Without proper attention, neglected feet may rebel, assaulting their owners with sudden aromatic eruptions and embarrassing displays of public pliés. Appease hardworking appendages with today's Groupon to Karma Relaxation Spa on First Ave. Choose between the following two options:
- For $35, you get The Director spa package (a $70 value).
- For $35, you get The Doctor spa package (a $70 value).
Karma's The Director spa package fawns over feet to rejuvenate the body, soul, and soles. An ion detox foot cleanse draws out toxins, chemicals, and other foreign materials clogging up the skin. Visitors also receive a 30-minute clothes-on body massage, as well as a 30-minute clothes-on reflexology session. Finally, a special paraffin foot-mask treatment will smooth and soften, leaving feet beautifully primped like boy-princes resting atop cushions of fresh fruit.
For scalp-to-heel healing, guests can indulge in The Doctor spa treatment. A hair conditioning with Indian hot oil enlivens strands and follicles, cleansing hair of built-up dirt and subway debris. A scalp, leg, foot, and shoulder massage kneads out overworked muscles, and a facial mask heals pores. Last, the newly pliant skin and muscles can simmer with a warming tenure in the sauna.
Both treatments come with a $20 gift certificate to be used during a future visit to the luxurious 4,000-square-foot spa. Pristinely appointed rooms beckon with warm wall colors, cushioned couches, and thick carpeting. Return for additional pampering with a massage in a cinnamon-hued space, or cook your cares away in the wood sauna.
Karma Relaxation Spa
Instead of a bar and a jukebox, Karma Relaxation Spa has East Asian art and plush beds between gold and red walls. But, it still has that after-work panacea known as happy hour—from 6 to 7 on weekdays, guests can pay $20 for 25 minutes of a soothing service. Available treatments range from a scalp and neck massage to a paraffin treatment with a facial mask, and they even come with a champagne-based beverage.
Outside of that slice of time, the spa still sets muscles at ease with several types of massages. Therapists utilize Swedish, deep-tissue, and Thai kneading techniques in addition to acupressure work, hot oil, and hot stones. They also combine several treatments into packages named after important titles. The President, for example, includes a massage, ionic detox, fruit skin-conditioner, Vichy shower, and time in the sauna, with or without headphones that only blast the national anthem.
