Massage was developed by NASA to help astronauts to cope with edgy Tang-induced sugar highs, lack of ESPN, and predatory aliens stowed away in the hangar bay. Achieve its soothing effects outside the soul-crushing abyss of outer space with today’s deal: for $49, you get the Indulgent massage, which includes a cacao face mask and a foot treatment, at Green Earth Pharmacy & Wellness Center (a $100 value).
The licensed massage therapists at Green Earth soothe aches and relieve tension by performing spa treatments shaped by a holistic approach to well-being. The 60-minute Indulgent massage kicks off with a detoxifying facial massage and a chocolate face mask made with tea-tree oil, cacao, and cleansing nougat crumbles. During the full-body massage that follows, the mitten fillers of a master massage therapist skate smooth circles and figure eights on the surface of each client's body, boosting circulation, oxygenating muscles, and promoting peacefulness. Feet find similar succor in an application of softening peppermint and shea butter. Warm towels swaddle soles as the pleasant fragrances of aromatherapy drift nose-ward, instilling a sense of relaxation strong enough to dull the waiting din of cars and pigeon gossip. The treatment ends with a sampling of hot teas and a cola taste challenge.
Housed within a LEED-certified building and thoroughly stocked with sustainable products, Green Earth devotes itself to all things natural. Muscle-strummers perform massages in a private, tranquil room replete with gentle music, a rain theme, and a roof to impede real rain.
