Without spas, terry-cloth bathrobes would have to make ends meet by taking part-time jobs as car-wash rags and Muppets. Help keep bathwear gainfully employed with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $99 for three body-contouring sessions (a $435 value)
- $139 for three body-contouring sessions and a 60-minute Ultimate Martini massage (a $520 total value)
Body-contouring treatments (a $145 value each) use microfiber pads to carry microcurrents directly to muscles in the core, buttocks, or lower thighs, causing them to contract in a way that mimics vigorous exercise. The muscles will not get overstressed, as with exercise, nor does the treatment leave muscles sore. Each 30-minute session can improve circulation, metabolism, and physical stamina, helping to spur inch loss on the waistline. For best results, the Acqui Spa staff recommends clients start with five treatments over a period of two weeks, paired with proper diet and exercise.
The 60-minute Ultimate Martini massage (an $80 value) begins with Swedish-style relaxation kneads to spur blood circulation. Then, the massage therapist delves deeper into muscle knots using a customized combination of acupressure, deep-tissue, and trigger-point techniques. Warm, natural oils and a concluding hot-towel treatment help relieve deep-seated stress throughout the body.
Acqui Spa’s cocktail- and travel-themed services channel the luxury of a tropical vacation inside vibrantly colored treatment rooms. Facials and body wraps cull smells and flavors from classic cocktails; in the ultimate mai tai body wrap, for instance, infusions of coconut lend serums an exotic aroma, and tangy lemongrass mimics the refreshment of a first sip. Vacation-themed services jet the senses away on distant retreats with far-flung ingredients such as Pacific salts, Polynesian florals, and seaweed harvested by trilingual octopi. The highly trained staff regularly looks to Europe for cutting-edge beauty treatments, such as injections of stem cells—harvested from French cows in a cruelty-free process—designed to smooth and firm skin.
The private, tropical-themed treatment rooms treat the eyes to crisp citrus hues or cool ocean blues. In the waiting room, chaises made of minimalist white leather offset the boldness of walls’ lime-green hue and the busyness of their packed poster-modeling schedule.
