Just like a nervous puppy, the human body tenses up when spooked by thunder, shut in a darkened garage, or confronted by a switchblade-wielding squirrel. Roll over and relax with today's Groupon: for $52, you get your choice of a one-hour massage (up to a $135.85 value) at Spa Já. Choose from a Swedish, deep-tissue, hot-stone, fusion, reflexology, or shiatsu massage.
The organic euphoria factory of Spa Já is renowned for its natural treatments, healing hands, and unyielding focus on long-term wellness. For 60 blissful minutes, the stressed, sore, and internally flummoxed can shuck off their aches and escape under the talented digits of Spa Já's massage therapists. A Swedish massage opens up rich, internal bank accounts of elation, as soothing mitts go from head to toe, kneading specific areas of discomfort (a $125.40 value). A deep-tissue massage uses greater pressure to make mincemeat of deep-rooted tangles, particularly sports-induced muscle tension (a $135.85 value). A hot-stone massage soothes worries with warm disks of penetrating heat, restoring muscles to a relaxed state (a $135.85 value), while the Spa Já original fusion massage combines the Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massage for a trifecta of felicity (a $135.85 value). Both the shiatsu (a $135.85 value) and reflexology (a $125.40 value) massages rely on ancient Asian pressure point manipulation, with the former focusing its energies along the length of the body, and the latter needling into hands and feet to treat bodily ailments ranging from neck pain to spaghetti elbows.

Visitors to Spa Ja pass beneath a black-and-red façade inspired by the wood-scrap decorations of favelas, or shanty towns, in founder Giovanna Kupfer’s native Brazil. Within the minimalist tiled interior, therapists wield exclusively organic products and natural treatments that can bolster whole-body wellness without invasive procedures such as force-feeding skin cells broccoli.
