After a long day of besieging steppe settlements, the Mongol hordes liked to kick back with a vigorous massage, a copy of the Daily Khan, and a nice warm glass of fermented yak's milk. Conquer your own serenity with today’s Groupon to Integrated Wellness Center & Day Spa in East Rockaway. Choose from the following options:
• For $45, you get a one-hour Spa Spectacular massage (a $90 value).
• For $50, you get a 75-minute Luxuries cellulite treatment (a $100 value).
• For $87, you get a spa contour body wrap and 30-minute infrared sauna session (a $175 total value).
Integrated Wellness Center & Day Spa's pampering staff aims to clear bodies and minds of stress, fusing medical techniques with luxurious spa treatments. The spa contour body wrap begins with an exfoliating scrub to ensure dead skin cells don't stand in the way of a circulation-stimulating contour cream. Anatomy experts then swathe physiques in a plastic film to squeeze toxins from connective tissue back into the body's waste-disposal system and teach skin what it would be like to be waterproof. While wrapped, clients will be warmly invited into an infrared sauna for a half-hour session, providing toasty but non-burny relaxation. By raising the body's core temperature, the wrap treatment also will increase heart rate, sweat output, and melting point to enhance the body wrap's effects and prepare clients for journeys into the Earth's core.
Those who prefer a relaxing human touch can turn to licensed massage therapist Peter Almas for a one-hour Spa Spectacular massage. His skilled hands will draw from a variety of massage traditions, applying their tension-releasing techniques and tongue-twisting nicknames to each body's overstressed scaffolding. The session will also include cupping, an ancient technique that creates suction by gently heating small bowls placed on the body. Alternately, the Luxuries cellulite treatment blasts uncooperative cells with a combination of infra-red sauna and lymph massage to increase lymphatic circulation, reduce cellulite visibility, and thwart paparazzi ambushes.
