The owner of Bella Capelli Salone & Day Spa, Karla, has been a stylist since the mid-1980s. Every day she strives to surround her clients with a warm, welcoming environment. She has some help, of course, starting with the salon itself. Housed in a restored home, the space charms with dark, rustic wooden floors and vintage-inspired furniture. Prior to spa treatments such as full-body massages or deep-cleansing facials, guests can soak in the studio’s claw-foot tub inside a softly lit room for utmost relaxation. From there, they can head to one of the home's private spa areas, or perhaps make their way to the salon for haircuts or color treatments. A nail technician works nearby, performing manicures and pedicures ranging from express treatments to massage-fueled signature escapes.

The key hands behind the Northwest curtain belong to Page Hunt, a licensed massage therapist who's been practicing the fine art of relief for 15 years.

With today's deal, you'll receive an hour-long custom-tailored massage from either Page Hunt or her licensed-massage-therapist associate.

You'll leave the Northwest premises with your muscular fibers singing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching like the lead singer in a Norwegian death-metal barbershop quartet.
