Human bodies consistently endure stressful situations, such as work deadlines, endless errands, and the omnipresent threat of literally being buried under piles of old Chinese-takeout boxes. Escape piled-on stress with today's Groupon: for $65, you get a one-hour couples massage at Alter Ego Salon & Day Spa (a $145 value).
Alter Ego's licensed massage therapists infuse bone cages with a steady stream of calm as duos de-stress with a full hour of rhythmic kneading and one another’s company. After guiding pairs into a private room for the couples massage session, muscle mollifiers work to remove kinks, knots, and burrowed honey badgers from backs with soothing strokes and pressurized glides. The relaxing massage can increase blood circulation, ease muscular tension, and serve as a bonding experience between couples with similarly oversized stockpiles of stress. Though not included in this deal, Alter Ego also offers beautifying services such as European facials along with an array of relaxing spa packages.

Alter Ego Salon & Day Spa
Unruly curls can find a place to belong under the auspices of the Ouidad-trained staff at Alter Ego Salon & Day Spa. Healthy, manageable curls result from use of the trademark Carving & Slicing technique that maintains and enhances the natural pattern of spirographical locks. As one of the salon’s Ouidad-certified stylists, owner Jennifer Godfrey finds that helping clients love their curls has been one of the most rewarding parts of her 12-year experience. Aside from helping ringlets stay as twisty as the nationally treasured curly fry, Godfrey and her staff tend to various hair types to cut, color, or chemically treat strands. On top of a spread of classic salon services, Alter Ego's nailcare maintains healthy hand appearance, and special children’s mani-pedis keeps little ones' claws sharp to guard against impending scratch-n-sniff pop quizzes.
