Spa escapes help rejuvenate and renew your current appearance, unlike prison escapes, which require one to assume the identity of a bumbling security guard. Loosen the chains of a stressful lifestyle with today's Groupon: for $20, new members get one week of unlimited spa services (up to a $250 value) at Planet Beach Contempo Spa's Southwest 34th St. or West University Ave. location.
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. These friendly automatons facilitate everything from hydro massages and oxygen therapy to spray tanning and luminous facials. Each machine is designed for a specific service, which makes it the ultimate expert and keeps it from developing the ability to cry. Advanced spa services, such as hydro-derma fusion, sauna time, hydro massage ($39 per session), and luminous facials ($39 per session) provide opportunities for sweating, moisturizing, and photoskinthesis.
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.
