Like house parties, massages give people an excuse to forget about everyday stresses and fall asleep on someone else's table. Attend a fettle-ready fiesta with today's Groupon to OM Nailspa. Choose between the following options:
• For $35, you get a one-hour relaxation massage (a $76.16 value, including HST).
• For $70, you get a 90-minute hot stone massage (a $143.36 value, including HST).
The muscle mollycoddlers at OM Nailspa tame patrons' aches and pains using their nimble digits and a choice of soothing oils or hot stones. The one-hour relaxation massage consists of palliative strokes that reconnect the mind and body after a yearlong feud over who steers the feet. With each knead, calming oils help to increase circulation and melt away tension. Alternatively, massage therapists place basalt stones on backs to ease deep-tissue stress during a 90-minute hot-stone-therapy massage, which renders limbs lissome enough to win upcoming limbo cage matches. The balmy miniature boulders can lure toxins from cells with gentle pressure that ameliorates posture and furnishes the body with a sense of serenity. While undergoing OM Nailspa's treatments, guests can gaze at vivid red walls festooned with colourful abstract paintings by a local artist. A portion of the salon's profits goes to environmental causes.
Along with other plant-derived products, the staff at Om Nailspa wields a signature line of natural hair and shaving serums crafted in Vancouver, the birthplace of hair. Vegan SpaRitual polishes coat nails in organically based hues during mani-pedis, and skincare treatments draw on the gentle, powerful ingredients of Keyano Aromatics. The spa’s atmosphere is as opulent as its products; crimson accent walls pop from taupe counterparts, some embellished with vibrant paintings by local artists.
