What You'll Get
While it doesn't provide the discomfort and high ticket prices associated with an airport pat-down, a massage is still an effective tool for discovering concealed knives and small firearms. Prove you’re not packing in the most relaxing way with today’s deal: for $35, you get an hour-long, personalized, elemental nature massage (an $80 value) at Origina Salon Spa, an Aveda ablution depot located in Franklin. Appointments are required, so call ahead.
Origina provides a tranquil environment for slow, steady muscle liquefaction. Moss-green walls and polished brown floors alongside bamboo plants and the trickle of a water fountain immerse customers in the atmosphere of a shady forest glen where recently excavated fish transform into beautiful maidens at regular intervals. After a member of Origina's highly trained staff guides you to a treatment room, they'll determine the needs of your unique musculature using a battery of inkblots, Zener cards, and Kobayashi Maru scenarios before treating you to 60 minutes of elemental nature massage. Let go of workday worries as a variety of massage techniques are kneaded into your weary inverse exoskeleton, and your favorite Aveda-brand aromas are woven into a glittering, ephemeral tapestry of calming smell-o-vision. Buy two Groupons and treat both your backs to a little luxuriating at Origina Salon Spa.
Nine Citysearchers give Origina Salon Spa five stars:
- I am a big fan of Origina; have been a client for about 6 mos. now and have tried a facial, massage, pedi, and numerous hair services. Not only is it a hip & trendy atmosphere, but the service has always been extremely friendly and professional. I've always been promptly greeted, offered a soda, and have great mags to read while I wait. – born2bblond

About Origina Salon and Spa
The artistic team at Origina Salon and Spa metamorphoses client style using Aveda's plant-based products. Before each hairstyling, staff members perform an in-depth consultation to assess each client's hair health, styling prowess, and favorite traffic sign before designing a custom cut. Small luxuries, such as a scalp massage during shampoos, elevate treatments to pampering sessions. Professional makeup specialists dispense lessons and tips as they paint faces with Aveda's pore-friendly products, whose hues change seasonally or based on the sun's mood. Personalized facials draw their restorative power not only from a custom blend of skincare products but also from facial massage, a combination of rejuvenating and relaxing pressure-point and Ayurvedic techniques. Many treatments, including waxing, incorporate essential-oil aromas tailored to calm the senses and soothe the skin. The salon's simple, organic aesthetic of warm-toned walls and wooden fixtures complements its philosophy of natural beauty and natural products.
