A trip to the spa provides a quiet escape from the city's honking horns and crowded sidewalks full of foul-mouthed pigeons. Relax in a tranquil space with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of spa services at Cocoon Urban Day Spa.
The founder of this day spa and yoga studio hybrid, Sarah Redmond, helms a staff of licensed aestheticians, massage therapists, and yoga instructors who help enhance mind and body health. Defuzz upper lips ($15) or shape and polish claws through manicures ($15+) and pedicures (20+) that garnered the attention of Vogue magazine. Airbrush tanning instills a natural-looking glow on the face ($10), upper body ($30), or full body ($48) without the dangers inherent in hugging the sun. Facials ($25+) and massage services ($100+) are also available for weary bodies and worn out countenances.
Inside the elegant urban spa, warm lighting spills from rounded lampshades that hover gently over pulled back curtains and tan walls. Plush leather pedicure thrones rest atop dark hardwood floors and soak up the warm sunlight shining in from the wall of windows against which they recline. Though not included with this Groupon, the spa's spacious yoga studio hosts organic tones and cozy mats on which dogs face downward and people pretend to be trees.
Cocoon Urban Day Spa
Cocoon Urban Day Spa's personally tailored services help clients shut out the stressors of everyday life, as well as refresh appearances. During the signature facial, for instance, clients relax on a plush treatment table while aestheticians apply a customized mask, plump up their skin with oxygen, and then knead knots out of their backs, necks, and shoulders. The decadent facial also includes a calming Shirobhyanga head treatment, which fights insomnia better than lavender-scented PJs.
For those who do need to get back to the real world as soon as possible, Cocoon offers services such as 15-minute Brazilian waxes, 30-minute dermaplaning treatments, and mani-pedis performed simultaneously by two technicians. This particular treatment was featured in Vogue.
The spa's doctor-partners perform more intensive treatments, too, including Botox injections and teeth whitening.
