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 $30, you get $60 worth of salon and spa services at Elements Spa in Okotoks.
Elements Spa pampers its patrons from pate to pedicure, deploying a fleet of beauty experts who can shape and shear tresses, buff and polish nails, and knead weary muscles. The spa's three levels of hairstylists, operating at different price scales, range from licensed master stylists, with the most experienced boasting a minimum of six years of experience and extensive training in styling techniques, colouring, and treating follicular separation anxiety. One of these scissors-wielding maestros can shampoo and style locks (starting at $25), add full colour (starting at $50), or sweep it into an evening look or updo for upcoming galas and fancy workouts (starting at $50).
The spa lavishes attention on other keratin-rich body parts, offering manicures such as the 45-minute signature option, during which a nail expert shapes, pares, buffs, and polishes talons before applying hand cream and administering a massage that leaves arms and handles as tingly as Captain Hook's left hook ($47). The service comes with a complimentary bottle of nail polish, file, and orangewood stick. Elements Spa's registered massage therapists strive to soothe tense muscles with services that include a deep-tissue therapeutic massage ($55 for 30 minutes) or a lighter-touch stress-relief massage ($50 for 30 minutes) geared towards the laudable goal of relaxation.
