Honey-dew facials moisturize and gently exfoliate the skin, thanks to honey’s alpha-hydroxy acids and humectants. And raw silk comes to play during the garshana massage, an ancient massage technique from India. The massage therapist wears special gloves made of raw silk and other fibers that help boost circulation and oxygen flow. Other services at Beauty Within include slimming body wraps and body sculpting.
The wellness wizards at Soul 2 Sole strive to cleanse the body of toxins with soothing foot detox sessions in an IonCleanse Premier ionic footbath. In each 35-minute appointment, tired tootsies take a break from punting uncooperative boxes of plastic battery packaging by soaking in a soothing saltwater bath alongside a metal array activated by a low-level electric current. The current generates positively and negatively charged ions aimed at drawing out the body's toxins via acupuncture and reflexology portals in the feet. This detoxification process is believed to heighten energy levels, improve flexibility, decrease pain and headaches, and impart the ability to purify water by running fingers through it. Groupon customers also receive 15% off detox tea.
