If left unchecked, a stressful lifestyle, like asking for an alligator's hand in marriage, can result in health complications. Court healthy living with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a 25-minute express facial and a 30-minute Swedish or deep-tissue massage at Moonstone Skin and Body Care in Novato (a $100 value).
Moonstone Skin and Body Care's seasoned specialists refresh the faces and relax the musculature of time-crunched patrons with two pampering services fit into a one-hour spa session. Aestheticians inaugurate stress-busting sessions with gentle cleansing and exfoliation that leave skin as fresh as the day it was velcroed onto your skull. Using Éminence's organic skincare line, staffers then layer visages in a soothing mask that creates a bright, balanced complexion sealed in with a moisturizing lotion. Moving on to the massage, therapists marshal a series of soothing strokes in Swedish or deep-tissue modalities, fashioning 30 minutes of knot unwinding for backs, leaving them as tension-free as a retired rubber band.
