Todd Beckman founded MassageLuXe with the notion that five-star service should not be limited to pricey hotels. Today, the spa's team of qualified massage therapists and aestheticians continues to realize and build upon Todd's initial aspirations. A spa day at MassageLuXe includes all the perks one might expect from a vacation resort, from facials and massages to full-body waxing and baths in warm, effervescent champagne. The company's services tend to exceed expectations in other ways, too; along with standard massages such as Swedish and deep tissue, therapists are proficient in specialty modalities such as bio-mat, reflexology, and aromatherapy.
Bubblegum pink. Sugary treats. Rhinestones and glitter. Sweet and Sassy’s stylists pamper moppets during shrunken-down spa treatments spun with these elements. As tots lounge on tangerine pillows, kid-calibrated manicures and pedicures bejewel their keratin shields with sparkly nail art and adorn their favorite digits with rings and toe rings. Facials slather visages with gentle, sweet-smelling concoctions, and ear-piercing services add appropriate glint to kids' facial regions so that they can stop lodging beads in their nostrils. For birthday parties, celebrants can arrive in the spa’s pink limousine before strutting down the runway in Sweet and Sassy’s glittery gowns.
A regal entrance reminiscent of a Roman bath welcomes patrons into Gjeto’s Salon and Day Spa, where painted ceilings and arched entryways carry on the lavish theme. The luxury isn’t just in appearances, either. Upon arrival, a friendly consultant greets each guest, handing off a plush robe, slippers, and keys to a private locker for stashing away belongings or a long workday's bad vibes. From there, guests can head into the day spa, where zen-like spa rituals aim to soothe both body and mind. For instance, licensed massage therapists can dispel stress and muscular tension with an aromatherapeutic massage before patrons sink into a cozy pedicure couch for an indulgent foot and nail treatment topped off with vegan polish. While women enjoy Jane Iredale makeup applications, men can head to the gentlemen's oasis for a facial specially tailored to freshly shaven skin. Flanked by vibrant golden walls, the hair salon welcomes both men and women to take a seat at a mahogany station, where they can admire their freshly snipped locks in a small rectangular mirror.
Tres Jolie Salon and Spa’s multitalented crew beautifies bodies with aesthetic treatments that employ an array of natural products and massage treatments to an advanced level of customization. Staffers cleanse and hydrate complexions with natural, paraben-free Guinot products, leaving skin glowing more than a recently promoted lighthouse keeper. Artists then put finishing touches on fresh visages with the all-natural Jane Iredale line of mineral makeup. The massage crew tailors visits to meet the specific needs of the client, enhancing sessions with myofascial release and aromatherapy. Therapists even offer modalities that are specific to different clients, including pre- and postnatal treatments, modified techniques for people with special needs, geriatric massage, and hot-stone therapy for patrons who recently lost a pet rock.
Stylists add creative flair to hair at stations made of rich hardwood and marble. The fun-loving ensemble coordinates party packages that include hors d'oeuvres, drinks, music, and candles, ideal for celebrating a bridal party or preparing for prom.
Once you have your Groupon, you can call to schedule an appointment at Agosta, where a master hair shaman will snip, fade, and charm the most distraught bristles, frizzies, and head-snakes. Your experienced stylist will sense your innermost hair-yearnings, then direct carefully wielded scissors in tune with your thoughts and dreams, letting creativity and practical solutions decorate your scalp for a haircut that revolutionizes the way you look in the mirror—inside and out. Afterward, in the streets, you might find that your magnificent cut busts the binds of its bowler hat and leaps into sunshine, dappling the dark alleyways of careless coiffeurs.
At Guided Hands Massage Therapy, licensed massage therapists customize 30-minute massage sessions to soothe body aches. Mothers-to-be can prepare babies for tickling with the prenatal massage, which helps to soothe weight-bearing joints and inline skates. Clients can relax with the Swedish massage’s gentle, gliding strokes or enjoy injury relief after the therapeutic massage. To personalize sessions, the therapist will migrate kneads toward sore or tense areas, if desired. Visitors can target deep-rooted twinges by sleeping on a backscratcher or upgrading to a deep-tissue massage for an additional $10 (not included with this Groupon).
