The world's first day-spa owner invited clients to "experience the healing powers of this here tar pit," which was bad news for the clientele but invaluable for modern-day archaeologists. Preserve well-being without becoming permanently preserved with today's Groupon: for $34, you get a one-hour massage (a $69.95 value) and a 30-minute private Jacuzzi session (a $45 value) at Massage World Spa in Florida City (a $114.95 total value). This Groupon is not valid toward the hot-stone massage.
The licensed therapists at Massage World apply an array of one-hour massages onto sore bodies to restore taut muscles to their natural flexibility, and send clients to further soothe their soul sacks with invigorating dips in the Jacuzzi. Angle tense shoulders and limbs toward the deep-tissue massage, which frees lower-level muscles and tissue with stress-releasing squeezes, or ease into the Swedish massage, a classic procedure that uses five trademark stroke styles and a smidgen of snow from the Secret Alps. Those who partake in exhausting physical activity can opt for the sports massage, which hones in on specific problem areas. The reflexology massage applies pressure to spots on the hands and feet that correlate with particular regions of the body, alleviating aches and settling a decade-long feud between the big toe and the deltoid muscle. Once the one-hour massage is complete, the 30-minute private Jacuzzi immersion allows soakers to continue their stress-eschewing journeys, leaving muscle discomfort to recede into the distance.
