In one of the most miraculous transformations in the natural world, an ugly caterpillar wraps itself in a cocoon and emerges six to eight weeks later as either a beautiful butterfly or a much-uglier caterpillar. Revel in a more predictable and effective treatment with today's Groupon: for $49, you get two infrared jade sauna treatments (a $100 value) at Firm Body Evolution Spa on Wilshire Boulevard.
Firm Body Evolution Spa, an alternative-wellness treatment center with a focus on holistic medicine, employs a panoply of modalities designed to heal, relax, and enhance every body. Detox-dedicated clients can soothe and cleanse themselves with the infrared jade sauna, a hot pocket of health that wields warming sensations in order to mollify scattered minds and heal harried bodies. Clients recline atop cushioned mats studded with smooth jade, relaxing their craniums in cool air while their bodies bathe in shallow-penetrating, infrared light that aims to restore bodily power.
From start to finish, the jade-oriented excursion entails humbling perks that pamper the mind and its outer covering. Sleek, white pods wrap around guests as they break into their calorie-banishing sweat, purging pores of bad vibes and melting stress out of tense muscles. To further the relaxing sensations, light aromas permeate the air amid serene lighting that, when stared at, vaguely resemble the sun's son, Thomas Edison.
