Though best known for expanding the limits of human thought, the great philosophers were also ardent proponents of skin treatments—rarely furrowing their brows without first applying a de-furrowing cucumber mask. Today’s Groupon will wipe out your own philosophical furrows: for $35, you get $70 worth of massage services, facials, or detox body wraps at Lotus Holistic Spa, Salon & Fitness Club in Aurora.
Lotus Holistic Spa, Salon & Fitness Club treats guests with a range of muscle and skin services, fostering an attitude of holistic wellness for the body and mind. The spa's extensively trained massage therapists wield years of experience and deft fingers, relaxing tensed anatomies and increasing circulation through one-hour Swedish or deep-tissue massages (a $70 value). For additional soothing, a one-hour chakra massage delves into the tissue around the spine, de-tangles knotted necks, and exercises energy work on the front and back (a $70 value). Hot towels and aromatherapy hypnotize the senses, leaving clients as relaxed as a slinky in a hammock. For those looking for a quick, slimming pick-me-up, a detoxifying M'lis contour body-wrap treatment aims to reduce sinister cellulite and shed up to 14 inches around the waist ($70–$95).
Should faces become jealous of physiques' pampering, Lotus provides soothing facials to appease them. Renovate façades with a European-style purifying facial, which employs mango-pineapple extract to cleanse the skin and boost natural radiance ($70). The Lotus signature facial uses organic ingredients to similarly revive exhausted epidermi, inducing an eco-friendly glow sure to elicit admiring glances from passing strangers and intrigued Mother Natures ($70).
