The greatest thanks a massage therapist can ever receive is a pat on the head from a formerly stiff client now flexible enough to dangle from the rafters. Exercise a nimble frame with today’s Groupon: for $80, you get a spa package at Venus Allure Salon and Spa (up to a $165 total value). The spa package includes the following services:
- A 60-minute Swedish massage (up to a $70 value)
- A 60-minute European facial (up to an $80 value)
- A 15-minute moisturizing lip treatment (up to a $15 value)<p>
Stretched across two open levels, Venus Allure Salon and Spa employs a skilled staff of aestheticians, stylists, and a massage therapist to pamper guests with skin and body services. During the Swedish massage, a licensed massage therapist helps ease tension by gently kneading muscles while whispering suspense-movie spoilers. Experienced aestheticians continue relaxing corporal cases with the customized European facial, which uses products from Dermalogica to hydrate skin, combat signs of aging, and imbue skin with a silky glow. Cracked and uneven lips revel in a moisturizing collagen cream with avocado oil and cocoa-seed butter, whose aromas provide a break from the holiday season’s incessant whiffs of peppermint and reindeer sweat. During treatments, free hands can occupy themselves by traversing the shiny face of an iPad 2.
Though Venus Allure Salon and Spa sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Venus Allure Salon and Spa
At Venus Allure Salon and Spa, light streams in through two-story windows and fills an open, industrial-inspired space dotted with black spa chairs and dark-rimmed mirrors. From the balcony, you can watch stylists bustle over heads of hair, snipping off split ends or smoothing down unruly curls with the aid of Goldwell, Nioxin, and DevaCurl products. In other parts of the salon, nail technicians juggle more than seven dozen gel-polish colors, occasionally all at once, and aestheticians dress faces with Dermalogica products during services that range from hydrating facials to sea-mud body wraps.
