Before battle, Samurai warriors gently exfoliated and deeply cleansed their pores so they could slay foes with one sexy glance. Become an aesthetic warrior with today's Groupon. For $50, you get $95 toward any massage therapy or aromatherapy at the Pittsburgh Center for Complementary Health and Healing, which was voted Best Spa in Pittsburgh by readers of Pittsburgh Magazine. Relieve the decades of stress that go hand-in-hand with birthing children, taking them to soccer practice, and dressing them until they’re 23 by slipping this Groupon into a deserving matriarch’s Mother’s Day card.
At the PCCHH, the most stressful moment is the arduous decision of choosing a muscle-melting massage or an anxiety-draining aromatherapy session. Therapeutic massages are performed by a skilled staff of wellness masters. Treatments run from $75 to $85 for 60 minutes or $90 to $105 for 75 minutes and cover a wide number of techniques that would make an interpretive dancer lay down their ribbons in shame. Shiatsu and acupressure massages put pressure on specific areas of the body, encouraging energy flow and relaxing stressors, while the classic Swedish massage stretches and mobilizes muscles, joints, and tendons until they’ve reached taffy consistency. In addition to multitudes of massages, the center offers aromatherapy escapes for the body, mind, and nostrils.
The Muscle Melt Aromatherapy Massage ($95–$130 depending on length) starts with a 15-minute foot soak in a mineral bath infused with Dead Sea salts and essential oils extracted from pixie dust and Pixy Stix, followed by a full-length therapeutic massage. The similarly soothing Lavender-Mint Aromatherapy Massage brings aromatic blasts of lavender and mint into the calming massage mix. Additional possibilities are the couple’s side-by-side massage and the Foot Reflexology & Peppermint Foot Treatment, among many others.
The cool, relaxed setting and personalized spaces at the PCCHH are designed to help clients get the most out of their spa experience, both emotionally and physically. PCCHH extends the wellness to the world around them through supporting the environment and other worthwhile causes. Pick up today’s Groupon and choose your path to relaxation, leaving your stress behind to mope around at home in its bathrobe.
