Like the best pie dough, your body needs to be moisturized, kneaded, and smoothed before it's ready to be filled with apples and flung against a loved one. Get a delicious, crumb-free exterior with today's Groupon: for $65, you get a microbuff body polish and a mini facial at Avi Day Spa in Great Falls, Virginia (a $130 value).
Avi Day Spa's staff nourishes faces and bodies through a fusion of invigorating botanicals and the ancient technique of Ayurveda, a millennia-old Indian healing practice. The 45-minute microbuff body polish takes a three-prong approach to skin radiance by ousting expired cells, infusing new skin with moisture, and threatening to pull over to the side of the road unless cells renew immediately. Specialized ingredients softly scrub away surface impurities before therapists swathe bodies in an aromatic lavender-calendula lotion to leave statures polished and silken.
Onlooking faces get their own dose of doting with a mini facial. A quick cleansing, exfoliation, and hydration of sensitive visage vellum leave faces just as lustrous as newly burnished bodies. Brightly colored treatment rooms allow patrons to bask in the spa's festive atmosphere or let toucans perch on their shoulders unnoticed. Clients should call ahead for appointments.
Avi Day Spa
At Avi Day Spa, fitness experts, facialists, and massage therapists join forces to soothe clients with treatments based on Ayurveda––an ancient healing science that aims to bring body, mind, and spirit back into balance. Fifteen different styles of massage, including shiatsu, ashiatsu, and Swedish, help alleviate aches and clear mental fog. Body treatments can include hydrating essential-oil wraps or scrubs made from 40% honey, which helps make the body more receptive to topical oils and herbs and irresistible to cartoon bears. After rejuvenating facials or microdermabrasion, aestheticians also impart long-lasting allure with permanent-makeup services or grace limbs with continual smoothness courtesy of laser hair removal, waxing, or electrolysis.
