All animals interact through pampering, from the spiky barnacles that exfoliate the hides of celebrity narwhals to the mynah birds who shiatsu the spines of stressed-out rhinos. Enjoy the highly evolved pampering skills of humans with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get an essential pedicure and an express massage (a $140 total value) at The I Spa at the InterContinental San Francisco.
Delivering an elegant and elevated adventure above the SoMa streets, The I Spa brings peace, love, and understanding back to tired limbs and extra zazz to lusterless exteriors. An essential pedicure (a $65 value) cossets shoe-stuffers with essential-oil extracts and a warm, soothing footbath before dirt and dead cells are exfoliated into a hypothetical state of semi-existence. The 50-minute treatment employs warm paraffin to soften skin and a leg massage to mollify crabby muscles, and toe canvases are fully groomed before being slathered in pretty paint. Augment the foot bliss by indulging your muscles with a 30-minute express massage (a $75 value), which uses Swedish techniques to restore humanity to nanorobot-infested circulation and goodwill to sore spots.
Along with de-stressifying treatments, today’s deal affords you access to the InterContinental’s fitness equipment, sky terrace, and indoor pool during your visit.
The I Spa at the InterContinental Hotel
The scents of eucalyptus, lavender, and sandalwood linger in the air at The I Spa. These fragrances eventually make their way into massages that cater to individual aches and pains with techniques drawn from 10 distinct modalities. In addition to massages, The I Spa pampers guests with skin- and body-care treatments, manicures and pedicures, waxing, and hair and makeup services. Regardless of the treatment, it’s not difficult to relax amidst the spa’s tile walls, gauzy curtains, and tropical flowers.
