Just because you're living on a budget doesn't mean you can't pamper yourself. It's all about making the most of your discretionary income. For me, that's exactly where Groupon comes into play. Groupon allows you to treat yourself, travel and create experiences without breaking the bank.
Last week there was a 25 percent discount on all Beauty and Spas services. I purchased quite a few ranging from mani/pedis to massages. The first to be redeemed would be at the Ocean Oasis Massage & Spa. The deal was a 50 minute reflexology massage with one upgrade for only $37! Can we say score?!
Located in Lake Worth, Florida the Ocean Oasis Massage was easy find with the use of my GPS on my phone. Being that the establishment is a renovated home turned spa was quite unique. Inside the kitchen area was the front office and waiting area. The living room consisted of a row of massage chairs for hand and foot services. The bedroom were reserved for full body massages and facials.
I arrived about 45 minutes early and happy to hear that my massasue was willing to take me upon arrival. As instructed I sat on a cushoned stool where I soaked my tiny feet in a warm foot bath with what I believe was epsom salt and welcomed a much needed shoulder and back massage.
Next I was asked to moved to the plush leather massage chair where I quickly found the setting of my liking. My upgrade, a salt scrub, came before the reflexology massage. I was forewarned that if the scrub was too abrasive to let my massaseu know. I found it more effective but not as gritty as I would have like.
The massage itself was absolutely heaven. Growing up I never liked for people to touch or look at my feet. Not quite a phobia. More so an annoyance if I had to label it. But in my eight years of teaching I welcome anyone willing to silence my barking dogs.
I believe in the healing properties of massage therapy but was skeptical of reflexology. This experience definitely made me a believer in all aspects of this ancient medicine. There were pressure points that were stimulated and I could even feel as he worked out knots of tension in my soles.
When the massage was over, I felt so relaxed that I had to take a moment before driving home. The walk to my car was as though I was walking on air. Like someone has removed dead weights from below my ankles.
Would I recommend the Ocean Oasis Massage and Spa to any in Palm Beach County area? You better believe I would. The atmosphere was both warm and inviting and my massage therapist was very kind.
FYI: When leaving tips for your massaseu, the perferred method is cash or you can use the in-house ATM (I don't have time for ATM fees).
and no. This is not a sponsored post. I wish it were but as of today, neither Groupon nor the Ocean Oasis Massage & Spa know anything about The Blogger Next Dior.
