Today's Groupon is perfect for people who love a good massage but hate how, unlike pie, they can't take any of it home with them. For $39, you get a one-hour therapeutic massage (a $70 value) plus one Warm Hugs corn pillow ($8) at Keep in Touch Massage. This Groupon can only be used at Keep In Touch's Uptown location, which employs a staff of 18 professionally trained massage therapists and operates seven massage rooms, making it a perfect rest stop for frazzled holiday shoppers and neighborhood girls weary from years of fending off Billy Joel.Follow @Groupon_Says on Twitter.
One of yoga's best qualities is its ability to give inner peace to the practitioner, who in turn is better prepared to connect with others and build community. At Platinum Yoga, this quality spills out of classes and into the post-class period as practitioners gather to share tea, coffee, and conversation about whether or not Downward is a good name for a dog. This sense of community isn't limited to yoga students, either—those who partake in fitness classes such as Zumba, Cardio Pump, and Nordic Walking also build camaraderie during and after high-intensity sessions.
Gordon Franks and Pat Worley are more than black belts. They’re ninth-degree black belts who share their chosen martial art with youngsters and adults alike through USA Karate, the school they cofounded. The school - which opened in 1973 and has been operating for more than 40 years - was featured on the local CBS station and teaches self-defense techniques that help students graduate to higher-level belts and translate into increased agility, coordination, and self-confidence.
Dr. Cam-Tu Dalluge has been tending to the dental needs of Minnesotans for more than 10 years. These days, Cam-Tu makes up half of Northstar Dental Clinic’s doctoring team alongside Dr. Catalin Constantin. The duo’s extensive services range from basic checkups and deep cleanings to cosmetic treatments and root canals. Their Zoom Teeth Whitening leave smiles at their brightest, while their dental implants replace missing teeth more effectively than borrowing a tooth from beneath your cousin’s pillow. Regardless of the procedure, both doctors follow strict cleanliness guidelines that go above the average dental office, including using only distilled, bottled water.
Dr. Patrick S. Carney, who boasts more than 20 years of skin-care expertise, leads an experienced staff of skinologists into the war for attention-grabbing radiance. Each visit to the pristine, welcoming clinic begins with a thorough assessment of the customer’s skin and complexion, allowing for the proper selection of light, laser, and voodoo-spell therapies to be customized for an effective treatment. A 30-minute IPL photofacial uses intense broad-spectrum pulsed light to treat skin conditions such as sun damage, broken capillaries, paintball indentations, irregular pigmentation, clingy barnacles, fine lines, superglued Halloween masks, and rosacea. By treating the areas of the skin with excess pigmentation, photofacial treatments result in healthy, luminous, younger-looking skin that mesmerizes passersby. For maximum results, IPL photofacial treatments are recommended in a series of three to six treatments. While side effects such as swelling, alteration in pigment, and blisters may occur, Skin Speaks takes all possible safety precautions to prevent them.
Licensed phlebologist Kamran Afzal oversees a trained staff that snoops and snuffs out rogue veins by means of either injection or laser treatment. During a 30-minute cosmetic sclerotherapy session, an ultrasound locates defective ducts and an injection (a maximum of 10cc of medicine) sends them to their doom, closing varicose veins to ease discomfort in the legs. During an EVLT treatment, a high-powered laser heats cursive veins from the inside, smoothing and shrinking them into a mild sans serif font. Both treatments eschew more invasive techniques and send patients home with no downtime. Although this deal is valid for a single session on one leg, a second Groupon may be purchased for an additional treatment on the same or one of the patient's other legs.
