Some say the secret to health is laughter, and others claim best results come from laughing into the buffing auger of a Zamboni. Restore your sense of well-being sans ice resurfacing with today's Groupon: for $110, you get a signature spa-day package—including a 50-minute aromatherapy or hot-stone therapy massage (up to a $120 value), a 30-minute reflexology treatment (a $75 value), The Oaks signature facial (a $105 value) with paraffin hand or foot treatment (a $40 value), eyebrow or lip waxing (up to a $15 value), and a cup of tea—at The Oaks Med Spa in League City (up to a $355 total value).
The Oaks' détente dispensers knead away tension with powerful hands and reveal youthful skin with clarifying treatments. The hot scents of essential oils caress olfactory tracts during a 50-minute aromatherapy massage, while the weighty warmth of strategically arranged stones melts knots, releasing backs from lingering tautness, in the hot-stone therapy massage. The 30-minute reflexology session reveals that the hipbone is connected to the hand, foot, and face as a therapist tactically activates pressure points on one to relax the others. Pores glow post-deep-cleansing from The Oaks signature facial's purifying face mask, which features a Pevonia Botanica corrective serum to bolster skin health. An accompanying paraffin application coats upper or lower mitts in a purifying wax glaze that repels unessential oils and lit matches. A further set of wax evicts stray hairs from the eyebrows or upper lip to reframe smiling eyes or mouths for prolonged ebullience.
