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 $50, you get a 60-minute massage on Amethyst hot gem stone mat (up to a $115 value) at Laka Skin Care and Spa, an earthy alternative to the metropolitan vibe of downtown on Ward Avenue. As you relax amidst the serene sanctuary's warm walls, clean lines, and bliss out to the flicker of its rock candles, a licensed massage therapist will melt clogged muscle butter with one of four massages. The Swedish massage unties body-knots with gliding and kneading strokes on oil-slicked skin. For more persistent pains, the Deep Tissue delves deeper into the dermis to penetrate pressure points and unearth buried tensions. The Shiatsu gently smoothes away stress with a delicate finger technique, while the Sports massage stretches and mends muscle and joint aches for limber limbs. With an hour under the dextrous digits of Laka’s therapists, lying on an Amethyst hot gem stone heating mat will radiate a healing heat into your soul-sack, purging it of such unhealthy toxins as hatred and non-dairy creamer.
Laka Skin Care & Spa
It’s not just the soft glow of candlelight, the array of floral sprays, or even the pampering spa treatments that keep clients coming back to Laka Skin Care & Spa. They come for the salon’s holistic treatments, backed by the science of Nobel Prize–winning research. The salon’s staff is trained in everything from facial reflexology to the salon’s three signature facials.
What really sets the spa’s treatments apart are the optional add-ons. The house brand of aromatherapy, 21 Drops, infuses facials and massages with healing essential oils to entertain noses. Meanwhile, in the hot-stone detox room, heated amethyst mats detoxify both body and mind while clients relax on them. Sessions intend to increase metabolism and blood circulation while relieving muscle tension.
