate the finest clays, botanicals, vegemites, and herbs from Oz, Corroboree treats patrons to an out-of-body Outback excursion, minus the debilitating jetlag and wombat infestation. Discover what makes the women glow and the men plunder in the land down under with a hot-stone massage and body polish at Corroboree Spa.
- It’s a luxurious spa, it’s an event space, it’s an art gallery and a place to get your body adorned with paint — all of the above inspired by Australian culture. – Dana Kopp Franklin, Nashville Post
- For the unannointed [sic], Corroboree is a completely unique spa experience, and for the record, yesterday's massage was — hands down — the very best massage I have ever gotten. And by very best, I mean I felt like I was high when I left. High on life, silly ... I felt fabulous!! – Her Nashville
