Primrose Body & Boutique provides clients with a wide array of aesthetic services performed by experienced, licensed practitioners. Like police sketch artists and moustache photographers, Primrose brings an intimate understanding of the face to its work, offering eight different flavors of facial among its many other cosmetic treatments. The glycolic facial uses glycolic acid as an exfoliating agent, helping all skin types repel signs of aging, defeat fine lines, and slay uneven skin tone. Guests can further furbish their cranial shrinkwrap with a chin or lip wax ($10 and $12, respectively), a brow shaping ($20), or a full facial wax ($45, excluding brows), among other areas. Threading is available at the same price as waxing for customers who feel queasy at the sight of candle blood.
It’s rare to find a single treatment that works to address anything from headaches to weight loss, but the acupuncturists have been using their methods to do so for more than 5,000 years.

In the past, clients have used these therapies to find relief from many kinds of pain, debilitating addictions, fatigue, and gastrointestinal problems, including those caused by the uncontrollable impulse to eat still-life paintings of fruit.
Pain relief. Boosted brain function. A strengthened nervous system. Restored natural movement. A simple spinal adjustment can produce a wealth of body-bettering effects, and Doctor of Chiropractic Alireza Hirsa at Chirowithin Reach brings this relief to his patients. Dr. Hirsa’s techniques don’t start and end with adjustments, though—he also provides trigger-point therapy and cold-laser therapy after feeding a popsicle to his office’s laser device. Doctor of Chiropractic Alpana Gowda works at Dr. Hirsa’s side, though her specialty is in physical medicine, rehabilitation, and pain medicine. In fact, Dr. Gowda is so well versed and well respected in her field that she co-penned The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Pain Relief, a self-help manual released in 2010.
Owned by a trained and licensed aesthetician, Kayaa Spa doles out skincare for the entire body, treating problems ranging from aging skin to sun damage to acne-prone spots. The enzyme facial gives stuck-up pores their comeuppance, masking mugs in 50 minutes of exfoliating bliss. A papaya enzyme treatment breaks down outer layers of skin, removing dead cells from its surface. Deep cleansing then purges comedones, or blackheads, from pores that have been hoarding excess oils and Hummel figurines. The gentle nature of the papaya extracts combined with the intense exfoliation makes this facial ideal for sensitive, congested, dull, and easily offended skin. Groupon users are also invited to take advantage of a 15% discount on a series of six skin services.
