What You'll Get
Welcome to Groupon, Birmingham! For our inaugural deal, you get a 90-minute deep-tissue massage at Escape Therapeutic Massage in Homewood. Since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Birmingham: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power."
If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (35 for today's deal) sign up by the end of the day, you'll be emailed a gift certificate the next morning. You can print your Groupons or redeem them with our iPhone app. Use them whenever you want until the deal expires—today's expires in a year. If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
For centuries, mankind has envied pizza dough and wondered how we too could be kneaded to relaxed, savory states without paying for the luxury of being escorted via wooden paddle to a Sicilian brick oven. For $39, you get a 90-minute deep-tissue massage (a $100 value) at Escape Therapeutic Massage in Homewood.
Escape's owner, the talented Carrie Stewart Wheelock, dexterously unclogs muscle traffic jams with nine years of massaging experience. Each deep-tissue massage utilizes deep, firm pressure to smooth out bunches of knots and focus on trouble areas while ridding the body of accumulated barnacles and tumbleweeds. Additionally, customers may purchase additional Groupons as gifts, sharing the gift of loose and limber muscles with high-strung friends and baseball umpires.
A relaxing 90-minute retreat doesn’t have to entail sneaking away during work to take a dip in the boss’s backyard pool. Part the pea soup with a moment of clarity that will live beyond your visit to Escape Therapeutic Massage. Use your newfound clearheadedness and rubberized being to achieve higher productivity, contagiously relax those around you, or finally beat Galaga.

About Escape Day Spa
Escape Day Spa co-owners Carrie Wheelock and Alicia Liddon know how therapeutic a day at the spa can be. Wheelock, an experienced massage therapist, has witnessed the restoration and healing power of touch while both giving and receiving massages. Liddon, on the other hand, is not only an aesthetician, but also a wife and mother of three who understands the daily stressors of family life. Her passion for healthy skin has helped ground her and was her inspiration for opening her own skincare clinic.
At the spa's new location in Edgewood, the duo and their team perform treatments that range from multimodality massages and facials with organic Babor products to mother-of-pearl body scrubs and mani-pedis with vegan SpaRitual polish. They also create spa packages that allow romantic couples, pairs of best friends, or celebrities and their egos to enjoy chocolates and champagne while relaxing together.
