Couples' spa treatments, like couples' confectionary tours, allow partners to spend time together and relax while taking a romantic swim in vats of chocolate. Keep your head above milk-chocolaty waves with today's Groupon: for $155, you get a 50-minute couple's massage, with a 50-minute chocolate body wrap, private shower, steam, and infrared sauna at Massage Spa & Beyond in Mt. Prospect (a $310 value).
Massage Spa & Beyond's licensed massage therapists guide tense twosomes to tranquility with a two-hour couples' massage package. Pamperfication begins with soothing strokes in the form of a 50-minute hot-stone, deep-tissue, or modern massage followed by an 80% chocolate body wrap, which nourishes skin with vitamin E. Couples are further coddled with a private shower and a spin in the steam room. Then the spa package is rounded out with a short stay in a sauna equipped with an infrared light that promotes blood circulation while the sauna's heat extracts body toxins, purifying pores and melting muscles the way a flock of baby dragons melts the heart.
Massage Spa & Beyond
Massage Spa & Beyond encompasses 5,000 square feet of relaxing space where pampering practitioners set to work beautifying bodies with an extensive menu of salon and spa services, including a selection of treatments engineered for men. Patrons can pop in for a haircut or toenail trim and polish, for which they’ll lounge in a white leather pedicure chair, or linger for an extended luxury service such as a massage, during which sumptuous chocolate is decanted across the body. Like most presidential debates, many of the spa’s treatments are preceded by a stint in a hardwood steam or dry sauna.
