Discount Aromatherapy Massage

November 9, 2011 by  
Filed under Services, Spas & Health

Get $20 off an Aroma Massage including foot soak and foot paraffin dip. Mmm… I smell a good deal and (as usual) I could also use some relaxation.

George Ramos is a Licensed Massage Therapist, Certified Aromatherapist, and Cosmetologist and he told us about an introductory offer he’s running at Total B Concepts.

Through the end of 2011, you can get a $20 discount on an hour’s Aroma Massage, which includes a free Aroma Foot Soak and Foot Paraffin Dip. That means a 60-minute Aroma Massage costs $35 instead of the regular $55.

He’s also discounting a 90-minute Aroma Massage by $10, making it $65 instead of the usual $75.

George tells us ” I use only organic body oils and you can choose your own organic essential oil to add to the massage oil.”

I love aromatherapy and instantly relax at the first sniff of lavender oil. Mr Cheap has been known to wave it around under my nose when I’m freaking out on a deadline. He’s like a horse whisperer, although the average horse is probably less temperamental and easier to soothe than yours truly.

The discount is available on appointments through December 31, 2011, and Total B Concepts is located Downtown at 609 Gold Avenue SW, Suite 2F. To make an appointment call George Ramos on (505) 750-1498.

Note: As with all service providers, especially in the wellbeing area, we don’t endorse any particular business, we just report the deals. It’s up to the customer to check out services for suitability.

Comments Off on Half Price Massage: September

Last chance to get 50% off massage in the month of September!  We mentioned this massage deal at the beginning of the month, and there’s still time for a little therapy that’ll relax your wallet too. But you’ll have to book fast for any remaining space on Monday or Thursday this week…

At Leaf Therapeutic Massage, licensed massage therapist Jennifer Wilson is offering 50% off any massage through the month of September, 2011.  (As she’s only open on certain days, that means you’ll need an appointment this Monday or Thursday, so call immediately.)

The regular price at Leaf Therapeutic Massage for a one-hour massage is $60, so the half price massage at $30 is extra-soothing on the bank account.  You don’t need a coupon, just mention that you saw the September 50% off massage deal at ABQ on the Cheap when booking. 

Wilson trained at the Crystal Mountain School of Therapeutic Massage in Albuquerque and the Institute of Psycho-Structural Balance in Los Angeles where she previously worked as a therapist. Her services include Swedish massage, circulatory massage, acupressure, hot stone massage, myofascial release, pregnancy massage, and sensory re-patterning.

I have no idea what sensory re-patterning is, but I’m pretty confident that I need it.

She also performs on-site massages for businesses. I need that too.

Leaf Therapeutic Massage is open on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays, by appointment only – call (505) 850-9910.

The 50% off massage offer is limited to one per customer, until September 30, 2011.

Leaf Therapeutic Massage is located at 920A Cardenas Drive NE,

Ten Thousand Waves Hot Tub & Spa Packages

Comments Off on Ten Thousand Waves Hot Tub & Spa Packages

If you’re planning a trip up to Santa Fe, these specials from Ten Thousand Waves might be tempting. If you’re not planning a trip up to Santa Fe, you might be tempted anyway.

Hot tub packages at the delicious Japanese-style Ten Thousand Waves day spa save dollars and provide a great excuse to head up to the City Different for a pamper-me day trip. 

They also have very pretty names for the packages, which I suppose you would when people are shelling out these sums even at the discounted rates. But I reckon the deals are good value and I always walk (wobble) away from Ten Thousand Waves feeling like overcooked spaghetti.  In other words: very relaxed. And it takes quite a lot to relax Mrs Cheap. Just ask Mr Cheap.

Ten Thousand Waves September and October package:  Nippon Nirvana Package Special for $229, saving up to $59 on the individual treatments. The 3.5 hour package includes a private bath (85-minute or
90-minute premium or super-premium); a 25-minute head and neck treatment; 55-minute organic massage facial, and a 25 minute foot massage.  You need the Ten Thousand Waves coupon to get the discount spa package, and then book in advance for any day through October 31, 2011. Visitors staying at Ten Thousand Waves lodging don’t need to take the coupon.

Other Ten Thousand Waves spa packages are ongoing, with no coupon required. They save up to 21% and include:  

  • Short & Sweet at $125 for two hours of private bath, head and neck treatment, and salt glow
  • The Natural at $219 for three hours of private bath, head and neck treatment. 55-minute massage, and a salt glow
  • Buddha Treat at $229 for three hours of private bath, deluxe herbal wrap, 55-minute massage, and a salt glow
  • Hot & Steamy at $279 for more than three hours of private bath, deluxe herbal wrap, head and neck treatment, and a deep stone massage. Mmm….

Ten Thousand Waves Lodging Deal Get 50% off any private bath if you stay at Ten Thousand Waves, and you get one 50% off hot tubs deal for each night you stay. The offer is good on Sunday to Thursday to October 31, 2011.

Even if you can’t splash out on these treats, regular admission to soak in the hot tubs and enjoy the sun decks, saunas, and lovely views is pretty affordable:

  • $23.45 admission to the mixed or women-only communal hot tubs, stay as long as you like, and they provide a comfy kimono, sandals, and towels, and well-equipped changing rooms with toiletries and lockers.
  • Hot Tub punch card $169 covers you for 10 visits from Monday to Thursday (saving over $65) and you’re welcome to bring a guest – two people can visit at a time using the punch card.
  • The Waribiki Rewards Club card for New Mexico Residents gives you a 20% discount on private baths, massage, and spa treatments on Monday to Thursday. You can’t use the card on the day you receive it, but if you’re at Ten Thousand Waves anyway, you might as well pick one up for future visits. Take your NM ID.
  • Taking the kids? Children 4 feet tall or under soak for half price.

Ten Thousand Waves is located at 3451 Hyde Park Road, Santa Fe. Allow an hour and 15 minutes for the drive north of Albuquerque via 1-25.
