Booking your body double a beautifying treatment at a tranquil day spa creates a soundproof alibi for days spent stealing office supplies from the White House. Make your stand-in stand out and replace your tape with presidential seals with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a half-hour massage, a 10-minute aromatherapy steam, and a hand paraffin treatment (a $60 value) at Spartas Mini-Spa on 12th Street.
Spartas infuses serenity into peaceful patrons with relaxing, therapeutic treatments. Nullify nagging knots and kinks in bone-and-muscle storage devices by appeasing them with the soothing strokes of a massage ($35) instead of rubbing them with a homemade apple pie. The detoxifying aromatherapy steam ($10) cleanses dirt, grime, and oil from the pores while softening the skin. A hand paraffin treatment ($15) exfoliates dead skin cells from hardworking phalanges with the Beauticontrol instant manicure and softens appendage ends with a repair cream. Multiple layers of paraffin are then applied to make hands silky smooth and ready for glove fittings or afternoons spent shaving coconuts.
