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 $25, you get $50 worth of salon services at Boshella's Salon in Machesney Park.
Proffering a passel of soothing, serenity-suffusing services, Boshella's Salon immerses clients in a stress-free, rejuvenating experience. A one-hour full-body Swedish massage taps away tension using a traditional technique known as effleurage (French for stroking) and percussion movement––providing relief from pain, stress, and prolonged lumbar guitar solos ($60). Alternately, a one-hour full-body deep-tissue massage targets specific muscle trouble zones, applying intense pressure that unties deep knots and releases circulation-blocking lactic acid before shipping it off to a farm in the country ($60).
Clients already boasting blissful backs can opt to turn their curls into canvases under the hands of Boshella's Salon's tonsorial artistes. The strand swamis can cut and style any unruly head nest ($11+ for children 11 and under, $18 for men, $22+ for women) or twist tresses into a towering updo ($35+), and a collagen hair treatment restores give and glisten to dried-out 'dos ($25+). Post-pampering, freshly coiffed or kneaded clients can imbibe compliments from strangers or sprawl face-down on a lounge sofa to inspire jealous whispers from other, less beautiful spines.
