Like house parties, massages give people an excuse to forget about everyday stresses and fall asleep on someone else’s table. Attend a fettle-ready fiesta with today’s Groupon: for $89, you get a spa package at The Retreat Salon & Day Spa in Dublin (a $215 total value). The package includes the following:
- A 30-minute specialty pumpkin salt scrub (a $125 value)
- A 60-minute full-body massage and pumpkin body butter hydrating treatment (a $90 value)<p>
The Retreat Salon & Day Spa’s talented massage therapists help to relieve everyday stresses with relaxing, ambrosial services. After a 15-minute check-in for enjoying complimentary beverages, patrons recline on cushy massage tables as their senses surrender to an aromatic onslaught of scrubbing salts. Harnessing the olfactory excitement of an ocean-side pumpkin-pie-eating contest, deft hands scrub pumpkin-infused sea salt soothingly along skinscapes. The salt exfoliates the skin while simultaneously imbuing it with a cornucopia of autumnal nutrients. Bodies are then burritoed in steamy towels, wiping away leftover salt to reveal the newly smoothed skin beneath before a massage therapist administers a full-body 60-minute massage, followed by a 15-minute body butter hydrating treatment in your choice of specialty scent. Over the course of 75 minutes, an expert repertoire of gentle strokes and kneading relieves muscular aches and tendon-borne tension. A variety of additional scents are available to substitute for pumpkin, such as mandarin-honey & white tea, almond butter, and chocolate raspberry.

Classical touches add a note of elegance to the luxurious spa experience at the The Retreat Salon & Day Spa. Wearing decadently fluffy robes, guests wander from candlelit massage rooms to relax with fresh-baked cookies and homemade yogurt-and-fruit parfaits topped with granola in front of the spa’s crackling fireplace. Elsewhere, expert estheticians treat fingers and toes to nutrient-rich manicures and pedicures, utilizing wonders such as almond butter, oranges and honey, mineral salt, and distilled whisper-concentrate.
