Relaxation is one of the elemental forces that keeps human bodies alive, alongside air, water, fire, and antifire. Ease into your element with today's Groupon: for $105, you get an aromatherapy massage and marine-therapy facial (a $250 value) at Orient Retreat. Today’s Groupon is valid at the Scarborough, Mississauga, or Richmond Hill locations.
A women-only day spa, Orient Retreat merges Asian healing practices with European spa environs to unladen ladies of stress sacks and worry bundles. During the deep-tissue aromatherapy massage, a skilled massage therapist uses gentle strokes and organic essential oils to loosen knots from muscle moorings, allowing the body to drift away on stress-free seas ($130).
The accompanying marine-therapy facial shellacs visages in a moisturizing mask composed of all-natural ingredients, creating a luminous look that solidifies the face's status as the crowning glory of any human pyramid ($120). Following either treatment, clients can take a break in the sauna or steam room, or ponder the benefits of the latest celebrity-squirrel diet over complimentary snacks and herbal tea.
