Like Hawaii, relaxation can be a challenging state to reach. Ensnare elusive serenity with today’s Groupon from Essenza Salon and Medi Spa in Sparks. Choose between the following options:
- For $80, you get a 90-minute Swedish massage, tropical scrub, and citrus foot treatment from Dina Richter (a $160 value).
- For $40, you get a manicure and pedicure from Catherine Brown (an $80 value).
Essenza's licensed massage therapists and aestheticians master a spread of techniques to knead weary, overworked muscles into states of doughy relaxedness and scour skin to sparkling cleanliness. Stress flees from Dina's relentless hands during a 90-minute Swedish massage as smooth, circular strokes loosen taught tendons and create a back softer than a baby bunny wearing a cashmere sweater. Decontaminate dermises with the equatorial aromas of the tropical scrub for the back and arms. The citrus foot treatment rounds out the session by softening soles with tangy sweetness more comfortable than wearing socks sewn out of orange peels.
Fingers and palms recover from life’s hard knocks during the manicure, starting with a full-mitt soak in aromatherapy crystals before a thorough skin and cuticle grooming. Metacarpal ministrations continue with a massage, as Catherine finishes the treatment with a keratin polish that leaves nails sparkling like a glass of champagne wearing a suit of armor. The pedicure erases calluses, smoothes rough-edged toes, massages away tension, and clears up traffic jams across the bridge of the foot.
Essenza Salon and Medi Spa
At Essenza Salon and Medi Spa, Darcy DellaVella arms herself with products by Dermalogica and Image in order to aid clients in their never-ending fight against stress, aging, and environmental toxins. The spa comprises 3,300 square feet, providing ample space for staff to perform nail treatments, haircuts, and waxing treatments without disturbing clients relaxing under the soothing ministrations of hot-stone massage or those napping on the lobby couch. Beyond enlivening complexions with permanent makeup, the team also offers resurfacing treatments such as microdermabrasion to help stimulate new-cell production and reduce the appearance of scars and enlarged pores, and those looking to fill in fine lines and wrinkles can inquire about injections of Botox, administered by a nurse injection specialist.
