A day at the spa grants sweet respite from a fast-paced world of errands, deadlines, and books on tape read by auctioneers. Savor serenity without speediness, thanks to today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a spa package at Cristo Bello Spa Salon and Gifts in North Huntingdon (up to a $202 total value). The spa package includes:
- Swedish massage (up to a $65 value)
- Signature facial (up to a $65 value)
- Basic manicure (up to a $17 value)
- Classic pedicure (up to a $40 value)

The experienced and certified staff at Cristo Bello deftly tends to peevish backs and brightens visages with massage and facial treatments. New guests can tour the spa’s sophisticated layout, pausing to examine glossy wood fireplaces entirely free from bubbling cauldrons, before obtaining a free consultation. A 60-minute Swedish massage pits nimble hands against irksome knots, incorporating long, pressured strokes to smooth away muscular tenderness. During the signature facial, staffers wield Dr. Alkaitis organic skincare products concocted from edible ingredients, eschewing chemicals so that countenances can steep in nutrient-rich masks. Finally, technicians treat hands to a paraffin treatment that exfoliates and moisturizes skin surfaces before sending them into a hydrating paraffin bath, finishing off the pampering with essential mani-pedi care.
Cristo Bello Spa Salon and Gifts
Top-shelf products by Aveda, Kevin Murphy, and Baco line the shelves at Cristo Bello Spa Salon and Gifts, where beauty experts cosset their clients with an array of services. Experienced hairstylists spin around cushy black styling chairs in the salon, ribboning hair with full-foil highlights and freeing men, women, and children from pesky split-ends and lengths that present choking threats. They dole out helpings of the Brazilian-blowout treatment to transform frizzy strands into smooth and shiny locks, or put a hint of bounce into stick-straight strands with spiral texturizing. Nail technicians work close by, shaping and polishing nails and enveloping skin with hot stones.
Guests can escape the chatter and noisy blow dryers by retreating to the spa for a massage or facial. Licensed massage therapists push stress aside with Swedish, deep-tissue, and shiatsu massages, while clients sip on herbal tea or wine. Meanwhile, aestheticians call upon Aveda and Dr. Alkatis Organic Skin Care products to cleanse and clarify skin. They use the soy-based Nufree system to remove hair from the face and body without the irritation or bee trail of traditional waxes, and create a natural-looking tan in minutes with Norvel organic spray-tanning solutions.
