While it doesn't provide the discomfort and high ticket prices associated with an airport pat-down, a relaxing visit to a spa is still an effective tool for discovering concealed knives and small firearms. Prove you’re not packing in the most relaxing way with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get one-hour Swedish massage (a $60 value) or European deep-pore-cleansing facial (a $70 value) at The Chopping Block Day Spa and Salon.
Tired and tense bodies will enjoy The Chopping Block's relaxing hour-long Swedish massage, with a licensed massage therapist. Swedish massage, a light- to medium-pressured technique, is the most popular type of knead. It uses long, connective strokes and kneading to melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché. Or, if long hours conducting commuter trains have left your skin sullied and sallow, opt for the European deep-pore-cleansing facial. One of The Chopping Block's licensed aestheticians will slough off dead skin cells with a thorough exfoliation, extract unsightly dermal invaders, and apply a specialized mask to the skin, all while your hands heat up in warming mitts. As the mask sets, your hands are removed from the mitts and joined with the décolleté area for a soothing massage, and when the treatment is complete, the aesthetician will provide you with a personalized skin analysis and tips on how to hold your head to more prominently feature your "best side."
Tucked away in a yellow two-story house on a quiet, tree-lined street in St. Matthews, the nearly 25-year-old salon provides a perfect setting for a scheduled day of relaxation. Drag your tired and weary body down to The Chopping Block as a reward for finally finishing that quilt depicting the 1984 Louisville Cardinals basketball squad. Call ahead for an appointment.
