Like gasoline, feet must be carefully treated and refined before they can be used to propel automobiles. Amplify your octane with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a deluxe spa manicure and pedicure at Aabsolute Massage & Skin Care in Longwood (a $70 value).
The expert groomers at Aabsolute infuse a standard nail painting with luxurious spa services for treatments that pamper as well as primp. A 45-minute deluxe spa manicure commences with the trimming and moisturizing of nail beds, finished off with a miniature pillow placed on each finger. Dry skin suffers seasoned defeat during a sugar or salt scrub before a hand mask and paraffin-wax dip soften palms. As a massage eases stress, angst over memories of awkward thumbs-ups vanishes. In a rainbow of sunny colors, OPI and essie nail-polish shades brighten fingertips, or clients can opt for a buffing treatment for a more natural style.
During the one-hour deluxe spa pedicure, clients recline in a cushy leather chair as their feet bask in a warm, aromatic soak. Rough heels mellow and fussy arches unwind during a rejuvenating foot scrub and massage. Once trimmed and buffed, toe talons enjoy a slick of bright nail polish, allowing guests to confidently don sandals or attend hobbit block parties with no inhibitions.
Aabsolute Massage & Skin Care
Before opening Aabsolute Massage & Skin Care, Christine Finan worked for two decades as a nurse in the U.K. It was during that time that she began incorporating bodywork into her patients’ therapy regimens and saw the positive effects it had on their mental and physical well-being.
Today at her studio, she and her team use techniques such as Swedish and deep-tissue massage, as well as aromatherapy and reflexology, to promote good health and make clients feel about as stressed as a guy in a stock relaxation photo with his feet up on his desk. The team also pampers pores with a full menu of facial treatments and body wraps and nurtures natural nails with spa mani-pedis.
