Philosophers call your face "the window to your head," although they would never say it to your head-window. Today's Groupon freshens faces after boostering backs with an hour-long customized massage and a 30-minute facial at Mango Bay Spa and Salon for $45 (a $130 value). Mango Bay is a tropical-themed retreat that CityVoters voted one of the best Indy day spas in 2008 and in 2007. You can either spread the bliss over two separate visits, or get your facial and back rub back-to-back.
Mango Bay's massages are the airplanes, dune buggies, and howdahs that take relaxation-seekers to Soothingston. This Groupon gets you the "commuter flight," a 60-minute customized massage valued at $75. Mango Bay's expert therapist will use multiple modalities to knead knots and soothe sore muscles, banishing away pain, tension, and the creative block you've had crafting that sculpture of a cow eating a stick of butter. The 30-minute "vacation" facial ($55) is an antioxidant treatment that intensely moisturizes skin and helps it heal from environmental skin stressors such as pollution, makeup, and "love bites" from your blind date's pet lemur. All Mango Bay's treatments use Italian comfort zone products, which take a sensorial and holistic approach to crafting spa products that work scientifically.
Mango Bay is an unpretentious retreat nestled on the southeast corner of 96th and Ditch. The spa is a tropical sanctuary with a vacation vibe and a complimentary signature smoothie waiting for you, so you might feel like you're marooned on a faraway island made of sunshine and wishes. If, like the characters on Lost, you find that you prefer your fantasy island to a harsh reality that's not constantly handing you smoothies, buy a second Groupon and treat yourself to another round of pampering at Mango Bay.
