Massage was developed by NASA to help astronauts cope with edgy Tang-induced sugar highs, lack of ESPN, and predatory aliens stowed in the hangar bay. Achieve its soothing effects outside the soul-crushing abyss of outer space with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get your choice of the following treatments (up to a $75 value each) at Leandra's Touch Therapy:
- 90-minute deep-tissue massage
- 90-minute neuromuscular massage
- 60-minute hot-stone massage
- 60-minute Dead Sea–salt scrub
- 60-minute vanilla-and-brown-sugar scrub
The experienced massage therapists at Leandra's Touch Therapy rejuvenate clients with an array of aromatherapy-infused massage and spa treatments. A deep-tissue session penetrates to release deep-rooted tension, and a neuromuscular massage draws on trigger-point therapy to help reshape dysfunctional connective tissue. Invoking the power of heated, black volcanic rocks, a hot-stone massage leaves muscular fibers singing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching like the lead singer in a Norwegian death-metal barbershop quartet.
Alternately, clients may opt for one of two hour-long body-scrub services. A detoxifying sea-salt scrub invigorates and renews skin with minerals and salts drawn from the Dead Sea before almond, avocado, and jojoba oils hydrate skin. With an infusion of vanilla, the brown-sugar scrub sloughs off dead skin cells and helps boost circulation, while treating physiques to exterior dessert akin to bathing in a pudding parfait. Aromatherapy, complimentary with every service, adds fragrant notes such as relaxing lavender or invigorating citrus.
Though Leandra's Touch Therapy sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Peak Spa and Wellness
The licensed massage therapists at Peak Spa and Wellness are equipped with advanced training in order to treat a wide range of clients, from those suffering from muscular dysfunctions to chronic pain and injury. Notable massage treatments include neuromuscular massage to help relieve acute or chronic pain, hot stone massage to soothe aching muscles, and prenatal massage to help expecting mothers find some relief.
The staff offers soothing body wraps—think moor mud body wraps, and vanilla brown sugar scrubs, which hydrate and exfoliate the skin and unravel muscles tight from flexing every time they pass a traffic camera. Licensed and skilled aestheticians also offer customized waxing and facial services to suit clients' unique needs, such as acne prone or aging skin. Performed in a clean, relaxing space, a variety of soft and hard waxes are available to accommodate all skin types.
