Spending a day at a spa is a tranquil experience surpassed only by swimming in a pool filled with mashed potatoes or having a hand model slap you to sleep: Immerse yourself in more realistic pleasures with today's Groupon to Kharma Spa & Boutique. Choose from the following options:
- For $30, you get a signature mani-pedi duo (a $65 value).
- For $47, you get a skincare package that includes a signature facial and one LED-light treatment (a $95 value).

During the signature mani-pedi at Kharma Spa & Boutique, a technician shapes and polishes nails, grooms cuticles, and files surfaces before lavishing skin with an exfoliating sugar scrub and a mint mask. A honey massage drizzles across pores to keep in moisture and allow hands to pet bumblebees without consequence. Countenances take the spotlight with the signature facial, wherein the certified aestheticians conduct a skin analysis to gather intelligence in preparation for a double cleansing, an exfoliation, extractions, a massage, a mask, and a toner. To augment the beautifying regimen, an LED light scans across the epidermis to help to counter signs of aging, acne, and deer passage. During the relaxation package, licensed massage therapists dig their fingers deep into aching tissues and stressing souls with a Swedish massage, a technique of long and gentle strokes. Following the 60-minute kneading, massage maestros exfoliate bodies with a sugar scrub and whisk them into the rock steam room for 20 minutes to sweat and test the habitability of teapots.
Kharma Spa & Boutique
Although Kharma Spa & Boutique adopts classical as well as contemporary approaches to cosmetic care, every service has a common goal: giving clients a brief break from the world and allowing them to relax and recharge before returning. In this vein, the straightforward filing and polishing of mani-pedi treatments can be accentuated with everything from soothing paraffin dips to exfoliating sugar scrubs. Although massage therapists pamper clients with Swedish, deep-tissue, or hot-stone modalities, the aestheticians also perform brief massages for the neck and shoulders as they moisturize and cleanse skin.
For a more modern approach to spa care, the staff also uses a technological arsenal that includes UV-free spray-tan booths, a relaxing rock-steam shower, anti-aging LED light systems, and antioxidant HydraFacial serums. The spa’s separate boutique section encourages clients to linger afterward and peruse the selection of designer handbags, Youngblood mineral cosmetics, Dermalogica skincare products, and bobbleheads of the inventor of the cotton ball.
