Without spas, terrycloth bathrobes would have to make ends meet by taking part-time jobs as car-wash rags and Muppets. Help keep bathwear gainfully employed with today’s Groupon: for $69, you get a spa package at Body & Sol in St. Louis Park (a $139 value). The spa package includes:
- 60-minute deep-tissue massage (a $70 value)
- Scalp and facial acupressure massage (a $20 value)
- Cooling eye treatment (a $20 value)
- Peppermint foot scrub (a $20 value)<p>
The beauty bolsterers at Body & Sol mend exteriors with lavish spa treatments that treat tired skin and muscles with rejuvenating care. The 75-minute rejuvenating spa package first indulges muscles with a full-body deep-tissue massage that utilizes firm-pressured strokes across the whole body. During the 60-minute session, a trained therapist hones in on underlying knots and specific pained areas with trained rolling-pin fingertips and uses custom massage modalities for each client. The tranquility maestro then moves the soothing strokes upward, melting away stress on the face and scalp with acupressure while a natural facial crème coaxes visages to release tense expressions locked in mimics of Edvard Munch’s The Scream.
In additional to mollifying hardworking heads, Body & Sol’s techs tend to the face with a cooling eye treatment that sheathes lids in a calming gel before crowning them with herbal eye pads. Each vision pod packs in a blend of chamomile and lavender intended to ward off eye puffiness. A peppermint foot scrub concludes the body-revitalizing experience by tending to toes with peppermint-oil-infused granules that slough away dead skin cells and imbue a cooling sensation that wraps around the feet until each toe lets out a refreshing sigh.
Body & Sol Tan Spa
Body & Sol Tan Spa wields the power of indoor sunshine with three types of UV tanning apparatuses. The standup Sundome booths and Ovation beds with UVB-free facial tanners bronze skin for a fresh-off-the-beach appearance, minus the messy sand and arm-floatie tan lines. Alternatively, the salon's airbrush technicians emulate the sun's skin-darkening effects with UV-free spray tans that can create a weeklong bronze in mere seconds with a tinted mélange of ginseng, rosemary, and aloe vera. Aside from tanning services, the staff facilitates head-to-toe relaxation with therapeutic massages, full-body scrubs, deep-tissue, myofascial release, and sports massages.
