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 $139, you get a 50-minute Swedish-blend massage (a $90 value), a Set Me Free gel body wrap (a $139 value), and one full-body airbrush spray tan (a $55 value) at Metamorphosis in Walnut Creek (a $284 total value).
The pampering professionals at Metamorphosis lull spa-goers into relaxation with a litany of soothing and rejuvenating services hosted in luxurious treatment rooms outfitted with crystal-clear sound systems. The 50-minute Swedish-blend massage unties tight tendons and improves circulation using long, smooth strokes and clips from your back's favorite television show. During the Set Me Free gel body wrap, which can last up to a total of 75 minutes, aestheticians deftly coat patrons in a detoxifying aloe-herb gel infused with essential oils. Physiques are then cocooned in plastic film for 45 minutes to promote herb-to-body transfer and forewing growth. Wrapees are advised to drink a gallon of water in the 24 hours following the treatment to help the pied-piping herbs lure toxins from their cellular lairs.
Before refreshed spa-goers depart, their pallid pelts morph into golden fleeces with a 10-minute airbrush spray tan that evenly mists epidermises with a solution of beet and cane sugar extracts. After five to seven minutes of dry-time, spray tans can retain their bronze for up to 10 days, enabling pseudo-sunners to maintain their glow throughout a 240-hour marathon of C-SPAN reruns. Be sure to call ahead to make your appointment.
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.
