PA Mobile Massage's elite team of certified massage therapists mollycoddles tense and tired bodies with two flavors of therapy. During the Swedish massage, muscle menders ease away the stresses of daily routines and nightly crime-fighting with broad, sweeping strokes and kneading that boosts circulation. Meanwhile, the deep-tissue treatment focuses its increased pressure into muscular depths to root out chronic aches and knots. Although not included with this Groupon, PA Mobile Massage also applies chairbound massage at offices, marketing events, trade shows, and international tension conventions.
La Bella Vida's staff soothes beat-up bodies with a smorgasbord of spa services and attentiveness. Tense shoulders and burdened backs can opt for a hot-stone massage, whose warmth sets off a chain reaction of relaxation as it spreads through uptight muscles, unlocking them one by one, like a sunrise washing over a field of light-activated vault doors. During the Brazilian wax, an aesthetician drizzles drops of all-natural honey wax onto bramble-choked nether regions, leaving a swath of bareness just in time for bikini season and high-cut denim shorts season.
Tundella & Co.'s owners, Margarita Gazaryan (Russian-born of Armenian descent) and Gustavo Tundela (from Brazil), seemed destined to end up in the beauty industry. Raised by grandparents who were both hairdressers, Margarita fell in love with the industry early on, whereas Gustavo honed his skills and ability to dry hair by spinning a chair really fast as a fashion model. Today, the duo and team continues to hone avant-garde styling techniques, and Gustavo works as an educator and platform artist for Hotheads Hair Extensions and OLEZ Advanced Organic Keratin. This experience ensures customers can rest easy while getting pampered with a variety of hair services and hair-removal and skin-pampering treatments.
The owners of Spa Bavu take their business' name from a Swahili word meaning "inner strength and power". This idea permeates the atmosphere of their small, private spa, where African décor mingles with internationally inspired treatments. Therapists combat aches with six massage modalities, using the long, gliding strokes of the Swedish technique or the heated basalt rocks that ply muscles during hot-stone massages. To exfoliate skin and melt tension, they perform body treatments— aromatic steam baths, Israeli mineral mud and warm French seaweed wraps, and chocolate-infused scrubs. They also help clients ease off stuck Halloween masks with six facials using lavender and green tea blends and oil-balancing formulas.
Whatever spa treatment you're in the mood for—a facial, a hot-stone massage, a body wrap, a waxing, a mani-pedi—it's advisable to budget an entire afternoon for Balance Spa and Fitness. Since the spa offers complimentary access to its lavish amenities, the extra time can be spent simmering in the jacuzzi, taking a leisurely dip in the pristine indoor lap pool, or working up a sweat in the fitness center. When treatment time arrives, the staff leads its robe-clad clients to one of the four private treatment rooms. The specialists favor advanced Naturopathica products made from age-defying ingredients such as soothing aloe, refreshing lavender, and Helen Mirren's DNA.
Knead Body Boutique's self-explanatory name hints at its endeavors: kneading bodies with the aim to relax clients or alleviate achy areas. The staff's techniques run the gamut from a deep-tissue massage and reflexology to the use of heated stones and cupping. Massages, which can last from 15 to 120 minutes, prep bodies for organic body wraps crafted from a mango passion fruit balm, seaweed, or the cocoon of a giant caterpillar.
