Like carving a turkey while fettered by a Chinese finger trap, relieving muscle tension requires talented hands. Assuage subskin pressures with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get a Between Heaven & Earth massage package at Soluna Holistic Spa at its new home on East 103rd Street (a $125 value). The spa requires a gratuity of $20, which is not included in this Groupon.
The package includes:
- One 60-minute upper-body massage
- One 15-minute aromatherapy scalp massage
Soluna Holistic Spa’s licensed massage therapists melt muscles and miniaturize carbon footprints with certified organic products. Upon entering into the spa’s sanctuary, customers can sip home-brewed tea or fruit-infused water and feed hungry noses on air scented with jasmine, frankincense, and myrrh. Set inside a massage chamber filled with calming lighting, plants, and a medley of essential oils, the Between Heaven & Earth package commences with a 60-minute upper-body massage. A licensed massage therapist first consults with clients before unraveling knots via rhythmic, flowing strokes and incantations to a length of smooth rope. The 15-minute scalp massage employs piquant peppermint and rosemary essential oils to invigorate follicles with a refreshing tingle.
Soluna Holistic Spa
Soluna Holistic Spa's owner Susu features an array of soothing services conducted using only chemical-free and certified-organic products. The welcoming staff strives to leave a small carbon footprint as they tiptoe toward guests with a cup of herbal tea or fruit-infused water, setting a relaxing mood with the scents of jasmine and myrrh and soft lighting. In addition to relaxing Swedish and detoxifying aromatherapy lymphatic techniques, licensed massage therapists perform a variety of signature bodywork treatments.
In keeping with the spa's green philosophy, Susu revitalizes skin with the fruit- and herb-filled Éminence Organic Skin Care line during facials and peels. Patrons can absorb the spa's natural surroundings from the gazebo that looks out to a tranquil garden behind the spa—an ideal spot to perfect bird calls.
