Body wraps were invented by the Egyptians, who somehow knew mankind would one day need mummies to play the saxophone solos in Halloween party songs. Do the mash with today's Groupon to Aqua Desert Spa & Wellness (up to a $150 value). Choose between the following options:
- For $60, you get a pumpkin-spice body wrap (a $150 value).
- For $25, you get a detoxifying footbath (a $50 value).
Aqua Desert's staff of health-conscious therapists perform skin- and body-boosting services in private treatment rooms that emanate soothing soundscapes. During the one-hour pumpkin-spice body wrap, a specialist gently swabs edifices with a scrub made of flavors normally reserved for tongues. An anticellulite cream then tightens skin and smoothes fine lines and wrinkles so that clients can plausibly claim a student discount when bribing maitre d's for tables.
Clients can also spend 30 minutes soaking their feet in an aqua bath infused with saline solution to coax out toxins and soften skin. A magnetic device called an array dips its toes in the water to send negative ions into the epidermis. Like a chakra chart devised on a Lite-Brite, the bath water changes colors to symbolize the areas of the body that are detoxifying.
Aqua Desert Spa & Wellness
One step across the threshold of Aqua Desert Spa & Wellness yields a sense of tranquility. Music, aroma, and color therapy simulate the senses as health-conscious professionals perform natural therapies to balance the body. The center specializes in colonics, which flush out compacted material from the intestinal tract to improve digestion and decrease the presence of harmful bacteria or putrefied wads of gum. Colon hydrotherapist Roenee McLin works alongside a homeopath, massage therapist, and weight-loss coach who perform services that include microdermabrasion, infrared weight-loss treatments, pumpkin-spice body wraps, and massages.
