A day at the spa provides the fastest way to recharge one's batteries outside of plugging tinfoil into outlets or eating cold-fusion cuisine. Replenish spent selves with today's Groupon: for $39, new members get up to 14 services over the course of one week at Planet Beach Contempo Spa (up to a $546 value).
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer a variety of beautification services. These friendly automatons facilitate everything from hydro massages and oxygen therapy to spray tanning and guided meditation sessions, during which serenity is uploaded directly to the brain. Each machine is designed for a specific service, which makes it the ultimate expert and keeps it from developing the ability to cry. Relax with Hydro-Derma Fusion treatments, sauna and SlimCapsule sessions, and luminous facials (each $39/session), all of which provide opportunities for sweating, moisturizing, and photoskinesis.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members pay for packages or flat monthly rates. With a week of services, this Groupon allows anyone to take advantage of Rube Goldberg–style beautification on his or her own time frame. A staff of helpful spa assistants is always on hand to answer questions, help first-timers use the machines, and keep things safe and comfortable. Call ahead to make appointments; services are subject to availability.
Planet Beach Contempo Spa
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray-tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
