In one of the most miraculous transformations in the natural world, an ugly caterpillar wraps itself in a cocoon and emerges six to eight weeks later as either a beautiful butterfly or a much-uglier caterpillar. Revel in a more predictable and effective beautifying treatment with today's Groupon: for $45, you get any 60-minute massage or body treatment at Back 2 Body in Prairie Village (up to a $90 value).
Back 2 Body plies muscles with soothing massage strokes and beautifies skin with botanical therapies customized for individual needs. Andrea Bartley, resident beautician, calls upon the botanicals of the sea to detoxify skin during the purifying algae body mask (a $90 value), a wrap that pits the body against the slimming powers of vitamins and Fucus algae. Jeni Odell customizes massages to address specific tensions and sore spots with gliding effleurage strokes and, if requested, firm pressure to increase circulation and free muscles from excess toxins ($70). Clients can also opt for invigorating citrus scrubs ($90) or hydrating sugar butter polishes ($90) to soften skin with whipped shea butter, hazelnut oils, and pictures of puppies playing poker.
The beauty experts behind Back2Body turn their clinical and professional training into pampering treatments that revitalize bodies inside and out. Owner Andrea Bartley draws on a nursing background and eight years of experience as she purges pores and removes unwanted fuzz with facials and waxing. She also crafts custom airbrush tans that bless skin with new hues ranging from light bronze glows to deep island bronzes. The studio also offers smooth sculpt treatments, which mitigates problem pudge by stimulating collagen production and removing toxins without invasive methods such as surgery, injections, or oddly in-depth questionnaires.
