If you've ever sat beside a roaring fire and wished its flame fingers would reach out and massage your aches and pains away, today's deal gives you all the warmth of a fire massage without the uncomfortable burns: for $30, you get one of three organic massages and an infrared sauna treatment at SpaKwus Organic Eco Spa (a $70 value).
SpaKwus bills itself as Vancouver's only award-winning organic spa, and it offers pristine pampering treatments for tired and tense city dwellers in its serene East Broadway space. Your Groupon is good for one of three 30-minute massage treatments ($40). For a medium-pressure uber-relaxing rub-down, opt for the detoxifying Swedish massage and allow the skilled therapist to melt away muscle aches and improve your internal blood and Faze magazine circulation. Or, choose a hot-stone massage and enjoy the added warmth of heated basalt stones sinking gently into your skin. Lost boaters looking for Lahaina will want to indulge in the LomiLomi massage, a Hawaiian rhythmic massage that uses the light pressure of thumbs, knuckles, forearms, and elbows to press away your worries and pains. No matter which massage you choose, a warm and relaxing infrared sauna treatment ($30) is included, wherein gentle heat waves penetrate into your body's cellular plane, loosening tight muscles and commanding calories and cellulite to evaporate into song.
The locally owned and operated spa uses only top-of-the-line, all-natural products to help patrons achieve a heightened state of relaxation and the prospect of becoming one with nature's offspring products. Call ahead for an appointment.
