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 $68, you get a 75-minute golden spoon facial (a $115 value) and a 30-minute deep-tissue massage (a $75 value) at Orient Retreat (a $190 total value). 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 obliterate stress and reveal glowing skin. During the 30-minute deep-tissue massage, a skilled therapist uses gentle strokes to loosen knots from muscular moorings, thus allowing the mind to drift away on stress-free seas. The tension-taming treatment awakens lymphatic circulation and prompts backs to feel free of aches and prepped to win upcoming limbo duels. The accompanying 75-minute golden spoon facial gently massages visages with alternating cold and warm currents from a pair of electrically charged, 23-karat spoons. The effects of the utensils' heating and cooling sensations can encourage quicker cell regeneration and increase elasticity. Following treatments, clients can take a break in the sauna or steam room or silence honking appetites with complimentary snacks and herbal tea.
