Hippocrates discovered the therapeutic qualities of seawater by noticing the healing affects it had on the fishermen's injured hands and wounds caused by irreverent white whales. Take part in ancient healing rites with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a spa day pass to Rock Barn Golf & Spa in Conover (a $50 value).
Rock Barn Golf & Spa's recreational resort and 20,000-square-foot day spa survey a rolling golf course from its place in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Soak away stress in a mineral pool, a modern take on ancient Roman baths, as underwater music floats into aural canals like pretension floats into conversations about other people's children. Knead out stress and toxins with a therapeutic waterfall, massaging gently from its gravity-inducing rock face.
An outdoor whirlpool and fireplace pamper and warm guests, and an amenity-ridden locker room is outfitted with saunas and steam rooms that increase body temperature while improving circulation and removing heavy metals such as microbial commuter trains. Tread over flagstone floors past textured walls and reflective works of art to rest wrinkled fingers on plush, wrought-iron-framed settees as spa-goers continue synchronized-swimming to subaquatic jams.
