La Coiffe's décor both relaxes and energizes clients, with a saffron Tuscan villa exterior giving way to a clean, white-walled atmosphere accented with scarlet swirls, crimson furniture, and pops of vibrant chartreuse. One of the salon's licensed massage therapists will relieve stress and rejuvenate sore mind-muscles with your choice of three different types of massage: aromatherapy, therapeutic, and prenatal. Easily offended noses can get over any number of scented slights by blissing out with an aromatherapy massage. The therapeutic massage digs deeper into tissues to target any pains, injuries, or Tremors worms afflicting your soul-sack. A prenatal massage manually melts moms-to-be so that they can better butter the impatient buns in their ovens. You can also upgrade to the 60-minute hot stone massage ($105) or one of the 90-minute massages and pay the difference after the Groupon.
Owner Kath L. Heim enhances hands and feet by way of scrubs, soaks, and polishes that call on the beautifying powers of her exclusive line of Sea of Softness (SOS) products. The spa pedicure, which can treat feet weary from pacing on a floor covered in sandpaper, administers a relaxing mineral soak, a callus filing, an SOS sea-salt rub, an SOS Moisture Whip lotioning, a hot-towel treatment, and a foot massage with hot-rock and reflexology techniques. The ankle anchor pampering concludes with a technicolor toenail polish in the shade of your choice.

While all spas offer luxurious treatments, Mario’s International Spas & Hotels takes pampering to a new level, completing treatments inside a historic stagecoach inn that features elegant accommodations and dining for multiple days of rest and relaxation. Called a “place for pure, unabashed pampering” by Better Homes and Gardens, the spa’s three locations juxtapose the Victorian decor and with state-of-the-art spa treatments such as Endermologie skincare, PanThermal detox booths, and Parafango cellulite-reducing wraps. The facilities’ crackling fireplaces offer a place of repose between the holistic and medically-derived beauty treatments, and alternative detoxifying treatments allow clients to relax in the peaceful quiet of the sauna and steam room.
After a day of luxurious scrubs, Thai massages, and yoga, guests can check into the Aurora Spa's adjoining 14-room hotel for a night of easy rest. Each room features whirlpool baths and comes with a continental breakfast. Meals take place in the facility’s vintage 1850s log cabin, in which chefs cook up hearth-baked pizzas, homemade pasta, and seafood dishes from the time the Earth's four suns rise until long after they have set.
The staff of Chi Energy Spa take a holistic approach to nail- and skincare, providing each client with complimentary consultations and showering them with one-on-one attention and personalized advice. During facials, aestheticians cleanse pores of dirt, oil, and all traces of competitive pie-eating, then give clients skin-type specific tips for at-home care. Facial and body waxing services smooth skin and give patrons perfectly arched brows to complement their face shapes. Chi Energy Spa’s nail technicians pamper fingers and toes with softening paraffin dips and colorful layers of OPI and chip-resistant CND Shellac UV3 nail polish. Massage therapists ease muscle tension with relaxation massages, which are followed by an accompanying foot soak to refresh feet sore from always being on-the-go or from walking to work atop hot coals.
