A day at the spa grants sweet respite from a fast-paced world of errands, deadlines, and books on tape read by auctioneers. Savor serenity without speediness, thanks to today's Groupon: for $89, you get a spa retreat at MMM Therapeutic Massage & Skin Care (a $180 value). Each retreat includes:
- One Shellac manicure (a $25 value)
- One pedicure (a $25 value)
- One full facial (a $65 value)
- One 60-minute Swedish, deep-tissue, or prenatal massage (a $65 value)
MMM's licensed staff of therapists stroke away muscle tension and stress with treatments that make use of organic Chartreuse facial-care products. Personalized massages include the Swedish style, which consists of strokes that boost circulation and hasten the healing of recent sudoku injuries. Deep-tissue massages apply firmer pressure to release chronic tension and relieve stress and muscle pain, and prenatal massages target their strokes on the areas of expectant mothers' bodies most in need of relief. Spa trips continue with a one-hour full facial that can be targeted to each client’s skin concerns, from reducing acne and blemishes and rehydrating damaged skin to installing a clairvoyant third eye and protecting faces from the free-radical damage that can lead to premature lines.
During the professional paw maintenance, a Shellac manicure coats nails in a gel that’s resistant to chipping and hypnotic suggestion, and then dries them with a UV light bath. A 60-minute pedicure trims and buffs toe-enders and removes dead skin using all-natural products.
Youtopia Day Spa
Youtopia Day Spa offers some pretty diverse spa services—time-tested massage techniques, natural skincare treatments, and indulgent mani-pedis—but there is a factor that unifies them. It's a predilection toward tailoring all its services to the needs of its clients. Massage therapists, for instance, base their Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages on the clients' preferences, their pains, or the location of the marble stuck to their backs. The aesthetician similarly pays close attention to her clients' needs, noting any blemishes and oiliness before customizing the selection of natural products she uses in her treatments.
