What You'll Get
The world's first day-spa owner invited clients to "experience the healing powers of this here tar pit," which was bad news for the clientele but invaluable for modern-day archaeologists. Preserve well-being without becoming permanently preserved with today's Groupon: for $65, you get an ocean algae detox wrap and tub treatment (an $85 value), and a back, neck, and shoulder massage (a $45 value) at The Finishing Touch located in Boulder (up to a $130 total value).
Inside The Finishing Touch's Caribbean-themed spa and salon, sea murals moisturize the walls and relaxing treatments energize debilitated bodies in island-style thatched huts. Customers can indulge in the on-site sauna and enjoy a complimentary beverage prior to the approximately 90-minute spa session. First, an experienced massage therapist will knock out knots using graceful, gliding strokes across the back, neck, and shoulders to ease tension and increase circulation during the 25-minute massage. For the rest of the session, clients soak in rich, tension-tackling black-moor mud and then detoxify with the ocean-algae wrap. After their release from their seaweed-style cocoon, they'll feel healthier, invigorated, and more relaxed than a man napping on a mattress made of money.
Though The Finishing Touch offers $15 off any massage for new customers through their website, this Groupon is still the best deal available.

About FT Boulder
The loyal staffers at FT Boulder—many of whom have been at the salon-spa since its inception 30 years ago—beautify bodies in a soothing, tropical-theme atmosphere. On the salon floor, a consultation kicks off hair appointments before nationally certified Redken stylists shampoo strands, lop off locks, and then style them with a blow dryer or a ride in a convertible. In the spa's private treatment rooms, FT helps guests to leave the concrete world outside and escape to relaxing oasis as they prep for anti-aging facial treatments, mud wraps, body waxing, or massage-therapy services. Before treatments, guests are encouraged to sip complimentary beverages while guessing which of the spa’s ubiquitous plants have recently been shampooed.
