Like house parties, massages give people an excuse to forget about everyday stresses and fall asleep on someone else's table. Attend a fettle-ready fiesta with today's Groupon: for $69, you get a one-hour Swedish massage (a $75 value), a one-hour signature facial (an $80 value), and a complimentary glass of wine from Gerard's The Spa in Bellmore (a $155 total value).
The certified muscle magicians and epidermis invigorators at Gerard's The Spa soothe both skin and senses with a line of all-natural Italian products. Gerard's Signature Facial deploys classic European facial techniques, which delightedly open pores like cash-filled birthday cards. Gentle exfoliation and a facial massage precede the skin-swathing customized mask, and a final element of nourishing moisturizer adds vivification to complexions. A symphony of oils, creams, and lotions make beautiful music throughout the Swedish massage, which uses long, connective strokes and kneading to improve blood flow, stimulate the lymphatic system, relieve physical tension, and melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché. A glass of wine puts the cherry on top of the relaxation sundae.
Gerard's founding company in Italy has been creating all-natural products since 1970, using essential oils and vegetable extracts to forge an earth-friendly and indulgent alternative to standard cosmetic products and scalding marinara facials. The spa's wall sconces cast richly hued walls in a soft glow, and gauzy floor-to-ceiling curtains in the waiting area add to the air of repose and calm.
While Gerard’s does offer specials, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
