If you've ever sat beside a roaring fire, wishing its flame fingers would reach out and massage your aches and pains away, today's Groupon gives you all the warmth of a fire massage without the uncomfortable burns. Indulge your heat-seeking instincts at Ocean Reef Salon & Spa in Miami Beach. Choose between the following options:
• For $49, you get a one-hour hot-stone massage (a $125 value).
• For $75, you get a spa package consisting of a collagen facial treatment, eyebrow waxing, and mani-pedi (a $152 value).
Ensconced within the luxurious Ocean Reef hotel, Ocean Reef Salon & Spa's massage therapists run smooth basalt stones over tense bodies and hydrate faces to refresh complexions. During the hot-stone session, comforting heated rocks sympathize with stony shelves of muscle, dissolving stress before it creates fault lines that split the body into two floating halves. Soothing strokes aim to increase circulation, relieve pain, and balance energies.
Alternately, spa visitors can indulge in a day of pampering, enjoying mani-pedis that refashion nails into elegant tensomes and eyebrow waxing that renovates crumbling eye arches. Collagen facial treatments rejuvenate complexions, keeping faces as hydrated as the front of freshly watered clocks. Guests can kick back in rooms filled with art, letting their eyes drink in yellow-hued décor.
