Faces, like khakis and the space-time continuum, look their best when wrinkle-free. Iron out head creases with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a customized facial plus a lymphatic drainage massage at Ridgely Retreat in Annapolis (a $90 value).
Ridgely Retreat soothes and strengthens frontispieces with the customized European facial, a hydrating treatment that relaxes skin and renews frazzled complexions more effectively than dipping your head in a bucket of butterscotch pudding. This one-hour treatment utilizes vitamin C to combat aging and fend off free radicals. During a lymphatic drainage massage—included with the facial—bodies are coaxed into increasing lymph flow, which can help immune systems work more effectively and return a sunshiny feeling to your body non-intravenously.
Inside an unassuming brick building, Ridgely Retreat takes its name seriously. The multifaceted spa, wellness center, and yoga studio offers mental escapes in the form of hot-stone massages and meditation classes as well as physical relief in the form of acupuncture and chiropractic services. The eclectic yoga offerings range from gentle and Vinyasa classes to yoga dance, wine-and-cheese yoga, children’s yoga, and the newly added aerial yoga. On the spa side, services such as glycolic peels and Fraxel laser resurfacing flaunt a modern edge, though the cherry-blossom facial, detox body wrap, and warm bamboo treatment let clients experience the kind of classic relaxation enjoyed by hedonistic pandas the world over.
