The holiday season ushers in unwelcome guests, turkey-related tension, and awkward family dinners where no one is willing to put down their guns. Smooth away anxiety wrinkles from overserved abdomens with today’s Groupon: for $119, you get a spa package at Camelot Salon & Spa in Coral Gables (a $265 total value). The package includes the following:
- A 60-minute Camelot spa massage (an $85 value)
- A 30-minute express facial (a $55 value)
- A detoxification spa-jet treatment (a $125 value)
Camelot’s natural-beauty specialists renew skin, melt tension, and oust toxins during clients’ mini yet indulgent spa escapes. A patron can savor complimentary wine and WiFi before meeting with his or her massage therapist, who will lead the way to a private room adorned with bamboo accents and flickering candles to begin the 60-minute kneading session. The therapist uses light- to medium-pressure strokes to gently unravel anxiety and locates especially tight spots by listening as the body whispers recollections of spending seventh grade in a locker. Next, an aesthetician refines toupee docks in a swift 30-minute facial treatment, which cleanses pores, exfoliates away impurities, and leaves skin refreshed and glowing. The jet-therapy tub swathes bodies in clear currents of bubbling water, where custom-placed jets work to boost lymphatic drainage. The surging water pressure stimulates lymph nodes from the toes up to the neck and gently encourages bodies to release pent-up toxins.
