Without the loosening effects of massage, shoulders would stiffen into immobility and fall victim to freeloading parrots and the burden of carrying Earth's heavyset brother, Girth. Pamper your perches with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a spa package at The Spa at 22 Changes in Vancouver, WA (an $87 total value). The spa package includes:
- A 60-minute well-being massage (a $72 value)
- A 20-minute infrared-sauna treatment (a $15 value)
The seasoned staff at The Spa at 22 Changes submerses clients in services that relax muscles and improve mood. The infrared healing sauna harbors clients for 20 minutes so they can soak up heat and expel toxins. In contrast to traditional saunas, which warm the body via air or steam, the infrared sauna causes the skin to absorb heat directly, making treatments more comfortable for guests who have a low tolerance for high temperatures or chefs steaming broccoli. During the well-being massage, adroit fingers knead muscles to a peaceful paste, using careful strokes to relieve tension and stress. The spa recommends that visitors arrive 15 minutes before their scheduled appointment to check in and make sure they remembered to bring their bodies.
The Spa at 22 Changes
In a private treatment room at The Spa at 22 Changes—a 5,000 square-foot salon and spa retreat—a massage therapist kneads, rolls, and taps bamboo sticks across a client's back during a bamboo massage, relieving tension and checking to see which parts of the spine work best as a xylophone. Among other soothing services, infrared-sauna treatments help guests detoxify, ease stress and pain, and boost circulation. The aestheticians on staff perform waxing and facials, while manicures, pedicures, and hair services are also available.
