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 beautifying treatment with today's deal: for $59, you get your choice of body wrap (a $120 value) at Jewell Day Spa in the Sixth Avenue Business District. CityVoters named Jewell Day Spa one of the top five Best Day Spas of 2009.
Jewell Day Spa provides a steaming platter of 60-minute thermal body wraps ($120 each) for anyone seeking full-body beautification, skin wellness, or the sensation of being inside a burrito. The Aching Muscles Wrap, a blend of eucalyptus, peppermint, and other herbs, targets pain relief, while an infusion of allspice, lavender, and ginger is available to obliterate impurities. Or opt to hydrate outer layers of parchment with a holistic blend of lavender, chamomile, comfrey, rose, and other non-irritating, moisturizing herbs. The Vortex and “Moor, Moor, Moor” treatments use natural clay and moor mud drawn from Mother Earth's soft underbelly for detoxifying blends. All wraps are performed on a flotation sanctuary table, a soft pack table that creates a heated, weightless environment for increased absorption and thoughts about astronauts.
Jewell's lavish interior, dappled in neutral hues, emulates the spa's warm, luxurious treatments (click here to take a tour). Warm brown tones, wooden doors' understated tans, and textured stone complement natural decorative touches that reflect Jewell’s eco-friendly practices; the spa uses organic products and environmentally friendly sheets and floors. It's an ideal atmosphere for polishing your skin suit and squeezing out toxins from a long winter spent gobbling white phosphorous for warmth.
