What You'll Get

Getting a massage is the best way to relieve the feeling of pins and needles in your body, other than quitting your job as a human pincushion. Free yourself of prods and pricks with today's Groupon: for $69, you get the Summer Siesta massage package, including a back massage, an aromatherapy body scrub, and a foot massage at Serenity Day Spa in Flossmoor (a $140 value).
At the quiet and serene Serenity Day Spa, the qualified, kind staff give a cluster of different massages, including a relaxing, 75-minute Summer Siesta spa session. Massage therapists start by placing soothing heat packs on aching legs before a calming, 30-minute back massage, which kneads sore back muscles like a chef rolling out cookie dough. Next is a 30-minute tranquil body scrub using skin-healthy shea butter with customized aromatherapy scents, leaving you as relieved and slippery as an Olympic swimmer coming up for air. A 15-minute peppermint foot massage puts a tingly feeling of little candy cane elves dancing on your toes.
Each customer gets a peaceful, private room with a painting portraying an outdoor scene such as a green garden, creating your own little timeless world where you imagine lying in green cut grass watching fluffy ballerina clouds.
