A day at the spa grants sweet respite from a fast-paced world of errands, deadlines, and books on tape read by auctioneers. Savor serenity without speediness, thanks to today’s Groupon: for $55, you get a half-day spa retreat at The Massage Spa in St. Petersburg (a $119 total value). The spa package includes:
- 60-minute relaxation or Swedish massage (a $44 value)
- European facial (a $50 value)
- Spa pedicure (a $25 value)<p>
At The Massage Spa, licensed therapists and aestheticians put together packages that allow clients to escape the stresses of everyday life for hours on end. The half-day fest commences with a one-hour massage that banishes tension from backpack carriers with even, soothing strokes and mollifies achy muscles with pinpointed pressure. Afterward, patrons slip into a relaxed reverie during a European facial as a licensed aesthetician exfoliates smile mantles, gently scrubbing away outdated cells until faces shine like a disco ball at a prom for disco balls.
After a skin analysis and a warm steam to open pores, face whisperers bedeck epidermises in a specialized mask that nourishes skin cells. Beauticians then slather treatment creams onto visages, locking in hydration and evicting lingering tension and fake soul patches. Aestheticians also trim, shape, and file nail tips to ready them for a final splash of color.
