As with a freshly fertilized garden, where recently pampered soil sprouts new flowers, pampered skin sheds last season’s rusty ice skates. Freshen epidermal veneer with today’s Groupon: for $60, new clients get a Sugar Glow scrub followed by a Shea-Butter Body Wrap at Missi Kibelbek Massage Therapy (a $120 value). The relaxing, 90-minute, organic skin-sweetener preps outer layers to shimmer beneath summer frocks or pirates' tricornes.
Your session begins with a 45-minute Sugar Glow. First, your body is encased in a blend of organic coconut oil, organic sugar, and essential oils. Once dead skin siphoning is complete, a rich crème is luxuriously lathered on. Next, during a 45-minute Shea-Butter Wrap, a friendly massage therapist applies copious quantities of organic shea butter in long, effleurage strokes. You'll be cocooned in a warm wrap while a massage therapist gently knead your scalp and mesmerize your mind with stories about books of short stories. When your body is finished bathing in a buttery baste, its bone sack will be cleaner, healthier, and more velvety than a smooth operator's excuses.
Missi Kibelbek understands that even the most subtle beauty treatment can be a great gift from one’s self to one’s other self, so personal attention is a priority. Let Missi redefine massage with this flock of delicious techniques, and make amends with that pile of mirrors lurking in the basement. Call ahead to make an appointment.
