Though pursued throughout history, the Fountain of Youth lost its appeal when explorers who hopped into its waters were immediately kicked out for adult swim. Turn back just enough time with today’s Groupon: for $62, you get a spa package (a $167.50 value) at The Body Work & Massage Source. The package includes the following:
- 30-minute mini facial (a $60 value)
- 30-minute aromatherapy body wrap (a $70 value)
- 30-minute Swedish massage (a $37.50 value)</p>
All Groupon users must make appointments before redeeming. The Body Work & Massage Source recommends booking two weeks in advance for the best availability.
The licensed massage therapists at The Body Work & Massage Source reduce muscle tension and soothe the senses with customized massages and services augmented by aromatherapy. During the 30-minute mini facial, a deep-cleansing treatment liberates pores from impurities and hydrates faces for skin as smooth as a freshly steamrolled silk shirt. Technicians draw from a cadre of essential oils to create a 30-minute aromatherapy body wrap that drenches skin in moisture. As the oils seep into the skin, stresses evacuate the mind, establishing a peaceful mood unfettered by nagging worries about leaving the oven light on. Massage therapists perform flowing effleurage strokes during the 30-minute Swedish massage, interspersing its circulation-boosting pressure with medium-strength strokes to eradicate muscle knots.
Though The Body Work & Massage Source sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
The Body Work & Massage Source
A native of rural Lithuania, Laima Baikauskaite was named the USSR’s fastest runner in 1974. In 1988, she strutted her stuff at the Seoul summer games, taking home a silver medal in the 1,500-meter race. Soon after, she moved to the US where, inspired by the expert massages she and her fellow top-tier athletes enjoyed, she opened The Body Work & Massage Source.
Today, Laima calls upon her firsthand understanding of massage's impact, as well as the love of nature she cultivated as a child. She uses natural products in her treatments and adorns her practice with plants that remind her of her rural upbringing. Inside this outdoors-inspired oasis, visitors bask in facials, massages, and body wraps, which they can schedule online. Peels reveal glowing skin; seaweed, paraffin, and hot stones nourish bodies while dissolving tension; and aromatherapy soothes nostrils by asking them about last night’s dreams.
