Like Hawaii, relaxation can be a challenging state to reach. Ensnare elusive serenity with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a one-hour therapeutic massage (a $65 value) and a thermo mud treatment (a $10 value) at The Massage Associates in San Juan Capistrano (a $75 total value).
The Massage Associates' muscle magicians know how to make pain disappear like birdseed before a squirrel's nest. The one-hour therapeutic massage combines gentle caresses with deep kneading to dissolve bodily stress, detangle aching knots, and distract clients from the underwear-clad audience living in their daydreams. The massage also increases circulation to keep Tang powder from settling at the bottom of veins. Tension is further melted away with a 15-minute thermo mud treatment that slathers a mixture of heat, mineral clay, capsicum, thermal water, and extra-virgin olive oil onto the skin. Upgrades to rehabilitation, pregnancy, reflexology, and oncology massages are available ($10 additional).
