Early Greek philosophers relied on spas to rid themselves of worldly troubles, ensuring clearer thinking and the growth of healthy, strokeable beards. Find your own reasons for a spa retreat with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a peppermint manicure and pedicure with hot tea and cookies (a $94 value) at Amadeus Spa & Salon in Pasadena.
Beautifying sojourns at Amadeus Spa & Salon—a San Gabriel Valley Regional Winner in the Los Angeles Times' Readers' Choice 2011—begin with complimentary access to a eucalyptus steam room before downy robes and cushy slippers slip physiques into the uniform of luxury. During a mani-pedi, experienced technicians hover over appendages, carefully trimming nails, shaping cuticles, and pollinating toes. Tension escapes hands and feet during a massage, and rough patches soften with a crisp peppermint foot scrub that exfoliates surfaces and convinces friends that you trampled Candyland. Finally, color splashes over nails to add vibrancy to appendages.
A rest area provides a peaceful sanctum for clients to munch on cookies and sip soothing herbal tea, which relaxes throats stressed from filling in for the town crier. Fully refreshed, customers reclaim their validated vehicles for journeys to places where they can sustain their peaceful moods.
Amadeus Spa's staff and interior has appeared in the film Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde, graced television screens on ABC's Extreme Makeover and Millionaire Matchmaker, and exhibited their handiwork on the Rose Bowl queen and her court of chrysanthemum noblesse for two decades. Readers of the Los Angeles Times even voted the shop the best for facials and skin care in the San Gabriel Valley in 2012 and 2011.
Amadeus's massage therapists and nail technicians take great care and pride in pampering clients in a clean and sanitary environment. Individual autoclave sanitized tools are used in each nail service, and every nail technician is re-trained in-house to ensure quality and updated mastery of the hand jive. Guests receive slippers, robes, and complimentary skin consultations upon request, and may pad down the scented hallways after their treatment to decompress in a eucalyptus steam room.
