Talented sculptors can make a man out of marble, a swan out of ice, and a functioning defibrillator out of cotton candy. Turn your body into a finely chiseled work of art with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get a Tips and Toes package, including an upper-body massage, body scrub, and hand or foot paraffin dip with minimassage, at Relaxation Station, located in Wauwatosa (a $100 value).
Relaxation Station offers simple spa treatments that nurture the mind and body, much like a lotion container that recites poetry. Enjoy a 30-minute upper-body massage with medium to deep pressure, squeezing stress from the neck, back, shoulders, arms, hands, and scalp like juice from an uptight lemon. A hot paraffin wax softens hands or feet; then fingers or toes are touched at various reflexology points to free pent-up tension and mischievous spirits. After the muscles are fully melted, the skin is soothed with a salt-and-sugar body scrub, then wrapped in hot, moist towels and a mylar spa blanket for a seven-minute roasting that exfoliates the epidermis, opens plugged pores, and fully reheats frozen meals.
Relaxation Station bills itself as an alternative to the garish wallpaper and crowded lobbies of some other spas, providing an uncrowded, quiet environment where stress is massaged away. In a private environment, Relaxation Station’s massage therapists identify and correct the underlying causes of discomfort, whether they're caused by old sports injuries or frequent naps atop a pile of gold and bones. Clients can enjoy comfortable temperatures and muted colors in each of Relaxation Station’s rooms, where they may drink Teavana tea or Oliver wines.
