Though it doesn't provide the discomfort and high ticket prices associated with an airport pat-down, a massage is still an effective tool for discovering concealed knives and small firearms. Prove you’re not packing in the most relaxing way with today’s Groupon: for $64, you get a Complete Escape spa package, which includes a body massage, scalp and foot treatment, and a facial at Therapeutic Massage & Bodyworks (a $129 value).
Therapeutic Massage & Bodyworks' team of licensed massage therapists and aestheticians placate skin-aches and muscle maladies. Helmed by veteran back rehabber Jamie Marcello, the staff stands in wait to ease nervous pores and soften tissue into a state of floppy relaxation. During the full-body massage, an able masseuse's hands make quick work of muscular knots and subdermal cramps, leaving internal sinews feeling springy and synapses firing funfetti at each other. Extra attention is given to the tension-hoarding feet and scalp, with special pressure-point techniques used to divest them of stress. Rounding out the gauntlet of tranquility is the hydrating facial, which restores the appearance of youth with a combination of exfoliation, collagen treatment, and a spooky visit by Ponce de León’s animatronic ghost.
Ashlee Lowery at Balanced Massage Therapy
“Pamper Yourself," two words stamped in gold that command all who enter Ashlee Lowery at Balanced Massage Therapy' domain, asway with lush greenery. With this mandate always in mind and therapeutic scents lingering in the air, ice-cold goblets of lemon water or steaming cups of herbal tea comfort guests losing themselves in the fireplace’s warm, flickering ballet. Gentle exhalations stir the still air, raising scents that hint at fistfuls of rose petals and fruit-based masks that harness the same natural powers as the fine mud and fresh avocados enhancing the salon’s full-body treatments. A reliance on the bounty of Mother Nature carries through into massage treatments that use warm seashells to chase away stress. Skincare and body waxing are performed by licensed aestheticians who hold secondary certification in zamboni operation.
