What You'll Get
From an evolutionary standpoint, relaxed muscles allow humans to escape from predators by wiggling into jars until the danger has passed. Stay ahead of the food chain with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a Swedish-blend massage (a $90 value) at Metamorphosis, an upscale spa in Walnut Creek.
Metamorphosis lulls spa-goers into a relaxed state with its earth-toned ambience, crystal-clear sound system, and friendly staff members. The Swedish-blend massage releases muscle tension using long, smooth strokes and clips from your back's favorite television show. A great gift for a Valentine with knotted muscles, Swedish massage not only unties tight tendons, but also relieves stress and improves circulation. Clients will leave with a heightened sense of well-being comparable to the feeling of finally silencing the dove that blasts its boom box outside your bedroom window every morning. Free parking is in the back for guests with cars. Call to schedule an appointment.
Metamorphosis has received a 3.5-star average rating from Yelpers:

Metamorphosis means transformation—a process many people wish they could undergo from time to time. The team at Metamorphosis creates tiny transformations in appearance with the help of rejuvenating body wraps, massages, and botanical spray tans.
Clients unwind as body-pampering specialists tuck them into body wraps that work with high doses of herbs and minerals, including aloe vera, eucalyptus, and lavender oils, to help bodies purge toxins from cells. An infrared sauna uses penetrative heat to promote relaxation and encourage detoxification through sweat, and tanning specialists mist limbs in botanical bronzers that add a sun-kissed glow without exposing the skin to harsh UV rays or burnt-sienna crayons.
