One great thing about the recession is that businesses are trying all sorts of cost savings measures to get you in the door. Here are two - for massages & pampering in San Francisco and San Jose.
Grace Massage & Bodyworks in San Jose is offering 60 minute treatments through Groupon for just $36. That includes Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, accupressure, shiatsu, reflexology, Thai medical or Japanese hot stone therapy. Even if you don't live in San Jose, it's worth a drive for a $36 treatment!
The treatment is good for a year, and you can buy two maximum - they'd make great Mother's Day gifts!!!
This deal expires in two days (they have an hourglass on there which shows how much time you have left to purchase).
Get the deal here at the Groupon site - if the link doesn't take you to the San Jose page, go to the top where it says "visit more cities," click on that, then click on "San Jose." It will come up.
Balance the Clinic - this is a London shop that just came to San Francisco. I hadn't heard of it before, but according to Groupon, it's a big deal there. They're offering a deal costing $55, which buys you $125 worth of treatments. Choose from an aromatherapy facial, Amino Body Wrap, an infrared sauna, massages, an exciting colonic hydrotherapy or a nutitional consult.
The deal is good for another two days, and the purchase is valid for a year.
Like all Groupons, they need to sell a certain number of these, so those who signed up get the deal. The number here is pretty high (125) but if this place is really the hots, they'll do it!
