While it doesn't provide the discomfort and high ticket prices associated with an airport pat-down, a massage is still an effective tool for discovering concealed knives and small firearms. Prove you’re not packing in the most relaxing way with today’s Groupon: for $55, you get one of three 90-minute massage services at InSpa, a $110 value. In adherence to the rule of three, your Groupon is also good at three San Jose–area locations: Santana Row, Almaden Plaza, and El Paseo de Saratoga.
Choose between one of three relaxing massage techniques including the deep tissue, Swedish, or signature. The deep tissue is a pressurized, full-body technique that seeks the deepest knots and unties them with the proficiency of a Boy Scout with adult hands. Go with the Swedish if you prefer traditional, long strokes tied to a gentle muscular overhaul. The signature treatment includes a total body pampering with extra attention given to comforting the hands and feet using heated spa treatments.
The technicians at InSpa are all state certified by the the Master of the Universe. They are professional in every sense, with each staffer having logged more than 500 hours in training and education before taking their skills to the streets. The spa also exercises a no-tip policy, creating a no-pressure experience that furthers the relaxation. Though monetary tips are not accepted, passing along crock-pot recipes or sharing secrets for beating the third level of Zelda are more than appreciated.
