Spending a day at a spa is a tranquil experience surpassed only by swimming in a pool filled with mashed potatoes or having a hand model slap you to sleep. Find prudent tranquility with today’s Groupon to Modern Wellness Center. Choose between the following options:
• For $45, you get a 70-minute Modern signature massage (a $90 value).
• For $90, you get a 70-minute Modern signature massage, sea-salt body scrub, and herbal footbath (a $180 value).
At Modern Wellness Center, a licensed massage therapist sweeps dexterous fingers over tense bodies using a combination of flowing Swedish-massage techniques, the concentrated-pressure strokes of deep tissue and shiatsu, and the rhythmic touches used to drain lymph vessels. The therapist also drapes wearied bodies in hot towels, aromatic essential oils, and fluffy bunnies to top off the relaxation experience.
Patrons may opt to build on the signature massage by adding the premassage herbal footbath and body scrub. Skilled hands first scrub and massage the legs from the knee down and rub them with either peppermint or lavender oils. Guests then sip on herbal tea as they plunge tired tootsies in the warm footbath, in which rosemary- and peppermint-infused water jets blast heels free of gum hitchhikers. Next, bare bods relax inside a coat of blended oils and sea salts, which the massage therapist wipes away with exfoliating gloves, resulting in softer skin. Steam from a tableside train then billows over the body, opening pores and prepping the skin to absorb the essential oils during the ensuing massage.
