The therapists at Body Kneads Therapeutic Massage draw on five different modalities as they soothe tension and ease injuries. While traditional Swedish massage unravels tension with gliding kneads, deep-tissue massage targets specific regions of pain. Hot-stone therapy employs warm, smooth stones?and sometimes cold stones?to loosen knots and release endorphins. Sports massage helps active muscles prepare for and unwind from exertion. In addition to nurturing pinched shoulders back to health, rotator-cuff therapy makes it possible for clients to move arms more easily without injury.
Tantastic's owners, Mark and Christina Awbrey, provide their clients with a few ways to maintain sun-kissed skin. Four levels of tanning bed imbue skin with color?the level 1 lightly darkens skin in 15 minutes, whereas the level 3 bed ups the sun dosage and delivers darker tans in 12 minutes. Each bed includes a high-pressure facial lamp so that heads and torsos don't appear mismatched, like the discount bin at the mannequin store. For those who'd like to stay out of the fake sun, Tantastic also offers spray tanning.
Armed with current techniques for properly maintaining noggin lawns, Regis Salon’s network of stores keeps clients’ hair in order as dictated by the latest trends. Within this caravan of hair bazaars, customers’ wild manes are tamed by skillful stylists. Use your Groupon toward a shampoo, cut, and blow-dry ($29–$38) and lean back and dream of break-dancing Stay Puft Marshmallow Men as a stylist carefully cleanses hair with shampoo and conditioner and then clips it into stylish head-hedges that beautifully complement scalp-garden pathways. Afterward, the hair that’s left behind will receive a loving blow-dry for a style that gleams and glitters like a ruby-encrusted bowling ball. During the treatment, stylists offer helpful tips and tricks to help clients care for hair at home. If a shampoo and cut isn't your cup of sports drink, put your Groupon toward the cost of another service, such as hair coloring ($55–$70), highlights ($75–$90), or a perm ($55–$70). Prices vary by location.
The licensed massage therapists at Refresh and Restore have worked their therapeutic magic on triathletes and Olympians, but their primary focus is on everyday people suffering from chronic tension. Knotted muscles slacken under flowing Swedish strokes and indulgent add-ons such as hot stones and essential oils. Guests can also solicit a massage therapist for a specialty couples massage, ideal for married couples on an anniversary or superheroes and villains seeking to let bygones by bygones.
Banana Beach Tan wants to darken the world?by making it shine with the brilliance of a beautiful bronze glow. The tanning center helps clients acquire natural-looking tans gradually through the use of beds or in an instant through the use of advanced spray-tan technology. During UV-tanning sessions, clients relax in beds by Matrix or Alpha. Inside the Mystic tanning or Versa Pro booth, patented jets evenly coat the skin with a solution designed to leave a natural-looking glow. And from within the comforts of the Pure Collagen booth, red light therapy restores cellular activity and skin elasticity.
