Spending a day at a spa is a tranquil experience surpassed only by swimming in a pool filled with mashed potatoes or having a hand model slap you to sleep. Revive worn-out selves with today's Groupon: for $59, you get either a 75-minute lavender body-wrap treatment or a 75-minute lavender massage at Urbàna Cityspa & Teabar (a $120 value).
Urbàna Cityspa, which has been featured in Southern Living, Pulse, and Skin Inc., is a posh oasis of relaxation wherein guests unwind in themed rooms under the care of an experienced staff member. Stress starts to ebb away as patrons sip on complimentary lavender-chamomile tea while waiting in lounge or sitting at the tea bar. The whisper room bathes visitors in soft, soothing colors, while the midnight rooms dim the lighting for deeper rejuvenation and better display of one's glow-in-the-dark tattoos. During the lavender body-wrap treatment, a technician cleanses skin with a lavender wash, followed by fragrant lavender-steamed towels, and a moisturizing lavender body mask. The lavender aromatherapy massage consists of a skilled massage therapist massaging lavender shea butter into weary muscles, and swaddling bodies with steamed towels to eliminate tension as effectively as cutting the rope during a tug-o'-war contest. The therapist customizes each massage, focusing on specific aches and pains that the client has pinpointed on a consultation prior to treatment.
Urbàna Cityspa & Teabar's spa environment features a New York–style loft space with clean lines and a flowingly sculpted lighting fixture on the ceiling. Music streams through a sound system to vibrate residual tension out of the eardrums and make the sensory stimulation complete. At the in-house tea bar, brewers steep handpicked, imported loose-leaf teas, many of which are organic and fair-trade, and also dispense a variety of wine, champagne cocktails, and appetizers available for purchase.
