While predominantly used for bribing pandas and insulating space shuttles, bamboo can also be utilized for its many healing properties and therapeutic abilities. Tap into the varied possibilities of this wonder plant with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a bamboo massage at Inner Peace Holistic Center (a $90 value).
Voted best spa in Cincinnati by CityBeat in 2009 and 2010, Inner Peace's welcoming and peaceful ambience provides an ideal escape from the world's various swarms of flying animals. The 60-minute bamboo massage employs bamboo stalks of varying lengths to provide deep tissue work while gently knead away the body's tensions. This type of massage has many healing properties, including the ability to increase circulation, sensory nerve perception, and lymphatic drainage.
Inner Peace Center
The warm, earthy tones of Inner Peace Center swaddle clients with a sense of tranquility that permeates the on-site Thai reflexology room, yoga studio, and nail stations. The staff handpicks a variety of high-end products—from the organic, biodynamic, and botanical-based Éminence skincare products to the vegan, formaldehyde-free nail-care products from SpaRitual. They also use Premierlash eyelash extensions crafted from 100% cruelty-free mink fur or nylon-based materials.
Going below the surface, Inner Peace Center indulges guests with spiritual services administered by a Reiki master, hypnotherapist, yoga instructor, holistic life coach, and clairvoyant. The retired nurse who oversees and performs these services aims to assist clients in navigating their life path, demagnetizing the needle of anyone’s internal compass.
