In one of the most miraculous transformations in the natural world, an ugly caterpillar wraps itself in a cocoon and emerges six to eight weeks later as either a beautiful butterfly or a much-uglier caterpillar. Revel in a more predictable and effective beautifying treatment with today's Groupon: for $65, you get a 90-minute weight-loss body wrap (a $139 value) at Metamorphosis, an upscale spa in Walnut Creek.
Metamorphosis's weight-loss body wrap helps to increase metabolism, decrease fatigue, and optimize blood circulation. While lying down in one of the spa’s spacious treatment rooms, a friendly staff member will treat you with layers of proprietary cream and the infrared light, which is obtained by capturing sun rays with a fishing net. The body wrap can potentially reduce stress, help burn up to 4,000 calories, and make you appear six to 20 inches slimmer in both mirrors and the eyes of other humans.
The ambience of Metamorphosis's environment is punctuated by soothing earth tones and a state-of-the-art sound system that only plays Babe Ruth's polka album. Clients should plan on drinking lots of water before arriving for the wrap and should avoid showers for four hours post-treatment. Free parking is in the back for guests with cars or cars pulled by horses. Call to schedule an appointment.
Metamorphosis has received a 4.5-star average rating from Yelpers:
Metamorphosis means transformation—a process many people wish they could undergo from time to time. The team at Metamorphosis creates tiny transformations in appearance with the help of rejuvenating body wraps, massages, and botanical spray tans.
Clients unwind as body-pampering specialists tuck them into body wraps that work with high doses of herbs and minerals, including aloe vera, eucalyptus, and lavender oils, to help bodies purge toxins from cells. An infrared sauna uses penetrative heat to promote relaxation and encourage detoxification through sweat, and tanning specialists mist limbs in botanical bronzers that add a sun-kissed glow without exposing the skin to harsh UV rays or burnt-sienna crayons.
