The practitioner instructors at WellSpring School of Allied Health enlighten beginners and professionals alike through continuing-education courses in massage therapy, fitness, health, and wellness. Practicing massage therapists can bolster existing expertise with the hot-stone massage course ($272), while certified personal trainers can work toward new certifications during courses such as Certified Pediatric Massage Therapist ($450). Master the fundamentals of muscle mesmerizing during one of six Massage for Everyone programs, or hone CPR and first-aid ($136) skills to better handle catastrophic games of Candyland.
Licensed massage therapists render a panoply of massage modalities geared toward fulfilling their professional mission of vanquishing pain. The team observes that pain encroaches into bodies from many sources, such as stress from work, overexertion from playing sports, or stiffness from traveling cross-country in an overhead bin. To combat these many causes and iterations of pain, each massage therapist culls their experiences to choreograph their own interpretations of massage modalities, each tailored specifically to fit the needs of the client.
Naturally smooth and always perfectly tan, the sun has stolen every boyfriend and girlfriend humanity has ever had. Today's Groupon lets you finally one-up that obnoxious flaming orb: for $25, you get $60 worth of waxing and custom spray tanning at Zen Spa in Prairie Village. This Groupon can be split between two visits, keeping you hair free or brazenly burnished for twice the time.
Zen Spa offers an acclaimed range of waxing services and custom spray-tanning options for its skin-savvy clientele. The all-natural, plant-based French wax is gentler than the buttery kiss of a croissant Casanova as it loosens unwanted hairs from their follicular nests—leaving skin smooth and with minimal irritation. Customers looking for facescaping can combine a lip wax ($12) and a chin wax ($12); limb smoothing costs $30 for a half arm and $45 for a half leg.
Spray bronzers, meanwhile, produce a lustrous, fresh-off-the-beach glow without exposing your skin to beach bullies or the powerful rays of our binary suns. Zen uses Norvell's Amber Sun, which helps cover freckles and blemishes instead of cause them, a major plus over burn-based tanning methods. Each spray tan is airbrushed gently onto the body in 15 to 20 minutes and lasts for five to 10 days, plenty of time to star in a sword-and-sandals epic or make a high-school ex's wife look like Gollum at the reunion. For combating the evil wrinkle rays of the sun while still looking stunning in a bathing suit, you can combine a bikini wax ($25) with a tanning session ($30 for a single session, $25 for two or more).
A visit to Zen Spa's warmly lit, color-saturated confines refurbishes the mind as much as the body, so that you leave feeling as sleek, bronzed, and serene as a statue of a greased dolphin meditating under a bodhi tree. Call ahead to schedule your appointment.
