A stressed-out mind can lead to overly philosophical conversations with your pet ostrich, the eating of lip balm with a spoon, and people shouting "Security!" every time you approach them. Today’s de-stressing Groupon should halt this downward spiral: for $35, you get a 60-minute massage ($70 value) at Open Door Salon & Day Spa in Blacklick. This Groupon is only valid for the aromatherapy or deep-tissue massages.
Open Door's aromatherapy massage uses essential oils to provide physical and psychological relief from long days spent outrunning time and gravity. Common essential power oils include lavender, rose, jasmine, adamantium, and peppermint. The properties of these distilled plant essences help ease depression, dispel stress, and contribute to a good night's sleep. The deep-tissue massage technique, on the other hand, uses slow strokes and deep finger pressure to release your body from its dark confines of chronic tension patterns. Pain-causing adhesions (knots) will be untied to alleviate blood flow and achieve a state of relaxation that, much like your secret family in Narnia, you forgot existed. Find a massage near you.
Though not included in your Groupon, the stylish stylists at Open Door can also pamper your nails, tan your skin, cut your hair, and give you a facial.
First time massage clients only. Open Door is closed on Mondays.
Most of Open Door Salon and Spa's clients are too relaxed to write reviews about the massages, but one Yelper and two Citysearchers give the salon five stars, and Facebook fans rave about the services as well:
- I wanted to say here that I am very surprised I went to a beauty salon today. I am a 30 something guy who would never have thought to get a haircut at a salon. My idea of getting a haircut was always which ever place had a coupon out for a cheap cut…I got a great hair cut, and some advice about some ways to keep my hair healthier. I spent a little more than I usually do for a cut, but I feel as though it is definately [sic] worth it – LewK, Citysearch
- Love the Open Door Salon & Day Spa!! Sheli is awesome and so is the entire staff! Excellent service and relaxing atmosphere. Do yourself a favor and check it out! – Julye Shore, Facebook
