The stresses of daily life evaporate swiftly during a visit to a day spa, unlike a visit to a night spa, which is typically marked by numerous owl peckings and endless stare downs with the moon. Seize the day with today's Groupon: for $89, you get a 50-minute signature facial and a 40-minute Shirodhara massage at Casa Blanca Salon & Spa (a $200 value).
The expert aestheticians at Casa Blanca enliven earthly edifices with soothing, globally inspired services. The 50-minute Casa Blanca Signature facial ($125) is a custom pore-purging procedure that addresses the epidermal needs of each client. This mug mender restores lost luster to any skin type, whether skin is dry, sensitive, or oily enough to support backyard slipping 'n' sliding.
Once the face is under careful control, sink into the 40-minute enlightenment-expanding Shirodhara massage ($75), a powerful Ayurvedic healing therapy that dates back centuries. During the treatment, skilled staffers apply a rhythmic stream of warm Indian oil onto the chakra point between the eyebrows and forehead—a point that is said to be the seat of human consciousness and La-Z-Boy recliner of skin-cell lethargy. The massage then moves up to the hair and scalp, where the essential oils evolve into nourishing and conditioning gifts for all follicular friends in need.

Hair Lounge & Spa at Cedros
Electric wall-mounted lights shine against exposed brick walls and marble-topped counters at Hair Lounge & Spa at Cedros. But the atmosphere isn't just pomp for look's sake—it's a reflection of the salon's artistic inspiration. Just past the lounge, where hair-care products and scents by Eufora and Davines are on display, the team of master stylists, coloring specialists, and makeup artists are busy working their magic. Using techniques popular in the US and Europe, they perform custom cuts and conditioning, and add vibrancy with single-process coloring and highlights. The salon also specializes in repairing split ends using the Thermo-Marine Bonding System, which binds broken strands and strengthens them with nutrients and tiny Kevlar jackets. Cutting isn't the studio's only method for removing hair, either: for the rest of the body, low-heat, imported French wax moisturizes and soothes as it constricts on the skin to gently lift unwanted hair during waxing.
Additionally, a variety of spa services are available to customers, including skincare solutions that utilize new technologies and targeted, results-driven treatments.
