Bodies are important to keep in balance, like checkbooks, diets, or a teeter-totter at the edge of the Grand Canyon. Seek holistic beauty with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a cosmetic acupuncture facial at Mera Natural Hair & Body in Lincoln Park (a $125 value).
Founded by sisters Meredith and Sara Jackson, Mera Natural Hair & Body combines beauty treatments with a holistic vision of health and wellness to both prettify bodies and keep them in balance. The 60-minute cosmetic acupuncture facial works to reduce the signs of aging naturally, with a licensed acupuncturist stimulating targeted points on the surface of the skin with very thin, disposable needles and dramatic readings of sewing manuals. The treatment can help increase circulation, boost collagen production to fill in fine lines, and firm and tighten skin. Professional pamperers will also spread high-quality organic creams and serums over complexions to brighten and balance skin texture and covertly paint on invisible-ink cheek portraits of Millard Fillmore.
Mera Natural Hair & Body
Founded by the Jackson sisters—Meredith, a cosmetologist, and Sara, an acupuncturist—Mera Natural Hair & Body was built on the philosophy that beauty and health blossom from the inside. Both Jacksons’ skill sets are showcased inside their earth-toned spa, where crystal chandeliers and potted plants create a luxe backdrop for natural and organic beautification treatments. Media outlets such as Time Out Chicago and Popsugar have praised the spa for its services, which include holistic remedies such as eastern bodywork and cupping as well as cosmetic acupuncture, salon services, and facials that employ ultrasound, microcurrent, and herbal therapy.
