Going to a spa, like stowing away on a space shuttle or buying a globe one hemisphere at a time, allows people to leave the rest of the world behind. Get away from it all with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get a spa package at Finishing Touch Spa in Boulder (up to a $130 total value). The package includes:
- Magic mud wrap (up to an $85 value)
- Stress-relief massage (up to a $45 value)<p>
The body coddlers at Finishing Touch Spa rely on natural ingredients to power services that, as befits the setting’s tropical theme, offer an escape from reality. The mineral-rich Magic mud wrap swathes guests in Canadian-moor mud, a substance that soothes skin while saturating the air with a pleasant aroma. The treatment catalyzes blood flow and shoos lactic acid and excess water from patients’ muscles, relieving swelling and joint pain so that clients still have the dexterity to slice up the last Skittle. Following the wrap, a professional muscle-masher relieves tension in a guest’s neck, back, and shoulders during the 20-minute stress-relief massage. Caressing skin with smooth, gentle strokes, therapists untangle muscle knots and tendons that have been twisted into the shape of a doggy.
Finishing Touch Spa’s Caribbean flair helps guests leave the concrete world outside and escape to an oasis of soothing hues and tropical-island wall hangings. Before treatments, beauty seekers can relax in the sauna or sip complimentary beverages while guessing which of the spa’s ubiquitous plants have recently been shampooed.
Though Finishing Touch Spa sometimes features discounts online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
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.
