Inaccessible to the hands, back musculature often falls prey to freeloading “kick me” signs and hitchhiking parrots. Liberate a beleaguered back with today’s Groupon to Quiescence Day Spa in Petaluma. The spa is open 10 a.m.–6 p.m. Wednesday–Sunday. Choose between the following options:
- For $40, you get a 60-minute rejuvenating massage with your choice of lavender or eucalyptus oil (an $80 value).
- For $55, you get a 90-minute hot-stone massage (a $110 value).<p>
Using all-natural body treatments, Quiescence Day Spa relaxes tightly strung tendons with an array of massage options. For 60 minutes, certified massage therapists knead dorsal musculature in rhythmic, circular patterns, rejuvenating sluggish circulatory systems into motion like a cowboy starting a horse’s ignition. Soothing eucalyptus or lavender oils augment the kneading strokes, infusing senses with aromatherapy scents, which enhance the massage’s destressing properties.
During the 90-minute hot-stone massage, smooth, warm stones ease muscle aches and chronic pain. The massage therapists’ knot-untying strokes relax stiff fibers and treat overworked backs to an invigorating tingle, resulting in a treatment more soothing than tryptophan bubble bath.
