Though pursued throughout history, the Fountain of Youth lost its appeal when explorers who hopped into its waters were immediately kicked out for adult swim. Turn back just enough time with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get a spa day at Karma Salon & Spa in Lake Hiawatha (up to a $314 total value). The spa package includes the following:
- A one-hour organic herbal facial (a $75 value)
- A caviar hair treatment and blowout (up to a $150 value)
- A one-hour Swedish massage (an $80 value)
- A soy-paraffin hand treatment (a $9 value)
- Complimentary fruit, chocolate, and champagne<p>
Karma’s, Rachel Nelson, uses her training with established brands including Aveda and Vidal Sassoon to perfect the revitalizing services at her elegant sanctuary. Pampering spa packages indulge entire bodies, lavishing extra attention on faces with custom organic aromatherapy facials that cover visages with stimulating antioxidants to rejuvenate skin cells more effectively than a mask made of Red Bull. Hungry head snakes devour a juicy caviar treatment to increase moisture and shine, and afterward a trained mane maven wields a brush and lock dryer to blow out strands into sleek and shiny ‘dos. During the Swedish massage, a massage therapist’s nimble fingers relieve the built-up stress from bad hair days past with gentle, flowing strokes. Gloves cosset mitts in a warm cocoon of soy paraffin, and throughout the lengthy spa session, complimentary fruit, chocolates, and champagne keep hungry guests from gnawing on Karma’s leather furniture.
Karma Salon & Spa
After meeting in beauty school, friends Rachel Nelson and Mara Malzone envisioned their very own studio for transforming hair and pampering clients. Since becoming the co-owners of Karma Salon & Spa, the passionate duo's dream has come to life, like Pinocchio after he met a genie in a bottle. The two women traveled the world to train with such renowned names as Vidal Sassoon and Wella, and they used their newfound know-how to assemble a crack team of stylists, who overhaul coifs with texturizing treatments or an Italian line of ammonia-free color. Staffers also revivify skin with organic facials and relax muscles with massage therapy. Foot treatments, such as the Mind Eraser, soothe lower limbs with a honey-and-sugar scrub and fragrant lavender mask while ousting painful kickball-related memories.
