Smell is tied closely to one's memory, which is why every tiny face in a yearbook can be scratched and sniffed to give off the unique scent of each classmate. Remember the good times with today’s Groupon: for $55, you get The Relaxation Package (a $115 value) at ReNew Therapeutic Massage Center, located in Rockville, Maryland. The package includes an aromatherapy massage with a hand- or foot-softening treatment.
During The Relaxation Package, ReNew Therapeutic Massage Center’s professional practitioners target pent-up tension with holistic massage and natural, eco-friendly products. During an aromatherapy massage, therapeutic-grade essential oils waft calming fragrance into the air, helping to alleviate stress and the lingering aroma of old birthday-cake candles. A massage therapist’s long, smooth strokes deliver light to medium pressure throughout the body, tenderly dislodging knots, helping improve muscle tone, and focusing on numerous bodily ailments, including whiplash and migraines. Tired after playing with footballs or high-fiving goal posts, hands or feet receive a sheath of 100% natural, soy-based paraffin alternative that aims to hydrate and soften exhausted epidermises. Warm herbal wraps accompany the vitamin-E-rich emollient, which also contains Mother Nature-approved substances such as jojoba, coconut oil, shea butter, and the sappy tears of a sequoia.
