Caring for your body is a task that knows no end, much like counting all the stars in the night sky or shaving Mount Rushmore. Attend to your anatomy with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a one-hour Swedish massage at Elements Skin Care & Massage Studio in Santa Rosa (a $75 value).
Owner Heather Marsh and her expert staff relax muscles with Swedish massages at Elements Skin Care & Massage Studio. Stressed sinews unfurl under the fluid massage strokes of experienced hands and during long phone conversations with a compassionate set of dumbbells. The full-body massage works to stimulate circulation, release tension, and create a sense of tranquility. Plush spa robes swaddle clients tucked into cushy massage beds in earth-toned rooms, where flickering candles create a soothing atmosphere and help the staff to scare away remaining stress with shadow puppets.
Elements Skin Care & Massage Studio
A visit to Elements Skin Care & Massage Studio is as much a treat for the eyes as it is for the senses. In each of the spa’s spacious chambers, the stark geometry of dark wood furniture complements the flowing lines of a sheer curtain, a linen-draped massage table, or a single potted orchid. These aesthetic pleasures only serve to enhance the sensory decadence that the staff of skin specialists, massage therapists, and nail technicians grant their clients. A slate of 10 facials —including a signature service that treats not only the face to a massage, but the feet, legs, back, and scalp as well—help stave off blemishes and fine lines with Bioelements products. In private massage rooms, therapists call on several modalities to ease tension with hot stones, firm pressure, or pregnancy-appropriate strokes, as reflexology foot treatments ease tension stemming from tight shoes or arguments between toes. Feet can also bask in the spa’s many pedicures, which go beyond standard nail-salon services to incorporate heated lava shells, warm neck wraps, and even complimentary martinis.
