Massages reward the hardworking body for everyday tasks such as heavy lifting, uncomfortable sleeping, and constantly pointing out trick props during a children's magic show. Reap the magic of pampering with today's Groupon from Jessa Sullivan at Esse Studio Salon and Spa in York. Choose between two options:
• For $25, you get a half-hour Swedish, deep tissue, or reiki massage (a $40 value).
• For $25, you get a half-hour exfoliating body-scrub treatment (a $50 value).
Licensed massage therapist and trained body-wrap wizard, Jessa Sullivan, pampers customers with skin- and sanity-restoring services. Skin is submitted to the healing properties of salt scrubs during a half-hour exfoliating treatment. As clients relax on a warmed treatment bed, their skin is swathed in invigorating spoils from the Dead Sea. Exfoliating products send destitute skin cells scampering away, leaving the epidermis softer, shinier, and as evenly textured as an unused billiards table. Afterwards, warm towels slather the body and soak the scrub off the revitalized skin. Alternatively, tension and stress fall victim to one of three massage options. Generalized stress succumbs to the long, spanning strokes of the Swedish massage, and muscles misbehaving in the subterranean realm release tension and pain with the pressurized deep-tissue massage. Reiki massage sets its sights on harmonizing energy, implementing gentle touch and bodywork to fuse the mind and body together like a centaur superglued to a unicycle.
Customers waiting in Esse Studio Salon and Spa's main studio area find themselves embraced by the warm tones of the natural wood adorning the floor and cabinets. As clients wait for their turn in the pampering queue, natural light bathes the room with a glow normally reserved for beaches and moon landings.
