Sea urchins are the healthiest, most relaxed creatures on Earth due to their positive self-image and spiny skin. Get similar protection from stress, sickness, and sea otters with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a 45-minute zen hot-stone massage at Heaven Scent (a $180 value).
Heaven Scent mixes holistic health and wellness solutions with an environmentally conscious New Age flair. Clients recline on a table while registered massage therapists heat polished basalt lava stones to prepare for therapy. As they apply the warm rocks, muscle technicians gently knead, roll, and apply other percussive massage techniques. Hand strokes in conjunction with heat therapy can melt away muscle pains, relieve stress and tension, and reveal whether the client has been a snowman the entire time.
Though its wares aren't included with this Groupon, Heaven Scent's store has a generous selection of holistic products from supplements and vitamins to bath supplies and incense. Clients can also opt to attend any one of several guest lectures hosted on the premises, with topics ranging from numerology to astrology (not included with this offer).
Heaven Scent is a blend of an alternative-medicine clinic, the Canadian Institute of Alternative Medicine, a full-service spa, and a new-age store providing supplies to both licensed holistic-health professionals and health-conscious customers. Its founder, Christine Richards, established Heaven Scent because she wanted to open a place where the local community could go for all its alternative-medicine needs, eliminating the need for people to fly to China every time they sneezed.
With the belief that pharmaceutical medicine isn’t the only path to vitality and fitness, Heaven Scent’s holistic health experts practice more than 50 alternative-medicine treatments that bolster the body without invasive procedures. Chinese acupuncture and zen stone massages facilitate the body’s natural healing processes, and nutritional counselling equips clients with the know-how to fuel their bio-motors with healthy foods instead of deep-fried candy canes. Powerful magnets, aromatics, detoxes, and reiki massages aid staff members in levelling out their clients’ internal systems.
