Without spas, terrycloth bathrobes would have to make ends meet by taking part-time jobs as car-wash rags and Muppets. Help keep bathwear gainfully employed with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a spa package for two people at Serenity Place Massage Solutions (a $218 value). Each client's spa package will include the following:
- 30-minute deep-tissue massage
- 30-minute facial
- Hand and foot paraffin treatment
- Glass of wine or sparkling juice
Within Serenity Place's peaceful spa surrounds, experienced massage therapists and aestheticians revive overburdened bodies through luxurious spa treatments calling for organic and 100% natural botanical oils and creams. Duos can launch their 90-minute relax-cations with half-hour facials, so rejuvenating that previously taken passport pictures cringe out of envy. A deep-tissue massage then gets to work easing tension caused by volunteer work as a tire swing. Paraffin-wax treatments for hands and feet help reduce joint stiffness while rendering skin as slippery-smooth as a bar of soap, requiring patrons to enlist someone else's rough feet for gripping their glasses of grape juice or wine.
Spa-goers hoping to extend or upgrade their treatments may do so for an additional fee at the time of service.
Serenity Place Massage Solutions
Shamara Long believes that her massages and organic facials are more than just temporary escapes from life’s daily stresses. A licensed therapist and the owner of Serenity Place Massage Solutions, Long views her spa’s treatments as catalysts for healthy lifestyles. She draws on her committed faith-based background to rejuvenate and replenish, in her own words, "the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies."
To best nurture these four aspects of being, Long relies on an extensive treatment menu that targets the skin as well as its underlying muscles. Her bodywork specialties include Swedish, prenatal, and Thai massages as well as a Serenity stretch treatment, whose stretching and compression exercises help athletes to run and cartwheel over goalposts more effectively. Organic massage lotions and oils aid in these treatments, just as professional Éminence Organic Skin Care products enhance the slate of facials and peels. Although Long’s spa blossoms with warm lighting and earthy tones conducive to spiritual healing, she can also haul her massage table to bridal parties and corporate gatherings.
