The body stands up to gravity's bullying every day, while the mind and soul leisurely spend their time playing sudoku and filling up on chicken soup. Give your body its time to relax with today's Groupon: for $149, you get a five-person spa-party package at Serenity Spa and Massage (a $300 value). The package includes all of the following services for each person:
- A 30-minute essential pedicure
- A 25-minute classic manicure
- A brow or lip wax
- A 15-minute chair massage
Skilled stress-soothers at Serenity Spa and Massage banish everyday cares during 2.5-hour spa parties held in a warmly lit relaxation lounge full of soft reclining chairs. Gaggles of pals can bond during essential pedicures and classic manicures that groom and polish cuticles and nails. A few simple tugs shape unruly eyebrows to highlight the eyes or create a brow that's perpetually arched in suspicion, and wax can also de-fuzz upper lips to make way for handlebar milk moustaches. During chair massages, therapists ease tension out of shoulders and backs to prepare them to heft purses and piggybacking monkeys. Guests can also cozy up to a crackling fire while sipping hot tea, munching on lemon scones, and bobbing along to the soft music playing in the spa or in their head.
Serenity Spa and Massage
The relaxation lounge calls. It’s a special area at Serenity Spa and Massage where the staff encourages guests to spend time before or after their appointment. Here, clients lounge in a cozy chair in front of a crackling fire. Tea, coffee, or cucumber water wash down scones, while relaxing music washes down content read from a shelf of books. The idea behind the relaxation lounge is to further separate guests’ minds from such outside stress as work problems and the tiny gnome who follows them around all day, cackling in a 6-inch voice.
Of course, the appetizers or desserts aren’t why people frequent their favorite restaurant, and at Serenity Spa and Massage, the main course is as delicious as the soothing relaxation lounge experience. A four-person staff—pooling more than two decades of experience—renders a full slate of services, including massages, facials, and waxing. Specifically, the therapists might perform a deep-heat massage in which warm pads loosen muscles before the practitioner banishes aches and stiffness with relaxing strokes.
