Inaccessible to the hands, back musculature often falls prey to freeloading "kick me" signs and hitchhiking parrots. Liberate a beleaguered back with today's Groupon: for $49, you get your choice of a Dead Sea salt scrub or dual-action body brushing plus a warm essential-oil massage at Monique's Skin Care Center in Poway (a $156 value).
Monique's Skin Care Center houses soothing services conducted with an abundance of professional products from Sothy's French line, Epicuren, and Dermalogica. During the 25-minute scrub, salt siphoned from legendary waters exfoliates exteriors, revealing a luminous scroll of underskin that is then rinsed, swaddled in terry cloth, and ferried away for the massage. The dual-action dry brushes help circulation while facilitating a thorough, bristly exfoliation.
The relaxing, 30-minute body massage turns epidermal deserts into lush oases as a stress-plundering plume of scents such as lavender, patchouli, and sage perfume the air, wafting away worries more efficiently than shots of chamomile concentrate.
