Bodies must stay as relaxed as possible or risk triggering fight-or-flight responses while stuck in traffic or making eye contact with Smokey the Bear. Stay safe with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a spa package at Karen's Body Beautiful in Brooklyn (a $170 total value). The spa package includes:
- A 30-minute Dead Sea bath soak (a $50 value)
- A 30-minute aromatherapy steam massage (a $60 value)
- A 15-minute body polish (a $30 value)
- A 15-minute Vichy shower (a $30 value)
Karen's Body Beautiful's cordial staff treats clientele to a slew of pampering spa services that employ all-natural luxury body products. Patrons daintily plunge into a hydrotherapy tub during the Dead Sea bath soak to drench pores with mineral-rich water before drying off with a set of Dead Sea scrolls. Therapeutic aromas relax the body from the inside out with soothing clouds of steam and massages unknot tensions bubbling to the surface with gentle pressure. Exfoliating agents brush off rough patches of skin and remora fish in the 15-minute body polish. The Vichy shower pummels muscles with 15 adjustable shower jets that a practiced therapist adjusts and places to relieve tension with a waterfall-style massage.
Karen’s Body Beautiful
Karen Tappin's namesake spa has a kitchen. The kitchen has no food or frying pans; instead, its shelves brim with jars of shea butter, jojoba oil, and apricot-kernel oils, which skincare gurus use to create nourishing hair and skin products before their customers' eyes. As the serums are brought to life, a team of aestheticians puts them to work, rejuvenating clients' skin with a range of customized facials and body scrubs. While soaking feet from atop the spa’s black leather pedicure thrones, clients can contemplate whether to leave their finger- and toenails naturally bare or don colorful polish, Shellac, silk wraps, french tips, or adamantium Wolverine claws. The beauty haven also soothes bodies in private treatment rooms, where experts melt tension with soothing massages and hydrotherapy treatments amid the space's shades of black and white.
