The stress and trauma of daily life build up within the body, forming glacial floes and stiffening the spine like a skeletal Ice Age. Melt tension from your muscles like Laffy Taffy in your pockets with today's Groupon to Lux Spa & Fitness, located in the Omni Hotel at Independence Park. Choose between two spa services:
- For $49, you get a 50-minute arnica and rosemary muscle melt massage (a $100 value).
- For $59, you get an embrightenment facial (a $130 value).
Lux is an Aveda concept spa bursting with Aveda's characteristically relaxing bouquet of herbal, floral, and plantular essences. Arrive early to take an indulgent retreat by the pool, in the pool, or in the very depths of a whirlpool. Give your body a rest in the hot sauna, and make full use of the lockers, robes, and slippers provided to fully unwind your body into an uncoiled mass of people fibers. The spa’s embrightenment facial targets skin discoloration by reducing dark spots to turn up the incandescence of a sun-damaged complexion. You’ll notice the improvement in your kisser’s countenance, as this treatment delivers visibly luminous results.
Alternately, the arnica and rosemary muscle melt is a decadent 50-minute massage that will relax even the most stubborn of deltoids and recalcitrant of lumbar discs. Rosemary essential oil helps to warm and stimulate aching muscles, and arnica reduces soreness, swelling, and bruising, so that your expert massage therapist can knead your muscle dough into a contented loaf of bread, except more flexible and less crumby.

Balance Spa and Fitness
Whatever spa treatment you're in the mood for—a facial, a hot-stone massage, a body wrap, a waxing, a mani-pedi—it's advisable to budget an entire afternoon for Balance Spa and Fitness. Since the spa offers complimentary access to its lavish amenities, the extra time can be spent simmering in the jacuzzi, taking a leisurely dip in the pristine indoor lap pool, or working up a sweat in the fitness center. When treatment time arrives, the staff leads its robe-clad clients to one of the four private treatment rooms. The specialists favor advanced Naturopathica products made from age-defying ingredients such as soothing aloe, refreshing lavender, and Helen Mirren's DNA.
