Talented sculptors can make a man out of marble, a swan out of ice, and a functioning defibrillator out of cotton candy. Turn your body into a finely chiseled work of art with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get a spa package for five different treatments (up to a $412 value) at the Body Lounge Spa in Sherman Oaks.
The professionals at Body Lounge Spa tailor each of their luxuriant package's quintet of treatments to the client's individual needs while striving to deliver immediate, visible results. The spa manicure ($34) treats haggard hands to a sea-salt scrub and massage and a 20-minute foot massage with sea-salt scrub ($40) similarly prettifies pinky toes. Next, shed your torso's stunt padding with a body wrap ($149) that swaddles figures in a cocoon of Argentinean multi-enzyme fat-burning gel and microscopic massaging fingers. The full beautifying transformation continues later with a 30-minute neck-and-shoulder massage ($40) with accompanying scalp massage and earlobe taffy pull. A professional teeth whitening ($149) turns tooth lamps on and pulls back stained curtains of wine, tobacco, and three-month-old plum pie.
To refrain from sensory overload, only one service can be used per visit but each service can be upgraded for an additional cost. The spa manicure can be upgraded for the spa pedicure for $15 and for $39, the body wrap can be switched to the Hypoxi european fat-loss system. The 30-minute massage can be swapped out for the full-body massage, which includes a thorough dekinking and unknotting of the muscles.

Body Lounge Spa
The staff at Body Lounge Spa cossets skin during rejuvenating facials and body wraps, and redefines nails while patrons recline in cushioned red pedicure thrones. Guests can sip a glass of wine at the beverage bar as they take in the earth-toned décor grounded in deep chocolate and caramel tones. Massage therapists then invite patrons to rooms illuminated with candles, where treatments such as the energizing Thai massage combat stress and render muscles loose enough to bound up an escalator that's going down.
