Swedish physiologist Henri Peter Ling established the Swedish massage at the University of Stockholm in 1812 after noting the exceptional effect it had on fish, turning them from uptight and scale-riddled to red, gummy, and sweetly delicious. Go from stoic to supple with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a one-hour Swedish massage at La Ritz Spa & Salon on Dogwood Drive Southeast in Conyers (a $75 value). The soothing spot boasts a variety of rejuvenating services, stellar staff, and a spacious, inviting interior ideal for pampering. Relax in the dexterous hands of fully trained massage therapists as they knead the stress out of your tensioned torso with light, gliding strokes and calming pressure, helping to reduce anxiety while turning stiff shoulders and backs into serene pools of tranquility as malleable as play-doh's agreeable personality.
La Ritz is closed on Sundays.

La Ritz Spa & Salon
Within La Ritz Spa and Salon's 4,000-square-foot beauty center, aestheticians and massage therapists dote on clients in 15 private treatment rooms. Skincare experts draw from a menu of more than 15 facials, including a pumpkin-peel facial whose enzymes won't irritate sensitive skin and an olive-oil and leaf mask for dry and mature skin.
Clients reward their muscles for carrying cars over large puddles by undergoing the stress- and tension-eliminator massage, a bodywork treatment that starts with a scalp rub and slowly works its way down to the neck, shoulders, arms, and feet. The center's staff also includes hairstylists who leverage international training to yield fashionably cut and colored 'dos.
