After a long day of besieging steppe settlements, the Mongol hordes liked to kick back with a vigorous massage, a copy of the Daily Khan, and a nice warm glass of fermented yak's milk. Conquer your own serenity with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get either a one-hour swedish massage or one-hour Algo seaweed-mask facial at Beauty and Youth Spa on West 8th Street (a $70 value each).
Beauty and Youth Spa's team of seasoned technicians and aestheticians soothe body and skin with an array of authentic European spa treatments. During the one-hour swedish massage, meticulous therapists will painstakingly rub muscles in the direction of blood flow, promoting circulation and creating a whirlpool for fun-loving red cells. By introducing blood to neglected muscles and joints, therapists forge a stress-eliminating bond and a feeling of full body relaxation.
The Algo seaweed-mask facial, also one hour, mimics massages in its tension-relieving tendencies. The treatment's soothing thermo-cooling mask works to decongest sensitive, rosacea-prone, and acne-inclined skin, restoring a façade as youthful and healthy as a bench-pressing lollipop.
Spa Jolie throws open its doors seven days a week to administer laser treatments and style and coif both men and women with traditional salon services. Laser wielders contour figures with FDA-approved Zerona treatments, chiseling physiques so they are able to blend in at Greek-sculpture museums. The laser facial targets premature signs of aging on sun-damaged visages, and waxing, massage, and haircuts give aesthetics upgrades.
