Relaxation is one of the elemental forces that keeps human bodies alive, alongside air, water, fire, and anti-fire. Ease into your element with today's Groupon: for $42, you get a Franklin Spa essential spa mani-pedi (a $90 total value), a one-hour full-body Swedish massage (an $85 value), or a 50-minute relaxing facial (an $85 value) at either of Franklin Spa's two locations in Franklin and West Bloomfield.
Enveloped in Asian décor augmented by verdant plants and rife with plush leather chairs, Franklin Spa and its experienced aestheticians stultify stress through a cache of spa services. Those who choose the essential spa mani-pedi first will be pampered with a 30-minute finger treatment, during which a nail specialist will groom frazzled cuticles, shape finger shingles, exfoliate the epidermis, relieve calluses, and knead away tension through an arm and hand massage, bolstered by a signature scrub, a salutary hot oil treatment, and an optional polish. Then the technician will assuage envious shoe tenants with a 30-minute pedicure, wherein the feet are soaked, massaged, and exfoliated before the deft digit expert trims, files, and shapes nails, pushes back creeping cuticles, and applies a color of your choice. Or, opt for the one-hour full-body massage. A therapist will melt stress using the Swedish modality, which can be customized to target a specific region of muscles that may or may not be recognized by science textbooks. You can also choose a 50-minute relaxing facial, which suffuses visages with vivaciousness via skin analysis, treatment mask, moisturizer, sunscreen, and two ounces of highly concentrated sanguinity captured from the aura of a cheerleading squad. Though not included with your Groupon, Franklin Spa also offers a monthly membership program for those especially fond of their services.

Franklin Tea Spa
At locations in Franklin, Royal Oak, and most recently Birmingham, experienced aestheticians dissolve stress with soothing massages, facials, and nail treatments that utilize fruit-infused scrubs or oils from Sacred Earth Botanicals. Inside private treatment rooms, techs evict toxins with Dead Sea mud or seaweed body wraps and knead knots into untied shoelaces with aromatherapy massages or therapeutic stretches. Treatments, including a slate of mani-pedis, come in various packages for half-day pampering sessions, with tasty add-ons such as a spa lunch or bubbly sips of champagne. Alternatively, the spa's concierge services take the pampering out of the spa and into the shells of stressed turtles or homes of customers, who may also request assistance with errands, laundry, and grocery pickup.
