Like trees, most hands and feet cannot mature until they are fully hydrated, nurtured, and then hugged by celebrity lumberjacks. Show your appendages you care with today's Groupon: for $55, you get a Rainforest manicure and pedicure, with a paraffin wax treatment for the feet, from Gina Longo at John of Italy Salon & Day Spa, in Thousand Oaks (a $115 value).
John of Italy Salon & Day Spa delivers a spacious oasis where skilled specialists place an emphasis on lavishing dermises with the latest treatments available. Gina Longo harbors more than 20 years of experience as a nail technician and can enthusiastically guide sojourners through the Rainforest mani-pedi, using Entity's Couture Body line (a $100 value). Hands and feet soak in an infusion of coconut milk, bamboo extract, and jaboncillo berry to cleanse skin of toxins, dirt, and jewel-colored tree frogs. An additional Rainforest scrub, comprised of coconut-shell exfoliants, tropical extracts, and rare African oil of marula, gently rubs away dead skin, allowing eager young skin cells the chance to prove their mettle.
Appendages used to lugging their piano to band practice will be soothed with a massage along their arms and hands as Gina polishes nails with your choice of pigment. Meanwhile, a rainforest mask infused with white beeswax, kaolin clay, and luscious oils puts the spring back in a tired foot's step, rounded out with a flourish of renewing lotion crafted from passion-flower and coconut-milk extracts. Finally, feet are dipped into a warm paraffin wax treatment before cozying up in a wrap or mitt to lock in hydration (a $15 value). This one-hour and 45-minute bushwhack through the rainforest leaves appendages feeling renewed, aesthetically advanced, and fully capable of modeling the latest jumping-jack techniques.
Spa-goers can feel free to relax in the eucalyptus steam room in comfy robes and slippers, or write letters to past baseball commissioners in the relaxation room's soft chairs. Showers and lockers are available for customers wishing to tidy up before or after services.
