Relaxing at a day spa is akin to being gently rocked to sleep by lapping waves and then waking up as a jellyfish. Enjoy ethereal sensations with today's Groupon: for $38, you get a 30-minute pumpkin-enzyme facial or a 30-minute pumpkin-spice massage with a complimentary glass of cider or champagne at The Spa on Oak, located in two adjoining suites on Oak Street (a $79 value).
The Spa on Oak's experienced aestheticians and massage therapists beautify and relax physiques in a tranquil environment augmented by autumn scents and a complimentary glass of cider or champagne. The 30-minute pumpkin-enzyme facial begins with a personalized skincare consultation during which faces air complaints about rough patches, blemishes, and misfired toothbrush strokes. Skin sleuths then speedily exfoliate away rough outer layers with scrubs composed of aromatic pumpkin enzyme, creating a smooth palette for a moisturizing session that reveals a reinvigorated facial canvas.
Those who opt for the pumpkin-spice cream massage can free muscles of underlying aches with the gliding strokes and kneading of a licensed massage therapist. The spicily scented treatment helps to boost circulation while alleviating tension often sourced from rigidity knots and schoolyard taunts plaguing the muscles' connective tissue.
