Like fine marble statues, human bodies must be touched up on a regular basis lest their surfaces dull, their north sides moss, and their forearms fall off. Lavish your life vehicle with today's Groupon: for $55, you get a one-hour massage (a $75 value) and a 30-minute body scrub (a $35 value) at Pura Vida Day Spa in Laguna Niguel (a $110 total value).
Pura Vida Day Spa houses a beautifying battalion of massage-therapy specialists and skincare consultants who indulge patrons with treatments designed to relax and rejuvenate the body's natural wetsuit. Mitigate worn-out body dough with a one-hour Pura Vida massage, a Swedish-style kneading that strives to ease anatomical tension with long, gentle strokes. Dead skin cells are exfoliated with a half-hour body scrub, which moisturizes and conditions human hides to a sheen normally reserved for Greco-Roman wrestlers tangling in a sauna.
Pura Vida surrounds its guests with warm tones and cushy treatment beds. These atmospheric touches work hard to convey the sentiment of the spa's namesake, which means "pure life" in Costa Rica and "nice speeder bike" on the planet Endor.
