Without spas, terrycloth bathrobes would have to make ends meet by taking part-time jobs as car-wash rags and Muppets. Help keep bathwear gainfully employed with today’s Groupon: for $69, you get a spa package at Body & Sol in St. Louis Park (a $139 total value). The spa package includes:
- A 60-minute deep-tissue massage (a $70 value).
- A scalp and facial acupressure massage (a $20 value).
- A cooling eye treatment (a $20 value).
- A peppermint foot scrub (a $20 value).<p>
The beauty-bolsterers at Body & Sol mend exteriors with lavish spa treatments that improve both appearances and moods. The 75-minute rejuvenating spa package first indulges muscles with a full-body deep-tissue massage that uses firm-pressured strokes across the whole body. During the 60-minute session, a trained therapist homes in on specific pained areas with rolling-pin fingertips and uses custom massage modalities for each client. The tranquility maestro then moves the soothing strokes upward, melting away stress on the face and scalp with acupressure and using a natural facial cream to coax visages into releasing the tense expressions they developed while starring in film adaptations of Edvard Munch’s The Scream.
Body & Sol’s techs also tend to the face with a cooling eye treatment that sheathes lids in a calming gel before crowning them with herbal eye pads. Each vision pod is packed with a blend of chamomile and lavender intended to ward off eye puffiness. A peppermint foot scrub treats toes with peppermint-oil-infused granules that slough away dead skin cells and imbue them with a cooling sensation that surrounds the feet the way a SWAT team surrounds a retirement cake.
Body & Sol Tan Spa
Body & Sol Tan Spa wields the power of indoor sunshine with three types of UV tanning apparatuses. The standup Sundome booths and Ovation beds with UVB-free facial tanners bronze skin for a fresh-off-the-beach appearance, minus the messy sand and arm-floatie tan lines. Alternatively, the salon's airbrush technicians emulate the sun's skin-darkening effects with UV-free spray tans that can create a weeklong bronze in mere seconds with a tinted mélange of ginseng, rosemary, and aloe vera. Aside from tanning services, the staff facilitates head-to-toe relaxation with therapeutic massages, full-body scrubs, deep-tissue, myofascial release, and sports massages.
