Talented sculptors can make a man out of marble, a swan out of ice, and a functioning defibrillator out of cotton candy. Turn your body into a finely chiselled work of art with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get $100 worth of spa services at Ocean Palm Spa in Sidney.
Featured in Canadian Geographic as a favourite spa getaway, Ocean Palm Spa allots leisure for the brain and body with a gaggle of spa treatments for gentlemen and gentlewomen. Lush treatment rooms, accented in soft hues and capable of accommodating a group of up to 16 tension hoarders, deliver ascendance into beachfront repose. Armed with spa-specific superpowers, Ocean Palm’s expert staff administers a mammoth catalogue of services for all areas of the body. Superannuated snorkellers can nourish their brine-deficient bodies with a seaweed wrap—a one-hour marine-mineral-rich treatment that can improve circulation in limbs and dorsal fins alike ($95). Enjoy herbal exfoliation with a chamomile scrub, also an hour long and formulated to add lustre to even sensitive skin ($75). Ocean Palm also engineers skin elixirs for specialized preferences—for example, the 60-minute Beaute Neuve facial melds various berry acids to promote cellular revitalization and an appreciation of French New Wave cinema ($95).
