Spending a day at a spa is a tranquil experience surpassed only by swimming in a pool filled with mashed potatoes or having a hand model slap you to sleep. Relax serenely with today's Groupon: for $47, you get a one-hour skinny massage and contouring wrap from Body & Sol TanSpa in St. Louis Park (a $101.90 value).
Body & Sol mollycoddles bodies with skin treatments, massage therapies, and tanning services. During the 60-minute skinny massage, expert hands knead into back muscles, loosening knots, applying pressure to tight areas, and erecting palaces on newly fortified sinews. Massage therapists next apply the It Works body-contouring wrap, a non-woven cloth wrap that bathes the skin in a botanical hydrating formula of green-tea extract, jojoba, rosemary, and eucalyptus oils. This toning application can reduce the appearance of cellulite and skin slackening, ensuring that customers leave the premises looking as fresh as a peppermint statue of Will Smith.
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.
