Heat is an essential part of life, making food more edible and keeping the sun from turning into a moon. Preserve the laws of thermodynamics with today's Groupon: for $29, you get three 40-minute infrared-sauna sessions (a $98 value) at The Chocolate Day Spa in Costa Mesa. The infrared sauna is said to provide a host of benefits, from stress relief and increased circulation to detoxification and weight loss. Penetrating heat delves deep into muscle tissue, expanding stodgy blood vessels to reduce pain from muscle spasms or joint stiffness and increasing flexibility, range of motion, and invisibility. The infrared saunas at The Chocolate Day Spa also come with a Chromotherapy Light System, which harnesses the therapeutic power of light and color as if using a rainbow for a deep-tissue massage. Infrared-sauna therapy may not be for everyone; please check the list of medical warnings on the website for details.
The Chocolate Day Spa was selected by 994 magazine as one of its top picks for spa treatments. Nine Yelpers give it an average rating of 4.5 stars. Three Citysearchers give The Chocolate Day Spa a perfect five-star rating.
The Chocolate Day Spa
Once cited as a Spa to Get the Red Carpet Treatment in the Editor’s Pick section of 944 Magazine, The Chocolate Day Spa indulges its clients with spa services as decadent as a box of chocolate truffles. During a whoopie-cream massage, the spa’s signature shea-butter lotion softens skin and prevents friction as the massage therapist applies gentle pressure and performs gliding strokes. A treat for the senses, the chocolate-scented massage immerses clients in the aroma of cocoa to save them the trouble of visiting the great chocolate lakes of Appalachia. The spa even takes the guilt out of the indulgence it encourages by providing such slimming treatments as infrared-sauna sessions and Endermologie treatments. Inside the med spa, laser light works to lift faces, tighten eyes, and plump lips, and Botox and Juvéderm reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
