Body wraps were invented by the Egyptians, who somehow knew mankind would one day need mummies to play the saxophone solos in Halloween party songs. Do the mash with today’s Groupon: for $149, you get a spa day for two at Image Salon & Day Spa in St. Joseph (a $350 total value). The package includes:

Clients indulge in services that detoxify the body and hydrate the skin inside Image Salon & Day Spa’s recently remodeled facilities. Friends or couples can ease into a bubbling jacuzzi within a private suite equipped with a shower and couch, where they can gossip all they want without having to worry that Walter Winchell is listening in. A personalized blend of essential oils scents the detoxifying body wrap, which leaches away toxins by stimulating the lymphatic and circulatory systems with warm blankets. After the wrap, clients shower off the oils to ready skin for the custom facial. Technicians analyze guests’ skin types to determine the optimal facial regimen for each client’s health, beauty, and camouflaging needs, then cleanse and hydrate faces using seven steps that accord with their findings. Head and neck massages eradicate tension with gentle strokes so that clients can comfortably raise glasses of wine to toast their affection for one another or their mutual dislike of toasting.
