Stress-related outbursts can make those around you walk on eggshells, which engenders the far more stressful situation of not knowing what those eggshells hatched. Avoid avian mystery with today's Groupon: for $86, you get a custom spa package, including an exfoliation treatment, body wrap, therapeutic scalp treatment, and hot-stone massage, at Spa Theology (a $172 total value).
Spa Theology's expert massage therapists employ botanical balms and other luxurious products to refresh the body, relax the mind, and appease the spirit. This spa package, designed exclusively for Groupon customers, starts with an exfoliation treatment to eliminate dry skin, awaken the circulatory system, and stimulate lax lymph systems with statistics proving the importance of a healthy diet. Next, an antioxidant-rich body wrap hugs the hide with a soothing, softening medley of oils to quiet the mind and relax the body (a $65 value).
During a therapeutic scalp treatment, gifted fingers work essential oils into the noggin, rooting out tension and freeing good ideas trapped in the follicles (a $12 value). Finally, a 60-minute hot-stone massage melts away stress and thaws tendons, restoring muscular flow with smooth, warm river rocks positioned along the body and face (a $95 value)
Clients recline in warmly lit treatment rooms accented with wood tones and embellished with paintings, glass sculptures, and floral arrangements. Arrive 20 minutes early to don a plush robe, relish organic refreshments, and rally your pores with a George S. Patton speech in the spa's homey relaxation lounge. An additional 20 percent gratuity based on the package's original value is added to all Spa Theology packages.
As visitors to Spa Theology slip into plush robes and slippers and nibble organic treats in the relaxation lounge, stress falls away—so does the rest of the outside world. Evoking a secluded country farmhouse perpetually filled with warm, late-afternoon light and truckloads of all-organic crops, the spa spirits guests away to a realm of rough brick walls, creamy curtains, and recessed nooks glowing with tea lights. Once pamperees have reached at least a level eight on the ahhmeter, they're ushered into a treatment room to be plied with only botanically-based, paraben-free salves.
