The aestheticians at Blu Salon are dedicated to pampering and treating besieged skin in an eclectic and soothing environment, free of elitist attitudes and imported cockatoos. Your appointment will start with a skin consultation to determine which of the six facial formulas best suits your pore preferences. Blu's signature facial service, the Blu Essential Facial ($100), is an hour-long face freshener that includes basic cleansing, balancing, exfoliation, European-style massage, and skin-specific hydration. The 60-minute Anti-Aging Facial ($120) replenishes moisture and hydration lost to years of sunny days and skies with scattered clouds. Well-mannered men with unruly razors can soothe sensitive skin and irritation with the Gentleman's Facial ($90, 45 minutes). The blow-dry ($40+) that follows your countenance cleansing is a full-fledged hair helper that includes a shampoo, salon styling, hand exfoliation, and head-and-neck massage.
Dr. Jodi Kinney and the highly trained staff at Intrinsic Chiropractic Center keep bodies properly aligned with their wide range of corrective services. The path to skeletal wellness starts with a consultation and exam, during which a doctor of chiropractic determines the state of each patient's muscles, joints, and dormant superpowers. A series of spinal scans unveils any kinks that may be in the way of overall well-being through thermographic and electromyographic readings, following up with any necessary x-rays. The massage takes place during a second appointment, after the doctor has had time to review the results of the examination and spinal scan. Armed with the doctor's notes, a talented massage therapist kneads muscles and manipulates joints to relieve tension and pain throughout the body, restoring the mobility needed for underwater slam-dunk competitions. This Groupon also covers the cost of a follow-up appointment to review the results of the exam, should the doctor discover any ailment that could be improved with additional chiropractic care.
The techs at all Victoria's Nails and Spa locations have one thing in common: they pride themselves on running clean shops where clients can come to get their paws pampered.

As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry.

Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week.

The professional massage therapists at Beyond Beautiful Spas tap, stretch, and knead during massages that range from deep-tissue to migraine-relief variations. The staff tailors every massage to each client's needs and skin type, and all sessions include a refreshing hot towel.

Clients can also stop in for a professional makeup application, and 20% of these sales is donated to the charitable AIDS Foundation.
