Indulge in spa specials in April

When the group-gets-a-deal site kicked into gear around Metro Detroit recently, I was excited to see what all the hype was about. I logged in for free and now receive daily messages detailing available discounts of at least 50 percent at metro area businesses. I’ve seen everything from rock climbing to smoothies available for a steal. My first Groupon experience – a full hour long Swedish massage at Revolution Wellness Center in Shelby Township was a hit. Last weekend, I paid $25 for a relaxing service that retails for $60. I left feeling refreshed and ready to start the week.

Today’s deal sounds equally as appealing. Those interested in slendering down before bikini weather officially hits may want to purchase a Groupon for Instafirm Body Wraps – the $125 service in Troy is going for $55 but you have to act fast!

If Groupon just isn’t your thing, but you’re looking for an affordable spa treatment – for you or to give as a gift – Birmingham-based Avalon Salon & Spa has announced it’s April deal. And it’s a good one.

Make an appointment Monday-Friday in April and you’re eligible for an hour-long Swedish massage and an hour-long Replenishing Facial for a total of $110. It regularly costs $160. I can say from previous experience the Replenishing Facial is one of the most comforting spa experiences around. I’m a sucker for an Aveda concept salon, too, so to me, the natural plant-based products smell heavenly.

Do you have a favorite area spa or spa service? Tell me about it.

    I’ve been to Carol Lewis Day Spa in Birmingham, and I LOVED it! It has a very soothing atmosphere and nice staff.
