BY: Editors | Jan 27, 2015

Every day, Groupon helps its customers live their best lives. Whether you want to go to a spa for a few hours’ rest and relaxation or head to a salon to tweak your appearance, you can find a local business on Groupon to make that experience happen. Groupon has hundreds of beauty deals, ranging from scientifically advanced med spas with a roster of rejuvenating lasers to no-frills salons with stylists who can fashion makeovers with just a pair of scissors. 

After our customers redeem their Groupons, they vote on the quality of the service. From that data, we compiled a list of their favorite businesses for beauty and wellness deals. Below are their five favorites, ranked by customer satisfaction:

Feet Feel Spa

Recommended by 94% of customers

What our customers say: "Make sure that you tell your therapist if they're not pressing hard enough to increase the pressure. Overall experience well worth the money." – Lynn W. | "Nice massage. Good service." – Anand L. | "Wear loose, comfortable clothing (yoga pants). Don't worry about makeup or doing your hair as it will be messed up when you're done (well worth it!)." – Pam B.

What our editors say: Using ancient Chinese acupressure techniques, the therapists apply gentle pressure to specific areas along the feet with the aim of alleviating tension and restoring balance throughout the body. Their foot massages range from quick 30-minute treatments to 80-minute escapes. Indulge your feet—remember, they're often unacknowledged sources of stress and pain.

What our editors say: Drs. Martin Burger, William Brand, and Jason Brand have years of experience treating patients with LASIK technology, which produces results of 20/20 vision or better. Instead of handing patients off to technicians, the doctors meet them at an initial consultation, monitor them throughout the LASIK process, and handle their post-operative care.
